Hi I'm Riley

I was born and raised in the small town of Bothwell. I've worked on a farm most of my life, and I love to work. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a proud son of a father who taught all of his sons a good work ethic. I have always had a job outside working with animals or with the ground. I like mechanic stuff, i'm good with tools. I played on our high school baseball team. I love hanging out with my friends, we enjoy shooting our guns. A lot of the time we play paintball. If we aren't doing either of those two we are out in one of our shops making some kind of art or working on someones truck.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon mostly because that is what I grew up believing. However, I stayed Mormon because of all the little witnesses that i have received. I know some people get this big sign of how this religion is true, but I wasn't that lucky. I had to search hard to find those little signs and testimonies that in the end converted me. It mainly came through what seemed to be coincidence's but I have a strong testimony of prayer because I have never had a prayer that hasn't been answered, it may not have been the way i wanted it answered or right when I wanted it answered, but in one way or another I have received an answer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith mostly by example. I try and get everyone involved in service projects that we have around our small town, we do a lot of work for widows. In our ward, most people have their eagle's award from scouting. And seeing how a lot of the younger kids look up to me, i too worked very hard at getting this award. Sometimes our service projects are not that fun, and you can see that easily if you look at the younger kids that start dragging their feet, so by example I try and get them excited. Doing all this service for random people really gets everyone together members and nonmembers. I also live my faith by going to church every Sunday and going to the temple regularly. I believe that this will keep the spirit with me if I am striving to do what the lord has asked me to do.
