Hi I'm Ray

I grew up in California. I served a Full-Time Mission in Santiago Chile. I graduated from BYU. I'm Married and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 51 years old. I have 4 children. I'm divorced from my first wife. I have found the love of my live and now have been married to for almost 5 years. My wife has two of her own children so together we have 6. I work for a large internation coporation who's primary business is to outsource call centers. I manage the implementation of Technology in those call centers. I love the Gospel and I love all sports. I love to Ski, Mountain Bike, Play Basketball, Football, Tennis, Body Surf, etc. My wife and I like to go to movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church. I come from Pioneer stalk that crossed the plains. However, I had to make the choice for myself. There came I time where I needed to know if the Church was true or not. I questioned whether or not God really existed. I have had many experiences through my life, small and large, which have provided me the opportunity to feel God's love for me. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and prayed to know its truthfulness. I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost in my life testifying of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I have also had times in my life that I have sunk low in sin and have had to rely on the redeeming power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I have felt my sins be forgivein and my weaknesses become strenghts. I know Chrst lives. He is my savior. His atonement is real. I know that His Gospel has been restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that there is a Prophet on the Earth Today, Thomas S. Monson. God has not left us alone and speaks through his servants the Prophets. I know that anyone who sincerly seeks truth and reads the Book of Mormon and prays to know if it is indeed God's word will know of its truth and power through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know that through the Sealing Power of the Priesthood families can be together behond this life forever. I know that true happiness comes from trusting in God and living his commandments.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the a good person everyday. I pray to my Father-in-Heaven often. I read his reveled word. I attend Church and try to serve my fellowman by helping those in need. I try to respect my body and keep it clean both internally and externally. I love my wife and my children and I try to love my fellowman. I am not perfect and make mistakes everyday and I repent everyday and try to do better.
