Hi I'm Jean-Richard

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a fun loving Haitian with a big family. I currently reside in the US with most of my family. I work for the Catholic University of America as a Chief Engineer. I love to golf and play soccer. Most of all, I love my family which is my greatest possesion and blessing.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing that brings greater happiness in my life than my membership in the church. The teachings of the church have increased my faith in Jesus Christ, enlightened me of God's plan, and simply made me a much better person than I would be otherwise. The commandments keep me safe. I love knowing that God is the same as in times of old and continues to speak today through a living prophet. I am able to see the hand of God in my life on a daily basis. This is the only true church of Jesus Christ with the fullness of his teachings and authority on the Earth—a bold statement; I know. However, I have learned for myself through the application of the gospel in my life and through the thoughts and feelings I have had through prayer, my personal studies of the Book of Mormon and Bible.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is the essence of not only following Christ's teachings, but trying to become more like him. This is possible on a daily basis through the simple and small things in life such as smiling and saying hello to people as they walk past me on the sidewalks or in the grocery store. I often try to say thank you to others, even if it's just because they took the time to listen to me. Living my faith is being patient and calm when things don't quite work out as planned. Service is also a huge part! As I live my faith, I understand that we don't serve people because we love them, but we love them, because we serve them. I enjoy planned service projects and love looking for unexpected opportunities to help people throughout the day. I love planning lessons and thinking about the needs of those I teach and how the lesson can be applied into our lives.
