As the founder and creator of LifesGift, Rick maintained his apparent abilities privately until early 2002. Raised in a Christian environment, Rick struggled to find answers for his abilities through faith and prayer. In 2002, a dear friend consulted with Rick in regards to a loved-one who was soon moving on with a cancerous disease. With Rick’s assistance, the pain of losing a love-one turned to comfort in knowing that life is everlasting. The friend’s words changed Rick’s life path. With prayer and guidance, LifesGift began its path in March 2003. The foundation of LifesGift is to assist and support Rick’s abilities as a Paranormal Communication Consultant, and to create an environment of sharing life’s everlasting gift. With a business and marketing plan in place, the LifesGift team continued to focus and soon launched the LifesGift web site in May 2003. With the installment of the LifesGift Message Board, the site experienced an amazing 400% growth in its first fiscal year. Since the launch, the Lifesgift website continues to announce monthly growth.
