Hi I'm Ray Rudd

I'm a Mormon. I grew up all over as my dad was military. I was born in the church. I work for the church at ICS.

About Me

I am in my 60th year. I've been active in the church for about 50 of those years - after taking a short detour in my teens and messing my life up pretty good. I love the Lord and my family - top of the list. My wife and I have five daughters who are as dear as they can be to me, as is my wife. We have one teenage daughter at home still. I am very proud of her and all our daughters. I love recreation, especially out doors. I love spending time with my family, who now live in many different places. I have a Masters Degree in Statistics and work doing as a Quality Assurance engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

As mentioned I sort of got off track as a teenager. I can't say I had real good influences though. But after trying to 'make my own direction' in life I came to realize if I did not seek a greater help (Heavenly Father) I was doomed to be influenced by bad. I could not navigate this world on my own - without falling into way to many bad things. And because The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints is Jesus Christ's church. The one He personally restored after His authority was lost on the earth.

How I live my faith

I love and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the Lord. I try to give my all to Him.

Why is family so important to Mormons?
