Hi I'm Riley

I grew up in Hyrum Ut. I am on my mission right now until 2017 in China, Hong Kong. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I swam for over ten years and competed in many high ranking swim meets, I was elected 1st team all state my last three years of water polo of the seven years I played. I love being active and doing things with friends and family. I love being in the water and doing things outside. I am on my mission to China, Hong Kong. I am very excited to go serve the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the gospel and have never happier when I am not living the gospel. I have never had huge experiences like others but by small things have I seen the hand of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in my life. I know that if we listen to the spirit and do what we need to, that others will see our example and want to know what makes the "Mormons" shine with the light of Christ. And I know that if you do what is required of us that we will become joint heirs withs Christ.

How I live my faith

I try the best I can to serve others anytime that I can, even sometimes when I do not think I have time, I have realized that if you do what The Lord wants us to, then you will not fail in your other daily activities. Put trust in The Lord, do what he has commanded, and help others at all times. In my new calling as ward missionary we have responsibilities to find those who are willing to learn the gospel for the full-time missionaries. By doing this we will be inviting many people to come unto christ and be perfected unto him.

What is being a Mormon like?

Where I live, Mormons are highly populated so I do not get as much persecution as others around the world. But that does not matter, because being a Mormon means to be loving and kind to all you come in contact with, it is a very sacred thing to me, to be able to take upon the name of Jesus Christ and do work in honor of our Heavenly Father that is in heaven. I work hard in order to follow the commandments which have been given unto us, but even though it is sometimes hard to do what is right, I know that in the end, if you do the absolute best that you can, you will be able to live with our Heavenly Father once again.
