Hi I'm Rick

I grew up in S. California, spent a career in the US Air Force and recently retired from teaching High School.

About Me

I am a retired US Air Force Officer, retired school teacher, and currently teach Adult Education part time. I am a Father of 5 children and 5 grandchildren. I have been married 37 years (we met attending college). I enjoy golf, genealogy, and guitar (the 3 G's!) -

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I discovered the Church while attending College in Northern Calif. At the time I was searching for spiritual meaning and found it through discussions with the Missionaries and the promptings of the Holy Ghost confirming that God lives, Jesus Christ is his living son and paid for my redemption (and everyones) through his atoning sacrifice. The Holy Ghost also confirmed that the Book of Mormon is true along with the Holy Bible. It is another record and testament that Jesus is THE Christ.

How I live my faith

My wife and I are active in our Ward - (she plays piano for the Primary, and is a Cub Scout Den Leader, and I teach in the High Priest Quorum and am the building scheduler) We participate in all our Ward activities including: Church meetings, Home Teaching, Ward Social Activities. Canning, Helping with the Church Peach Orchard, and the list goes on. We love where we live because we have wonderful caring neighbors.
