Hi I'm Berkeley Richard

I grew up on the state line of Virginia and Tennessee. I love the New England Patriots. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am third out of seven kids. My oldest sister has down syndrome and my adopted brother also has down syndrome. I go to BYU in Provo. I am studying art and art history.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of many reasons. My mother was raised in the church and my father was a convert. After converting he met my mother. They raised my family with the teachings of the church and I am a witness to the miracles, blessings and infinite hope the church brings. I have seen throughout my life the goodness in this gospel. Through my family and my leaders and peers' examples, I was influenced to know and understand for myself. I am very fortunate to have this people in my life from the time I was born. Many experiences have taught me personally of the church's truth. There is no way I could deny it.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday and sometimes teach a class for new members of the church. I attend church events within my area. I try my best to follow the church's council. Such as reading my scriptures daily, praying daily and being honest and kind to those around me.
