Hi I'm Ronald

I live in England and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 31 years old and I have a lovely wife who I have been married to for 10 years. My wife is Scottish and we got married in Scotland. Me and my wife went to the Preston temple and we were married for time and all eternity so we can stay together forever. I have 2 lovely children, one is a girl and the other is a boy. We are a happy family and we love doing activities together. I am currently doing a Business and management degree and will hope this lead me on to better things and will help me to find a better job that I'm currently in now. Hopefully doing this degree will help me to provide better for my family.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a Mormon because I believe that there is a supreme being out there who is my Heavenly Father who loves me and cares for me. Heavenly Father cares for me because he has given me a path back to him through sending his son Jesus Christ to be a sacrifice for us so we can be forgiven of our sins that we commit. I also believe that we need prophets and apostles on the earth today as the same in the bible with Moses and Noah. The Mormon Church is the only church that has a true prophet on the earth today and Heavenly Father warns us through the prophet we have on the earth today. I believe the Book of Mormon to be true and I believe it goes hand in with the Bible testifying of our saviour Jesus Christ and also the love our heavenly father has for us. I believe Joseph Smith to be a prophet of god and that he restored the gospel to its fullness on this earth and that he also found the god plates and that he was able to translate then for us to read today. I Believe god has a plan for all of us and that families are central to his plan of salvation and that marriage between a man and women is important to getting back to our Heavenly Father. I believe this to be the true church because we have tables on the earth today where I can go to be sealed to my wife for all eternity. I am thankful for the knowledge of the Book of Mormon and bible which teaches me that I will be wife my family for all eternity no matter what happens. I believe I have been blessed so much for living the commandments and that the lord has blessed me for being obedient and I know that this church is the true church and I know you can find true happiness here and I am thankful for the everything that I have and if it wasn't for this church I wouldn't have these great blessings.

How I live my faith

At this time I am currently on the bishopric of church that I go to. A bishopric comprises of 3 people, a Bishop, a first councillor and a second councillor. The bishop is the head of the church that we go to and the first and second councillor are there to help assist the bishop and help lighten his load. I am currently second councillor on the bishopric and have the responsibilities to watch over the young men of the church and to help organise activities that the church may want to do. I also have the role to watch over the primary presidency which comprises of 3 great ladies and I try to oversee them and help them make sure the primary children are taught to a high standard about the gospel and that they are well looked after. I also oversee the Sunday school presidency which comprises of 3 great men and I help them to train the Sunday school teachers so they can teach Sunday school to a high standard and create a great learning environment about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I also have the responsibilities to look after our church building that we go to and to make sure that it is regularly cleaned and that all the maintenance repairs are done on the building. We like to keep our church to a high standard because at the end of the day it's is the lords house and we need to respect that by making sure the church looks clean and tidy. I also sort out the topics for the sacrament meetings that are held every week and make sure the topics are focused around Jesus Christ and helping others. I currently enjoy what I am doing and striving to help lighting his load because the bishop has an important role to look watch over the members of the ward. I also go out home teaching once a month to visit 3 families and to teach them a message from our latter day prophets and apostles and I also watch over these families and strive to help them to progress in the gospel and to help them with any challenges that they have in their lives.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The power to create children is very sacred. Our Father in Heaven has commanded that the sacred power and privilege of sexual relations be exercised only between a man and woman who are legally married. This is the law of chastity. It means that we must not have sexual relations before we are married, and after we are married we should have sexual relations only with our husband or wife. Keeping the law of chastity brings safety, happiness, peace, and self-respect. It also deepens married love and protects families. Breaking this law is serious. But those who have broken it can gain forgiveness and peace through repentance and obedience. God wants the best for you and for all of His children. Following God’s plan of reserving intimacy for marriage will help you and your family be happy. Show more Show less
