Hi I'm Ron

I'm a chiropractor, father and woodworker...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy fly fishing, camping and playing with my kids. I also can spend a lot of time working on DIY home improvement projects. I try, but usually fail miserably at keeping the house clean...I also enjoy wood working, oil painting, fly tying, gardening, and keeping my wife happy.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into a family that was already active in the church. But we all have to chose our way eventually. Some kids find it necessary to try just about everything. I have always been grateful that I didn't have to do that--you can make a lot of mistakes as a kid that follow you for a long time. The main thing that kept me out or trouble growing up was the church. I met and kept good friends who held the same ideals as I did--both in and out of the church. But mostly it was a firm belief in why I am here and where I'm going that kept me out of trouble. Now I have my own kids and am working on keeping them safe in a world full of pitfalls. The only way to keep our kids safe is helping them develop faith and trust in the Lord, Jesus Christ. I believe He knows me personally and I know that by putting my trust in Him, I can do whatever is necessary and then some. It is wonderful to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in its fullness to help me guide my family and keep them safe.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith everyday. Reading the scriptures and praying on a regular basis provides the foundation for a good day and lets the Spirit into my life. I also help in the church I attend by playing the piano, singing bass in the choir, giving talks and teaching lessons in Sunday School as I'm asked to do so. I also visit members of our church at their homes on a regular basis to see if there is anything I can do to help. It's wonderful to have a good network of friends to rely on and fall back on when you need a helping hand. I believe another aspect of living your faith is by being an upstanding member of the community. I strive to be honest at work. I participate in community activities and serve in the local chamber of commerce.
