Hi I'm Rick White

I grew up in Spokane Washington. I was very active in my faith as a Lutheran. Was converted at 17. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have been married for 35 years. I have 7 Children, and currently 14 grandchildren with another on the way. I continue to play my trumpet as a hobby, and travel extensively because of my work. I currently live in London with my wife as we are working on a major project in the UK with the NHS Hospitals. I attended Brigham Young University to achieve my undergraduate degree and received my MBA from Thunderbird Management School.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Lutheran in Spokane, Washington, USA. I was very involved and served as an alter boy as one would call it. Growing up I was taught that Mormons were no Christians and that I should stay clear of them. But as I saw the changes that were happening within the Lutheran Church as I was in my middle teenage years, I began to question why the moral values of my Church were changing what seemed to be so they could fit in with the worldly way. Because of my mother being baptized into the Mormon Church, I took time to investigate the Mormons. After a period of time, as I got serious about wanting to know if the Mormon Church was truly that of Jesus Christ, I prayed diligently, and received an answer to my prayers. I was baptized on April 15, 1972. I know that Christ lives, that he is our Savior, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God along with the Bible. I know too that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know too that we have a living prophet today that leads the Mormon Church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) I know these things are true and cannot deny them, but rather wish to share the joy that I know because of this belief.

How I live my faith

I serve by working with the young single adults in our Church throughout London. What a great opportunity this is as this group have such strong feelings and testimonies of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
