Hi I'm Antonia Ricks

I grew up in Utah. I lived in China for 5 months. I play rugby. I'm on a mission in the Texas, Houston South. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Fairview, Utah. I played rugby at SUU and UVU. I like to run and play pretty much every sport. I play the ukulele and violin. I love meeting people and getting to know them. I am on a mission in the Texas, Houston South. I am speaking Spanish. I love this Gospel so much! It just makes me so unbelievably happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but wasn't fully converted til much later. I had to go through some experiences where I didn't have the Gospel as much in my life to really appreciate it and want it. I can say now that I have a strong testimony and am truly converted. I am working everyday on converting myself even more. It's always a work in progress.

How I live my faith

I am on a mission in Texas and absolutely love it. I have been a relief society teacher, athletic director, and ward prayer co chair. I love being in a single's ward and seeing people my age living the Gospel. I pray and read my scriptures, which strengthen me throughout the day! I attend church every week, all three hours. In China I was unable to attend church for five months, so now I love it and can't wait to go every week!
