Hi I'm riley

i am from boise idaho i grew up in the country and love to be outdoors. i am a mormon.

About Me

i have 4 brothers and sisters and i just finished going to college for the year. i played basketball over in washington at a place called big bend. i enjoy athletics and working, i also enjoy outdoors stuff like going on hikes, bike rides, rock climbing, boating, fishing and riding atvs. i hace always wanted ride a horse but have not done that yet in my life. im studying to become a businessman and hope to have my own business someday.

Why I am a Mormon

i am a mormon because thats what i have always been. but it really isn't that simple. i am a mormon because being a mormon is what gives me purpose and direction. this gospel i live is what gets me out of bed every morning and helps me to get through the trials we face every day. without the gospel of jesus christ and the book of mormon i would be a lost soul trying to figure out what i was doing here on earth. i love this gospel and testify of the peace understanding and joy that it brings to my life every day. i know of the truth of the atonement of jesus christ, that he died for each and every one of us and our short comings, and that he was resurrected shortly after so that we can fallow in his example and become resurrected and become like him. i know that we have a loving heavenly father who knows and loves each and every one of us, and i know that there is a man on earth today that receives prophesy from god for the whole world and that man is president Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

i go to church every sunday but it doesn't end there. it seems like there is something that i can do almost every day or night in the singles ward. a singles ward is a ward with just young adults from age 18 to 30. we have activities and meetings available every day it seems. on monday nights we have a thing called family home evening where we usually play a game or have a lesson then there is always basketball afterwards. on tuesdays there is a thing called institute down at boise state university we go to. after that there is always milkshakes in the cafeteria. it seems like we always have some fun dance or social get togethers every weekend as well. i am a teacher at church and i teach the men of the ward every 2nd week. i really enjoy teaching and love doing it.
