Hi I'm Rich

I'm deeply committed to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I grew up all over the west.I'm a broadcaster and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with pretty normal life; two parents, two sisters, a dog, and me. We lived all over the western United Sates because my parents are teachers and we went where the work was. I went to Washington State University (Go Cougs!) for a communication degree. I worked full-time while going to college; mostly retail, but I also worked at a radio station. I love all kinds of music from country to alternative to oldies, but my favorite is rock! Most of my favorite bands are Christian artists like Skillet, Relient K, or Chris Tomlin. I'm also a total news junkie and a lot of the time you'll catch my car radio tuned to a talk station! I live in the pacific northwest now, some people jokingly call it the pacific north "wet." I love it! I'll hear about people getting depressed or upset when it rains, but I like to go outside and stand in it. Or I love to sit inside and listen to it dance on the roof! My name is Rich, I live in Seattle, I'm a broadcaster, I love the Lord, and I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church, but I left in my teenage years. I joined a Pentecostal church and found many great friends and people full of faith, but something felt like it was missing. I know now what was missing. The complete gospel and further explanation of Christ's Atonement. I also missed modern revelation. I just couldn't believe a loving Heavenly Father would leave his children in the dark after the days of the Bible were complete. I found the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. The of Mormon testifies of the truth in the Bible so I didn't have to give up my wonderful faith in the Bible stories either! And for modern revelation, the LDS church is led by a prophet called and authorized by God. (Just as Christ's church was in His day!) I testify of the truth of the LDS and the prophet Joseph Smith. The gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the Earth today, and God has provided a way (and an example) we can live with our families for not only time but also eternity!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by studying the word and listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. I am also currently serving a full-time two year mission in the Wisconsin Milwaukee mission. I left behind my family, and I left behind the girl I'd like to marry. Someone told me "Missionaries leave their families behind for two years so others can be with theirs forever." I love ministering to people and other missionaries.
