Hi I'm Richard

Lived in a small town as a kid. Big City as a teenager. Love to fish, and work. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Father of 7. Grand father of 9 3/4. Love sports, I do triathlons with my kids. Love to fish. Got to have a project going, like to work with my hands and to fix things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of a good friend who took my mom, my two brothers and I in after my dad died. We had moved to Southern California and they helped us get settled and introduced us to the Church. I don't remember much about the missionaries, but I do remember hiding from my brothers in the closet and reading the Joseph Smith pamphlet by flashlight. I came out of that closet with an overwhelming feeling that Joseph Smith was a prophet. I have since learned many great things. The more I learn, the more evidence and faith I have that this Church is true. That Jesus is the Christ. He died for us. His Atonement makes it possible for us to change and become better people, and most importantly to feel good about ourselves. Who we are and what we can become. The Savior loves us!

How I live my faith

I work with the Boy Scouts. Love to take them hiking and camping although I am getting to be a bit old for too much of that. Love to help neighbors with their projects.
