Hi I'm Vivian Ricks

I'm from South Dakota and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born on Christmas Day and felt privileged to share my birthday with the Savior. I grew up on a farm and learned early on how to work and how to help out. I am the mother of 1 child and the step-mother of six.

Why I am a Mormon

The Savior and His Church are at the center of my life. Everything I do, I hope to do in harmony with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know happiness can be found by following the teaching of Jesus. The Book of Mormon is scripture and is another testament that Christ died so that we might be able to return again to God.

How I live my faith

I am now serving a mission for my church with my husband, Elder Richard Ricks. We are fortunate in being able to serve in South Dakota, the state of my birth.
