Hi I'm Joe Riley

I live on a ranch in New Mexico that my great grandparents homesteaded. I am a 5th generation rancher. I am a Mormon

About Me

I have worked on a ranch all of my life, I hunt and camp for hobbies. I have learned many skills by working with other ranchers. I like to rope and have been a member of the junior rodeo association in my town for the last 6 years.

Why I am a Mormon

My dad is a convert to the church. I have 4 different forms of Christianity in my family. I am a Mormon because I feel that it has all the pieces of the gospel. I feel that it is important that my family know my love for God and my savior Jesus Christ. I try to live my life as an example for the rest of my family and those I meet, so that they will want to know the Savior like I do.

How I live my faith

Since I was homeschooled we had community service as part of our weekly program. I have helped with the toys for tots program as well as our community food bank program. Our county has a community garden that I was able to help build.
