Hi I'm Rhett

I'm a student. I love computers. I'm a outdoorsman. I'm a pianist and composer. And I'm proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I love computers. I'm a Sterling Scholar in Computer Technology. I enjoy doing anything and everything with design or technology. My main focus in High School was computer oriented classes and engineering classes. In College, I hope to obtain a degree in Computer Engineering and want to go on to create and own my own computer business. I am an accomplished pianist. I have played the piano for over 11 years. I enjoy composing my own music and arranging songs and hymns. I had the opportunity a couple of years ago to play one of my original compositions at an Ovarian Cancer Benefit Concert. I enjoy sharing my music with other people. I play musical numbers in church. My favorite thing to do at home is just sit down at the piano and play for hours. I love being outdoors. I love doing everything from fishing and hiking to just sitting out on the porch on a nice summer evening. I love to go backpacking in the mountains and enjoy being in nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have felt the spirit so strongly in my life, I know it could mean nothing else but truth. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true Church on the earth today. I know that Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer, is the head of this Church. I have come to know that with all my heart. I know that Christ suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane for me on an individual basis and not just for me in a general sense. He knows us individually by name. He loves us more than we can comprehend and wants with all His heart for us to return to live with Him in the presence of God the Eternal Father. I know that Joseph Smith had questions regarding which church was true and which one to join and was reading in the Epistle of James in the New Testament one day and came across the verse that inspired him to ask God. (James 1:5) When he prayed, I know that he saw God face to face, and, standing next to Him, he saw His Son, Jesus Christ. Joseph was called upon to restore Christ’s true Church to the earth. He worked for many years to restore the Church. I know that he could not have endured that much heartache and pain if he was trying to make a church unto himself. He had Heaven’s help in restoring the Church through direct modern revelation so those of us who live on the earth today could have the opportunity to be a part of and reap the blessings of Christ's Church. President Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet on the earth today and is here to lead, guide, and watch over Christ's Church on the earth. He stands as a witness of God. The Savior lives. I know with all my heart he does. Joseph Smith was asked to translate ancient records through the power of God which is called The Book of Mormon. I read this book everyday. It gives me direction in my life. I encourage you to obtain a free copy of the book and read it for yourself. I promise you that if you read with an open mind and a sincere heart. It can change your life.

How I live my faith

For the past 2 years I have been a Special Needs Youth Counselor for handicapped youth in my area. I attended activities every Thursday evening for about 2 hours and help those individuals who have special needs. I was assigned a buddy that I worked with during the year. I helped my buddy do scouting and work on various fun and educational activities while his parents were given a break from the constant worrisome task of taking care of his every need. I worked with 2 young men who have limited ability to verbally communicate as well as many other physical and mental challenges. It is amazing how well they work with the counselors and progress in the various activities we participated in each week. I love the special needs kids. They are so fun and exciting. During the 2013-2014 school year I was one of ten members of the LDS Seminary Council at my High School. There are approximately 1200 students enrolled in the Seminary program through our High School. As a member of the Council, I attended a weekly Council Meeting for an hour before school. In this meeting we planed upcoming activities, events, morning firesides, and other Seminary sponsored activities. I was recently called to serve as a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be serving the people in Korea. I look forward to helping them learn more about Jesus Christ.
