Hi I'm Riley Chase Crosby

I'm an athlete, a bacon fanatic, an electronic music addict, a unicyclist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Phoenix Arizona and lived there my whole life! I graduated from highschool in 2010, and have been working, playing with fire, eating bacon, riding unicycles, and polevaulting since! Until I decided I was going to serve a mission in the Des Moines Iowa mission. I will return to home sweet home in October of 2013. I decided to go on a mission so I could share the message of Jesus Christ with the world. The peace and joy that can be gained from this is impossible to comprehend. It is even harder to type into a website. In order to understand, you must expirience it yourself. In order for others to expirience it, someone has to tell them how. I LOVE being a missionary. I also LOVE to listen to electronic music. Anything that makes you want to dance. All kinds of electronic will do. Dont be alarmed, I also enjoy other types of music as well :). I have a lot of weird hobbies. Amongst these are unicycling. Dont you dare call me a clown. It was a great summer activity that kept me out of trouble!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have felt Christs love in my life. I am definetly not perfect, and no one is. But because of Christ I can life my life free of guilt and sorrow. I'm a Mormon because I dont know where I would be in life without the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Reasons: -My family can be together forever. That is something I want, not only for my current family, but someday when I start my own. -Through Jesus Christs atonement I can ble cleansed of sin, and return to my Heavenly Father. -The blessings recieved in this life, and in the life to come, by following the Lords example. -The joy and happiness I feel when I go to Church. -The peacefull feeling I get when I pray, or when im in need of comfort. -Knowing that Jesus Christ has felt the pain that me, and everyone else in this world has felt. -Jesus Christ is always there for me.

How I live my faith

In the past I was a Boy Scout! I loved it but I never achieved the highest rank of an "Eagle Scout". Right now I'm and Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am in Des Moine Iowa teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are ready to hear it. I know that this is true, if I did'nt know that this church was true, I wouldnt have given 2 years of my life to teach others about it. I strive to love others around me, and see them as the sons and daughters of God that they are.
