Hi I'm Richard Billeter

I grew up in the Bay Area in Northern California, I am pretty down to earth and I love taking adventures and being outdoors.

About Me

My name is Richard, I have grown up in the church my whole life. I have been heavily involved in sports and Boy Scouts of America and school. I played soccer and swam for ten years and I loved it. I work at the best grocery store in the world, Trader Joes, I've been there for four years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for a few reason; In my life I have come to know that without the help of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and the promptings of the Holy Ghost I would not be where I am today. My life has never been as good compared to when I am following the Saviors example and trying my best to be like him. I love the Bible and the Book of Mormon, they truly testify of Christ and his role as the Savior and I have come to know for myself that he lives. I know the atonement is real and it has worked in my life. There is nothing more joyous and sweet than the feelings of complete forgiveness through the atonement of Jesus Christ. I believe in Christ and i know that this is his true church, I believe that Thomas S. Monson is our current prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true. I love the Gospel and I love the joy that it gives me.

How I live my faith

I think the best way that I have shown how I live my faith is by being an example to those that I work with and do wholesome recreational activities with, such as my employment at a grocery store and playing soccer with. Everyone that i work knows that I am a Mormon and they know what my standards are. It's interesting when you do the things that you believe in every day and implement them into your life, people really start to notice and asked questions. I have taught young kids in scouting and other children's programs and shown them how integrity and the love of other people can really make them happy. I love being able to share the message of the gospel to friends. Even though they aren't interested they understand who i am and why i believe in this church.
