Hi I'm Ron

I'm a Mormon. I joined the Church when I was 18 years old. I grew up in Milwaukee Wisconsin.

About Me

I am married and have 5 children and 8 grandchildren. I went to a Catholic grade school because my dad is Catholic and to the Lutheran church with my mom because she was Lutheran. My mom joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints about 15 years after I did. My professional back-ground is in Civil Engineering, Manufacturing Management and Human Resources. I enjoy down hill skiing, golfing and going on trips and vacations. I love my wife and all of my children and grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I appreciated the teachings I learned in the Catholic and Lutheran churchs but I felt there were more answers to lifes questions. I wanted to know where I came from, why I was here on earth and what was heaven all about. The Church answered these and many more important questions regarding being married for all eternity and having my children. I read the Book of Mormon and compared it to the Holy Bible and felt that they both taught the same teachings about Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon became very special to me just like the Bible. It is great to have the person the leads this Church really receive revelation from God. It is important to me to know that Jesus Christ lives and is at the head of this Church.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is a church of reaching out and helping others around the world. There are so many opportunities to help members of the church as well as those that are not members. It feels good to help all of God's children. I get a chance to teach in church, take a dinner over to someone that is ill, help someone move as well as have a fun time a church dances and parties. Daily prayer and scripture study helps me face life with greater strength.
