Hi I'm Michael Richardson

I grew up in Utah. I'm serving a mission in Sydney Australia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family! I enjoy spending time with them in whatever way I can. I enjoy being outside, especially exploring new landscapes.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have read The Book of Mormon. The more I read, the more it made sense. I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father to let me know if it was true. He answered my prayer. Ever since that day I have done my best to be obedient to what God has asked me to do. As a result of my efforts to be obedient, my testimony has grown stronger and stronger each day. I am still far from perfect, but now I know The Book of Mormon is the Word of God, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is truly the Lord's church on the earth.

How I live my faith

I've come to know that the only real Joy that comes in life, comes from following the example of Jesus Christ. Because of this, it has become my quest to follow in His footsteps. I'm trying to become a true disciple of Jesus Christ by applying what I learn as I study the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
