Hi I'm Jon Richins

I'm a Texan. I'm an Eagle Scout. I'm a BYU student. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University, and a future public administrator. I sing jazzy, fun music and I like to beatbox. I like to read all sorts of books, from Harry Potter to the Odyssey to Best American Science and Nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church, but I decided to stay after praying to know whether the Book of Mormon is a book of truth. I know that it is and that God loves us and wants us to know the truth. He wants us to live with Him in Heaven, so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to show us the way and to make it possible to overcome sin. I know that if anyone wants to know God or know whether the Book of Mormon is true, they should pray.

How I live my faith

Daily. I keep trying to do good and be good, and rely on Jesus Christ every step of the way.
