About Me

Hi, I'm Ron I served a mission in Colorado I got married to my wife in the temple I have been a Mormon my whole life I like working with the youth in the church I like construction

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate to have come from a long line of Mormons and taught right from wrong as a youth. My parents set a good example for me. As a teenager I had to find out who I was and gain my own testimony. By being a Mormon we are taught to live a good clean life. I have found that when I make good choices and live the way that I am taught I am happier in life. I am glad that I have the church to help me raise up my family. Being a Mormon is about being a family. The church to me is a larger family made up of our individual families. We call each other brother and sister because we are just that, brothers and sisters. As a large family we work together to help each other and encourage each other to be better people. This is a great strength to have when living in a world of temptation that is trying to get us to make poor choices. I thank my Heavenly Father regularly for the strength of my family and my church family and the help I receive in raising my children. A good friend just lost his son recently. It was a sad time but because we understand the purpose of life and the fact that we will be resurrected it is comforting to know that we can be together as a family after this life. Being a Mormon gives me the teachings that the savior died on the cross so that we can be resurrected and be a family together forever. Being a Mormon give me a real purpose for life. I am proud and grateful to be a Mormon. I know my Savior lives and that he was resurected. I know that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me is there to help if I need the help.

How I live my faith

Life is full if daily challenges. I try to live the commandments and be a good friend and neighbor. Happiness comes from helping others and obeying the commandments. Every day we are put to the test to see how we react to temptation. I work hard to make the right choices and live my life the way that we are taught. We have the example of Jesus Christ to follow and daily I am trying to do as he has taught me.
