Hi I'm Ron

I grew up in the San Diego area, and now live in the Dallas area. I am a management consultant and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 26 years and I am the father of eight children - four girls and four boys....we adopted two of our boys we from Ethiopia. Professionally, I am a management consulting partner with PwC. I enjoy the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have studied, pondered and prayed to know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored, that The Book of Mormon stands next to the Bible as a witness of Christ, and that God continues His pattern of calling prophets to bring His message to the world.

How I live my faith

I am blessed to have the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I am grateful to feel the Savior's love and the guidance of the Holy Spirit as I seek for direction through prayer.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived, that He was and is God’s Son. It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. These prophets knew about Heavenly Father’s plan for His children and the mission of Jesus Christ. They recorded that Christ appeared, after His Resurrection, to the people in America, taught them His gospel, and formed His Church among them. The book contains the teachings of Jesus Christ, testifying of His Atonement and His love. It supports and verifies the Bible. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise that those who read it and sincerely pray about it can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4). Show more Show less
