Hi I'm Ron

I'm a Mormon. I have been a Mormon all my life. I grew up in southern Arizona. In a town called Bisbee

About Me

I am currently retired. I am a father of four children and currently have fourteen grandchildren with one on the way. All my children except one life close by so I see most of the all the time. One son lives in another state. I retired from U.S. Airways this year. I worked there for 22 years. I am also widowed as my wife passed away 6 years ago from cancer. We miss her greatly. I attended college and have a bachelors and masters degrees. My masters degree is in counseling. In the past I have worked for Child Protective Services and Department of Corrections, and owned two businesses. I finished my career working for U.S. Airways as a flight attendant. I also served in the United States Army in Viet Nam as a First Lieutenant. I like working out in my yard and enjoy going to the gym and swimming.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the LDS Church. I was born into a part member family, that is my father was not a member of the Church but did not object to us attending. I never doubted the Church from the very beginning of my understanding of its teachings. When I was sixteen, I read the Book Of Mormon for the first time, cover to cover. I remember not being able to put the book down as I read it. Each night as I read the book, I knelt by my bed and asked the Lord if the book was true. I remember the feeling I got, that burning feeling that the Spirit whispered to me that it was true. Since then, I have never doubted. Although I have my weaknesses and have not always been the person I should have been, the testimony still burns strong.

How I live my faith

In my current church calling, I am the Sunday School adult class president. My main responsibility is geting some one to say the opening and closing prayers. In the past I had many and diverse callings. I also volunteer to serve in one of the temples. I enjoy going to member's homes, as what is called hometeaching. We visit with the families and leave them a short message. And when I can, I also like to volunteer around the community with Mormon Helping Hands doing service projects.
