Hi I'm Riley Smith

I grew up playing football, being in the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play any sports. I was a three sport letter-man in high school (football, track, and wrestling) and I love staying active. I am an avid outdoors-man. I love hunting, fishing, riding four wheelers, and sitting around the camp fire with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel has given me the happiness that nothing else can give me. I know where I came from, why I'm here, and where I am going. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints has been restored and I know this to be true because of those feelings of happiness that I receive when I read the Book of Mormon and listen to the modern day Prophet and Apostles.

How I live my faith

When in high school, I helped my football team to cut down on their cussing and bad language. One of the other teams fathers commented to our coach that our team had the cleanest language he had heard during and before the game. I am currently serving a mission in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. While on the mission, I have the opportunity everyday to help people change their lives and come closer to Christ. It has been a blessing for me to see others become better people as they allow Heavenly Father to enter their lives.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Riley Smith
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. Taking place in the Americas. It is about the same time as the prophet Jeremiah in Jerusalem. The Book of Mormon is proof that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, because God called a prophet we have Christ's restored church on the earth today. We have a prophet. His name is Thomas S Monson. He receives revelation for the church today. By following his guidance we can become closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ's church.
