Hi I'm Justin Riggs

I'm a competitive Team Roper, Car Enthusiast, Formula 1 Fanatic and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fifth generation Arizonian. No, I am not used to the heat even after living in the sweltering desert for my entire life! Arizona is commonly viewed as a nasty brown desert, which is true for about a third of the state. The other two parts of Arizona are massively different than what people expect. Instead of brown desert there are soaring rocky mountains with rain-soaked forests and lush golden plains stretching for miles. I'm off on this tangent because like Arizona, I am a person of stark contrasts! Part of me is into nerdy things like Star-trek and Lord of the Rings but the other part of me is a Team Roper and Cowboy. I love the outdoors and Hunting of all types but I also love school and reading. These ranging hobbies and passions have given me wonderful perspectives on life and allowed me to make friends with anybody and everybody.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because over the years as I have learned the different beliefs and views of the church and The Gospel I have come to the realization that no other religion has so much to offer in terms of knowledge. The hope and assurance that the church has given me shows to me that it is true and that It is the Kingdom of God back on the earth today. And who wouldn't want to be a part of his marvelous Kingdom!

How I live my faith

Part of being LDS or Mormon is partaking in what we call 'callings' in the church. These callings are no more than specific jobs we are asked to do. Right now I am called to help the full-time missionaries in the area. There is no other activity I can think of at this time in my life that is as fulfilling as teaching about Jesus Christ to different people in the area. Jesus Christ has the ability to change lives for the better and being able to help others make healthy changes in their lives is the best thing ever!
