Hi I'm Ritchie

I grew up in Heber, Utah. I am a graduate of Wasatch High School. I'm serving in the California Bakersfield Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family, playing sports (particularly wrestling and football), and spending time in the mountains around my home on my dirt bike. After my mission I plan on attending Penn State University where I will be involved in the wrestling and Army ROTC programs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith. I have ancestors on both sides of my family line that crossed the plains as pioneers to come to the Salt Lake Valley. As I have lived my life, I have found that when I apply the gospel principles to my daily living, that is when I am the happiest and have the most joy. I have come to know that we have a Father in Heaven and a Savior who love all of us perfectly.

How I live my faith

While at church, I am assigned to help a child in our ward youth group who has down-syndrome. Outside of church I am assigned to an elderly couple and I help them with things around there house whenever they need some extra help.
