Hi I'm Ricky

I grew up in Utah, I like to exercise and stay healthy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a big family, and am the sixth of eight kids. I love to exercise and I enjoy learning about nutrition and how to stay strong and healthy. I plan on going to college when I come home from my mission, and I'd like to study nutrition or medicine so I can help others become healthy.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, but I didn't realize why it was so special until I was about 12, when I learned how special it is to know that there is a living prophet who guides us today. I love the Book of Mormon, and there is a peace that it brings while you read it that you can't get anywhere else. I am grateful to know that through Christ's atonement my family can be together for eternity, and that even though some of my friends and family have passed away, I will see them again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to keep my standards high and following the prophet. I like helping those in my ward, like bringing the sacrament to the elderly or visiting members for home teaching. I know my body is a temple, so I avoid substances that may cause harm to it, such as alcohol or other things. I love going to church and to the temple, and I love reading the Book of Mormon, and just about anything else that will help bring me close to my savior, Jesus Christ.
