Hi I'm Riley

I was raised near Los Angeles, CA. I love almost every sport there is. I love to crack jokes. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports, but more so, I love to be a goofball and make others laugh. I attended BYU for 2 semesters, and am currently serving a full time mission in the Fiji Suva Mission. I love to be outdoors. I love to dance all the time! but I mostly like to practice Polynesian dancing, specifically Hula since my dad is part Hawaiian. I love the gospel and the blessings it brings. I love my family and friends, shout out to my 1 year old nephew who is practically my best friend.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the LDS Church has changed my life. I could not envision myself where I am today without this gospel. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that He lives today. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God, and has the proper authority to perform saving ordinances such as Baptism. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and the Bible as well. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and that God lives, loves, and speaks to us today. I know that God and Jesus Christ know me individually, and that I can return to live with them and be like them someday, because of the sacrifice that Christ made.

How I live my faith

I try to serve others as much as I can. I know I can be selfish sometimes, but when I really think about it, serving is the best way I can live my faith. Right now, I'm about to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. To me, this is a great way to serve others and at the same time live my faith more fully.
