Hi I'm Riley

I grew up in a little town in Idaho. I live to be outdoors and I love Jesus Christ.

About Me

I love to explore new and exciting things, especially the outdoors. I love to fish, hunt, hike, run; you name it! I have played several sports including baseball, soccer, and rugby. I also trained in several field events in track for many years. I also love to sing. I have been in my school choir, which is a really good choir, as well as an A Cappella group my friends and I started in our high school. I sing where ever go. I love learning new things where ever I go. After I return from serving a two year mission, I plan on going to college to further my education.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church. Both my parents are members. But when I was five years old they got divorced and my Mom remarried a few years later; to a really good man might I add. I love my Step Dad. My whole life however, my parents were really good at allowing me to make my own decisions in life. They had a tremendous amount of trust in me. Of course they explained the consequences to decisions, but they left the decision making to me. They never forced me to do anything regarding the gospel. I chose to get baptized because I prayed and got a confirmation. I accepted all callings because I knew the Lord had something for me to learn. And now, I'm serving a mission, not because anyone told me to, or because it may seem to be expected by some. I'm serving because I love the Lord and I know this gospel is true. It has changed my life, and I know it can change other people's lives, for the better, forever.

How I live my faith

When I was young, I was super shy and hardly talked to anyone. But as a grew, I was called to several leadership positions in Boy Scouts as well as in the Church. That, and the amazing leaders I had, taught me so much and really helped build my confidence and allowed me to strengthen my testimony in Christ. I love to serve others or just have a nice chat with people no matter where I'm at.
