Hi I'm Stephen Richardson

I love singing, I love having fun, I am currently serving a mission for my church, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ever sense I was 15 I have been taking college classes, and recently was able to graduate high school with my associates degree. One of my favorite things to do is sing, and arrange random A Capella songs with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, but I have had to learn that it was true for myself. I read the the Book of Mormon, for the first time when I was about 14. One of the last chapters says that after we finish reading the Book of Mormon, we should ask God with a sincere heart if the book was true. I knelt down and asked God if the Book of Mormon was true, and at that point God let me know it was true. I'm so thankful for this church and to know God loves me. I have received countless blessings that came from trusting in God. My testimony of this gospel is growing each and every day! I know it is the true church with all of my heart!

How I live my faith

I always try to look for ways to help out the community. I have come to know that serving others is the best way to feel Gods love, so i try to serve as much as i can. I am currently serving a mission in Jacksonville florida, and I have been able to help people come unto christ. Nothing makes me happier, than seeing my friends that I have been able to teach enter into the water of baptism.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Stephen Richardson
Jesus Christ suffered for our sins, and afflictions so that we can get through this life. Without Jesus Christ and the atonement, I wouldn't be the person I am today. Whenever I go through struggles in life, I know without a doubt that I can turn to my savior Jesus christ, and he will help me through them. He suffered for each and every one of us, because he loves us! "For behold, I... Have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer... even as I."
