Hi I'm Riley

Currently on a mission serving the Vietnamese people. I love any sports on mountains, lakes, or snow. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Logan, Utah. Before my mission I attended Utah State University and am majoring in Biochemistry. After that I hope to continue on in my education in medical school. I love mountains, lakes, and all the sports that go with them. I am always down to go boating, snow skiing, and mountain biking with my friends and family. I love Lake Powell. My family has gone every year since I was little and it never gets old! Nothing like sitting on top of the house boat watching the sun set over the red rock. I also love just chilling and being lazy. When I don't have anything better to do you might find me playing Legend of Zelda, Mario Kart, or Pokemon. I'm currently serving as a missionary in the Anaheim, California Mission. I am learning Vietnamese in order to serve and teach the people of Vietnam here in southern California.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so blessed to have always had this church as a part of my life. I have continued to follow this gospel because of all the blessings in my life that have come from it. I am so thankful for the way this gospel has shaped my life. This is a gospel of happiness. I know through living this gospel anyone can find happiness. There have been times where the trials of life have knocked me down. Through the gospel of Jesus Christ I was able to get back up, brush myself off, keep on living, and becoming stronger because of those experiences. I have come to know the solace, peace, and fortitude Christ offers us through the ultimate sacrifice of mercy he made simply by trying my best to follow his teachings. Christ has given me more to me than I will ever understand and I feel honored, blessed, and pleased to serve him. I have felt the joy and truthfulness of this gospel and I know that this church is the real and true church of God on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

Faith without works is dead. I believe hand in hand with having faith is acting because of that faith. I am currently serving a mission. As a missionary I have many opportunities to serve others and share with them about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the opportunity I have to wake up everyday and serve God. I want to share with everyone the happiness that comes from having a relationship with their Father in Heaven and from his plan for us.
