Hi I'm Nathan Richins

Hi! My name is Nathan Richins and I will serve in the Salt Lake City South Mission from 9/7/16 to 9/7/18. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Nathan and I am very musically inclined. I marched snare drum in the drum line at my high school for three years. Also, I write and transcribe music. I am currently in the process of making an indoor marching percussion show. I am a very kind and loving person and will make friends with basically anyone. I graduated in 2016 and will be serving in the Salt Lake City South Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I leave September 7, 2016 and I will come back two years later. I look forward to sharing the joy that the gospel brings me with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a Mormon and have been a Mormon all my life. I can say it's really a blessing to me because I made so many friends in the church. The people there are really kind and whenever an opportunity comes for anyone of them to serve they will serve whoever it is (whether it is helping someone move or giving up a full day to spend some time and take care of someone when they are sick at home). They don't expect anything in return. We welcome anyone who is wondering about us to join us on Sundays and find out what we are all about.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is how anyone else can live their faith and that is by serving others diligently. I always find time throughout the day every day to think of how I can help someone in need. If I can't find any opportunities to help I always just sit down and read the scriptures and it helps me to feel the Spirit. Also, I pray to get inspiration about things that I am having trouble with. I got up every day at 6:30 during high school for early morning scripture study before school. It helped me to understand the scriptures and God's plan for my life.
