Hi I'm Ralph.
I grew up in New Hampshire on a dairy farm and I'm a Mormon.
I am an MBA Graduate in Finance with a commercial real estate appraisers license. I like all outdoor adventures such as dirt bike and ATV riding, snowmobiling, and skiing. I also like taking walks in the woods, cutting cordwood, and making maple syrup. Unfortunately, I do not live in NH anymore but Southern California, but the weather is warm most of the year. I am a Father of two small children, one boy, and one girl, and I am married to my best friend and love her dearly. She is the perfect one for me.
Why I am a Mormon
Although I have been a Mormon my whole life, I too had to be converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Like many others, I had to read and ponder the scriptures, ask questions to get clarity, then ask God, in the name of Jesus Christ if what I was taught was true. The Holy Ghost, or a warm feeling in my heart which enlightened my mind, bore whitness to the truth of the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith as a Prophet of God, that Jesus Christ is my personal saviour, and that God knows me individually and cares for me like any loving father does for his own son.
How I live my faith
I have had many callings, or responsibilities working in the church as a sunday school teacher and leader, youth teacher, missionary, secretary, adult leader, and with visiting other members to care for their needs and bring a short lesson each month on how living a christlike life is important. Often, I would volunteer to clean up a park, or help set up and clean up a church dinner party. I have visited the sick and given them blessing to be healed of their ailments. What some people call coincidenses I phrase them as miracles which cannot be denied.
