Hi I'm Mike Ripley

I grew up in California. I met my wife in Idaho while in the Navy and was soon converted to the Gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I worked in the nuclear power industry after college. I am a convert to the Mormon Church. I enjoy working with computers and Family History. My wife and I have two sons and eight grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife is a life-long member of the Church. When we were married, I became interested and started attending with her. She and the missionaries helped me gain a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. My testimony has grown as I learned more of the plan my Father in Heaven has in store for me and my family if I continue to do those things that are pleasing to Him.

How I live my faith

I have served in a number of callings in wards we have lived in. Most recently I served as the assistant clerk for finance in our ward. My wife and I are about to begin a senior couple mission for the Church in the South. We will serve as leadership support in a small branch and have the opportunity to teach the Gospel.
