Hi I'm Riley

I was raised in Queen Creek Arizona. I love to farm. I love tractors. I love the Book of Mormon and my Savior. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to farm. My dream is to have a big farm with my family one day. I also love wrestling and football. But overall I love my Savior Jesus Christ. I love the fact i can pray to Heavenly Father and know someone is listening. I love the Book Of Mormon, because when everything was falling apart around me and i felt like God abandoned me or i finally wasn't worthy of his love, the Book of Mormon was the thing i turned to. I know with all my heart that Heavenly Father never forgets us. There is nothing you can do to make Him not love you. I have found that when i was in what seemed like a dark abyss, the Book of Mormon had just the right words to say to bring me up into God's loving arms. And something about me is i love to tell people about the Book of Mormon and about the Atonement of Jesus Christ because I know the power of those things.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because i love the fact that its all about love. I love that this church is about lifting others and forgiving people. I love the feeling i get when I read the Book of Mormon. I love knowing that because God so loved the whole world and because He is the same Yesterday Today and Forever, that He has called another Prophet today. And i love the fact that the church is all about inviting others to come unto Christ. And i know that every doubt i have had about the church i have studied the scriptures and in the end asked God about it. And i can say with out a doubt in my mind, that this church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ which it follows is true, and that i know if anyone truly wants to know if this whole Mormon thing is true, all you got to do is read the Book of Mormon and ask God with a sincere heart and you will also come to know and feel the things which i know and feel.

How I live my faith

How i live my faith is by trying to never passing by on an opportunity to help and lift someone. I live it by serving a mission. I live it by praying to Father in Heaven and making him and His Son Jesus Christ a huge part of my life and keeping them involved in what i do. I live it by knowing that no one is perfect, especially not me, and realizing everyone is trying to get better and all i want to do help them in anyway i can. I live it by always saying sorry and showing my love for others through my actions.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Riley
God is our literal Father in Heaven. He is the Father of our spirits. We were created in his image. He has a body of flesh and bone. He loves us so very much and wants us to be happy. Like any father he wants us to grow and have experiences and so we can have what he has and more. So he created this earth for us to live, its kinda like when we leave our parents home and we go off to learn for ourselves how to live and what to do. But sometimes in this life we stumble, we feel alone, we make bad choices and sometimes don't know what to do. Well if I was in a position where I i did not know what to do i would call my Dad and talk to him and tell him what i'm going through and he would help me get through it. Its just like our Heavenly father, when we have tough times in life where we stumble, feel alone or just lost and confused we can pray to Heavenly Father. He loves when we pray to him and talk to him, cause he is our Father after all, and because he wants to help us. He wants to share his knowledge with us and show us the right path. He loves us perfectly and knows who we are and what our potential is. He will never give up on us and he even sacrificed His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, so we are able to return home and be like Father in Heaven. He loves us, and is always watching over us.
