Hi I'm Rick Bell

I was born and grew up in Tarzana, California. I now live in Alta Loma, California with my wife and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have five children and three grand children. I am a Certified Financial Planner and find satisfaction in helping people make wise choices with their money. I enjoy, road biking, racquet ball and ping pong, mountain adventures and the beach.

Why I am a Mormon

I would have to say I am a Mormon first of all because I was raised a Mormon by loving parents. However, in my late teens I came to a cross road in my life where I had to either know for myself that Jesus Christ actually re-established his church on the earth in 1830 or he did not. I came to know for myself through an answer to prayer and the grace of the Holy Spirit that our Savior has actually called living prophets and apostles again to lead his church and to prepare the world for his glorious second coming.

How I live my faith

My service to the Lord Jesus Christ has involved may opportunities. I have had the blessing of serving in leadership positions as well as support positions. Blessing the lives of others through service and sharing what God has done and is doing gives me great satisfaction. My most memorable experiences have been in helping others come unto Christ through sharing his word and the great blessings I have personally received through his grace.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Rick Bell
All that we are, all that we do, all that we experience and all that we are blessed with comes to us through the grace of God. Jesus Christ taught us his gospel and showed us the way to live. He wants us to follow his way of life and he expects us to try to become more like him day by day. We always fall short and the Atonement of Jesus Christ carries us day by day, assisting us in becoming more like him through his Grace and the promptings of the Holy Spirit. He stands at the door and knocks. He hopes we will open the door. Show more Show less
