Hi I'm Lucas Rydalch

I'm from Utah. I played basketball and football in high school. I will attend the University of Utah in 2015 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a kid who loves sports, and loves being around sports. At a young age I was influenced by my father and uncle to play basketball and football. They both played basketball at the University of Utah, and so of course my favorite college team is the Utes. I grew up playing both basketball and football, and I want to pursue playing football in college. I enjoy being with friends and family, and I am very thankful for them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that everything that I have been taught since I was just a little boy are true and that I know that I have a true prophet that I can follow, and that he will never lead me astray. I also know that through the teachings of our prophets that one day we can return and even become like our loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I go out and do service projects whether they are big or small. I try to live as the Lord would live and try to influence others to do good. I read my scriptures as often as I can and pray morning and night. I also attend church each and every Sunday and partake of what's called the sacrament, which is a great blessing.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Lucas Rydalch
The Mormon lifestyle is awesome. Although we live up to high standards, there are many things that we do that are benefitial to our health and our spiritual well being. Such as the Law of Chastity and the Word of Wisdom. We are really just normal people that have high moral standards that are set to help our health and spiritual well being. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Lucas Rydalch
We do not worship Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith was a prophet that was the main instrument in helping Christ and our Heavenly Father bring His true church back to the Earth. With this role we highly respect Joseph Smith as a prophet, and just as the prophets of old we follow his councel. Show more Show less
