Hi I'm Ralph III

I was born in Taiwan, and raised in Utah. I love to write books, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am very interested in books. When I was young I loved reading books. I was isolated from people most of the time because I didn't seem to fit in. I found solace in books and my teachers who were always kind to me. One of the books that I would read was the Book of Mormon. My family would read together everyday and we would talk about what we read and what we were doing the rest of the week. Then we would offer help if needed to those family members going through a tough time. I am the oldest of 4 boys. Now, I am trying to write a few books of my own, when I am not going to college to get my pilots license or degree in Aeronautic Engineering. I hope to become a pilot. As a pilot I will be flying out of town a lot and have some down time and fresh ideas in between flights to write my story. I like to write them in two perspectives. Mine and a girls, usually provided by a friend. I hope that someday they will be made into movies or animated series.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith. My parents encouraged me to attend church and all church activities. I found that the people of the church were very kind and strongly believed in the teachings. I learned as much as I could and loved the gospel. As I went to church each week I felt peace and love from my heavenly father, I just want to share this feeling with everyone, I want them to know that no matter who you run into, what happens in your life, your father in heaven will always be looking out for you.

How I live my faith

In the church we have activities every week that we called mutual. We would arrive at our church and do one of several different things; work on our scouting goals, go and have a recreational activity, provide service, eat food, or help to strengthen our faith. We would always start the session speaking about what the days activity was and thanking the people that had arrived. I loved to go to mutual every week because we always did something that was fun with people we knew and for people that we hoped to help. I am currently serving a full time mission in Sacramento California, where I am sharing the message of the atonement of our savior Jesus Christ and trying to help them come closer to him through faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.
