Hi I'm Rio

I grew up in Utah, I am a Navajo. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 1/4 Navajo and grew up for 9 years on the Navajo Reservation. I plan on attending college and going into medicine after serving my mission in Montana. I enjoy soccer, running, reading, studying this gospel, and sooo much more.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a fairly active LDS family. I grew up going to church with my family and had been immersed in it all my life. When I reached high school I began to realize that I had really always just gone cause it was what my parents did and so I began to lose the faith I had and question my faith. It was around this time that I was in seminary one day nearly asleep when one of my best friends come over and smacked me on the head to wake me up. Every day that year if I started to not pay attention without fail he was there to put me back to work and eventually I didn't need his help. I started reading my scriptures and praying daily. That year we had a Christmas devotional in class and during the testimony meeting at the end I got up and shared my testimony and I knew without a doubt in my mind that the church was true. I knew that my Heavenly Father loved me and that he never left me but sent one of my best friends to give me the shove I needed.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by as of now giving two years of my life to go and serve my Heavenly Father. I have always invited friends to come to church activities. I have always had my faith and belief in the gospel of the LDS church. At times I had close friends ridicule the church but I always knew in my heart that the church was true and defended and explained the gospel to them. They didn't always listen but I defended my faith.

The Book of Mormon is written from the people in the Americas after Christ ressurection he came and taught his gospel and this gospel was lost until Joseph Smith was shown it in a revelation and translated it.
