Hi I'm Richard

I'm from southern California. I'm studying conservation biology in college. I enjoy horticulture and playing music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying conservation biology. I really enjoy growing 'exotic' plants, such as carnivorous plants and orchids. I also enjoy learning and playing music on several instruments, predominantly guitar, and writing music as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in an LDS family, but have had had the opportunity to learn and choose for myself if this is my desired life path. I choose to continue in the church because the doctrine and organization ring true to me; and more than anything else, I have found that living according to Christ's gospel, as understood by the LDS faith, helps me be a happier and well rounded person. To be continued :) ...

How I live my faith

I typically attend church every Sunday. As I just joined a new congregation, I don't know many people and don't yet have a set responsibility within the church. The members are very friendly, however, and I hope to get to know the members better. I hope soon to have the opportunity to be involved in serving the congregation by being a teacher or speaking. I should soon be able to start 'home teaching', in which you go to visit, get to know, watch out for, and share a spiritual message with certain other members of the congregation on a monthly basis. Otherwise, I just try to make improvements in my own life, and try to be the best person I can be. I want to try to be more helpful and loving to others in my life in general.
