Hi I'm James Richards

I was born in St Louis but i have lived all over. Future United States Marine and Missionary. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have spent the majority of my life moving from place to place and school to school. No matter where i moved music was always a constant in my life and remains one to this day. I love good southern cooking and a good book. Currently awaiting to serve my mission and will be serving in the United States Marine Corps upon my arrival home from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member on the church because i had the privilege of being born in the church. But while that started my membership in the church i remain a Mormon because after a lot of studying and reading of the scriptures i came to the understanding that this is the true gospel of Christ and has the power to change people's lives the same way it has changed mine. I'm a Mormon because of the immense joy and blessing it has brought to my life, because of the guidance and direction the church has given me, and most of all because i know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by fulfilling my current calling within my ward at church as the secretary for the Priest quorum. I also have a mission call to serve in Manila Philippines and will be leaving in under two months. I will be spending the next two years among the Filipino people and try to live my faith to the fullest and bring other unto the same understanding of the gospel that i have.
