Hi I'm Rich Lavine

I'm a devoted husband and father of four. A business owner and supportive member of my ommunity and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my wife more than anything in the world. We have 4 amazing children and a great extended family. We own a small grocery store in our town and do business in the same town that our kids go to school in and that we live in. Involment is important to me in all aspects of my life. I'm interested in all things Apple. My emotions run close to the surface. My family and I love the outdoors. Hiking, camping and ATV's get us all excited :-).

Why I am a Mormon

I was "born in the church". However, I believe that all must gain their own understanding and belief of the Savior and his gospel. Mine came as I experienced the death of my Grandmother who was very close to me. A dark and gloomy day in my life was brightened by a ray of sunshine and a calming of my body as it was made aware to me that she was in a better place and that my Heavenly Father was comforting me in my time of need. I've had many experiences since, but that was the beginning.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday with my family. We serve in responsibilities such as Sunday School teachers and many other responsibilities. We live it at home as well. Teaching our children respect and reverence for Jesus Christ. When oppurtunities come up we teach and learn from them.
