Hi I'm Riley Johnson

I am from Idaho and Serving in the England Birmingham Mission.

About Me

I am the fourth child born out of 6, I am also the only dancer in my family who loves soccer and I have loved dancing since I was 3 years old. I currently am working on becoming a cosmetologist and can't wait to graduate and have that license! I love doing anything outside and most of all I love hanging out with my family whenever I get the chance to see all of them! And that's a little bit about me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have realized what amazing things this gospel and our savior have and continue to do for me. I was raised in the church but even always being around the gospel it took me time to really figure out if this was something I believed in. So I then started to live a life style which wasn't consistent with the commandments and standards we have been taught. I will admit that even through this period in life I truly did believe I was happy but I then grew tired of not having answers and after a while I prayed, and feeling the spirit that came after was something I strive to feel every time I pray now. I turned my life back around and accepted the church and the morals and standards it teaches you back into my life and I believe that this is true happiness. I found a courage within myself that came through gaining a stronger testimony and understanding of what this gospel is and how it blesses you in this life. Its something so hard to describe but is truly beautiful and I would encourage anyone and everyone to try and feel the love our savior has for us in our hearts.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a caring person to all those around me. I also am a ward missionary for my singles ward here and I carry out that role by posting posts on social media of quotes or short videos the church has put out over the last few years. I love being an example to people especially who don't understand our faith and that is why I also have chosen to serve a mission. So right now I am striving to prepare myself to become the best missionary I can be not only for my mission but for my life as well!
