Hi I'm Jackson Ritchie

Born and raised in Utah, currently uplifting lives in Germany. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jackson Ritchie, I'm 18, and I am currently serving as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in the Germany Frankfurt mission. I love music, and have been involved with it all my life. I have graduated from Lone Peak High School, and Utah Valley University with an Associates Degree. I am currently enrolled at Utah State University, and plan to resume my studies toward my Bachelors Degree after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this Gospel to be the true Gospel, as contained in the scriptures and as we study in our church meetings. I love it. I find joy and peace in our Savior's Atonement and I use it everyday to become a better person.

How I live my faith

I have been serving in my faith for a long time. When I turned 12, I had the opportunity to be the President of a group of boys in my ward. I would lead, plan activities, and hold regular meetings with them, to help us all prepare to serve missions eventually. I did this for about a year. Since then, I have attended other meetings in my church, helping me learn more and grow in my testimony.
