Hi I'm Riley

I'm a Photographer, Brother, Librarian, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I live in beautiful Utah, every day I am amazed by the beautiful world around me. I love to capture the creations of Heavenly Father with pictures. I consider my photography as a way to testify of the glory, and majesty of God. All things truly testify of him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon, i have been raised in a home with active parents, and a faithful family. I know that this is the only true church. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and I know that it is true, i know that if you read it, and pray to know if it is true. That the Holy Ghost will tell you that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith, at the age of 14 prayed to know what church was true. I know that Heavenly Father, and his Son Jesus Christ came to him and told him that none of them were true. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon with the power of the Spirit. I also know that there is a way for you to know also that this message, the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is true. All that you need to do is have faith enough to read the Book of Mormon, ask God if it is true, and then act on what you will learn from that wonderful experience. I hope that you will have a desire to join the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and find the joy that I have found in it. There is joy when we follow Christ, I have felt it, and it is the greatest thing in this world. I say these things in the name, of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

3 Nephi 5:13 Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life. Alma 18:34-35 I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true; And a portion of that Spirit dwelleth in me, which giveth me knowledge, and also power according to my faith and desires which are in God. I try to do what our savior does, and that is to share love, truth and comfort to the world. I do this by living the Doctrine or teaching of Jesus Christ, the best that i can. I pray each day to be able to see opportunities to serve the people around me. I live the Gospel by loving it.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Riley
We don't pay out church leaders because a calling is from God, it is service. It also is a test of faith for the individual. Show more Show less
