Hi I'm Richard

"I grew up on a Ranch in Southern Alberta Canada. I'm a Mormon"

About Me

I have three children and 5 grandchildren. I love my family, both the living and those who have passed on. I enjoy doing family history research, learning about my heritage and making a record. I share stories about our family with my children to help them know where we come from.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon by default, that is my parents were Mormon. However, I have learned that we all have to gain our own testimonies of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through reading the Book of Mormon, I've felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that it is the word of God and that it was translated by the gift and power of God by Joseph Smith Jr., His prophet. Through His Prophet, God restored the Gospel and His Church to the earth with Priesthood Authority to act in His name, under His direction through those He has called to lead the Church. I am a Mormon by choice :)

How I live my faith

I've had a variety of 'callings' in Church. My current favorite is helping others learn how to gather information about their families. Our Church is all about families, so to identify them and learn about their lives helps us know ourselves.
