Hi I'm Ralph Lemmert

I grew up in Seattle, Washington, USA and I am a Mormon who was baptized at the age of 52.

About Me

I am now retired living in Mesa, Az. I was always involved with marketing and management during my working career. I now enjoy playing golf, working in the yard and enjoying our pool. I love being with my wife, children and grandchildren. They are the joy of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon after I went church shopping. While visiting the Mormon church I immediately felt welcome and I could feel the Spirit that was there during the Sacrament Meeting. The missionaries told me I could be with my wife for all time and eternity and I immediately said where do I sign up. I love being a member of the true church and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know the plan of salvation is true and living this gospel is the only way to achieve true happiness. We have a living Prophet who receives inspiration from our Heavenly Father and I am grateful for the restoration of the Priesthood in these latter days. This all provides the meaning and purpose to my life.

How I live my faith

Since I was baptized I have always been active in my church. I have received numerous opportunities to serve and these blessings of service to others have enriched my life. I have seen the spiritual growth in myself as well as witnessing that growth in others. One of the joys that I had was when I was in a position to ask a Sister to serve as a Primary Chorister. She was blind. What a wonderful blessing this was for the Sister and the children as they learned the primary songs and to learn of her handicap. A blessing for all from our Heavenly Father.
