Hi I'm Ron

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 60 years young and have been a consultant for over 30 years. I am married to my dear wife for 14 years and we were sealed in the Boise, Idaho Temple. I have been a Mormon from birth, however, I was inactive for a greater part of my life. I became active when my wife wanted to have the lessons taught to her by the missionaries. The truth was revealed to me again by the added conformation from my wife. Life has not been easy for us, as I was given the wonderful opportunity to deal with some serius medical problems. The last 10 years has been a struggle medically and financially, however looking back, it was a good lesson for me and by the faith, I survived and we have bonded toghether more during that time. I love to cook inside or outside. My wife also loves to cook and we enjoy making our meals and of course enjoy the rewards. Our life is settle these days because we understand the Gospel and know the plan of happiness. We walk on the beach, laugh and enjoy our every minute of each others company. I take comfort that the happiness will continue into the eternities with her. Life is truly remarkable, even when it sometimes a struggle.

Why I am a Mormon

While inactive, I was not really happy. The stresses was a mountain very hard to climb. I noticed some of my friends that were active in the Church, and they all seemed happy, yet their stuggles were simmilar to mine. After receiving my temple recommend, I just started to understand my faith just a little more and it has continues to grow. I love the way the members watch out for each other. I have mowed lawns, painted houses given rides and/or just talking to someone in my faith. I am in wonderment the way the church deal with humanity. From that, I see what I see and want what they offer to me and my family in terms of joy and happiness.

How I live my faith

First off, I take counsel from the church leaders. They keep me busy in and out of the church with my current and past callings. Being part of the community, I enjoy working on the community projects that we have the opportunity to be involve with. I see the presence of the church all over the world. I had talked one time to a man from Africa. We were working at the local cannery. He was holding up a can of peaches that we were canning at that time. He told me that when he was a young person in Africa, his food had the same words on their cans. When he came toi the US, he found out what those words were and where they came from. Seeing that and hearing stories like this mean alot to me, by understanding the depth and love this church has to offer.
