Hi I'm Richard O'Neal

I grew up in South Carolina, I love riding Motorcycles, and my grand children, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Iam a Family man, been married for 30 years. I have four beautifulkids. !boy and 3 girls. I have 4 grandkids. I work for a Paper Mill and My wife and I are Partners in a cleaning company. I served a mission when I was 19 in Perth, Australia. Two woderful years of my life. I realy enjoy riding Motorcycles. I guess you can say thats my hobby. I ride with a group of guys that are all members of my church. I absolutely love sports. Football and baseball are my favorites.

Why I am a Mormon

My Parents are converts to the church. So that would make me a second genration mormon. I feel that I have always felt something unique about the church growing up. It was on my missin that I gained a true testimony of this gospel. For the first time I could no longer ride on the shirt tails of my Parents testimony. I wanted to know for myself. My testimony has grown line upon line over the years. I know without doubt or reservation that Jesus Chist lives, and that he lived a perfect life. I know that while here upon the earth he organized and taught us a plan to bring us back to our Heavenly Father and to provide us happiness. I realized that if Jesus was perfect and he organized a perfect practice. That practice should never change , and being that there was only one Jesus there should be only one true church of Jesus Christ here on earth. With that understanding I sought to find the truth. I know that this is his church and it contains his Principles, Doctrines, Ordinances, and Organization. Besides studying and learning his truths. I put it to the test. I prayed and asked my Father in Heaven if it is true. My feeling I had and the overpowering confirmation of the spirit has born witness to me, Its true. I know it and I cannot deny it. It has been the greatest blessing in my life and in the lives of my Family. May God bless you to know as I know. I say this in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ, Amen

How I live my faith

I have learned that Family is tuly the greatest gift and that by us all living and embracing the gospel together brings us happiness and eternal life. I live his commandments to the very best I can. I have served faithfully in many callings in the church without pay. I have been a Youth leader, Bishop, and now serve as a member of our Stake presidency. I do it because of the opportunity to serve others which is exactly what our Father in Heavens has asked and shown us to do.
