Hi I'm Ron Stingel

I am a convert of 21 years to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. How my life has changed for the better!

About Me

I am 71 years old, Have a beautiful bride to share my life with. Between both of us, we have 6 children, 13 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. We love them all. We love to travel, golf, camp out, and visit the kids/grandkids and to serve in the church. Since we retired, we started working one week a month at the L.A. Temple as ordinance workers. We love serving in the Lord's House and encourage all who can to do the same. Our lives have been so richly blessed that we wish everyone to be able to receive the many, many blessings He wishes us to have.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been interested in the "Mormons" since I met a wonderful family when in the Air Force, they always tried to do the right thing in every situation. I was impressed with their honesty and wonderful work ethic. They always seemed so happy and willing to help anyone do anything, even the teen-agers. They gave me my first Book of Mormon, but I was too much "In the world" to want to read it all the way through. Later they asked if I would take lessons from the Missionaries, and I did. But, again, I did not want to "join" the Church and always put off Baptism till I was reassigned to another Base. I never forgot! I always wanted to feel the spirit again the way I did when learning from the "Elders." I love that, as a group of people, the Mormon people always try to do the right thing. That is why I finally chose to be a part of this wonderful people by being Baptized and Confirmed a member of the one true Church of God on the earth today.

How I live my faith

Julie and I have made a commitment to The Lord and to each other that we will try our very best to be a tithe- paying family...to do all of our home and visit teaching each month.. to pray with real intent each day...to read the scriptures each day. When we have callings in our ward, we always try to do our very best to serve The Lord and our brothers and sisters to the best of our ability. We love preparing for activities, cleaning our Ward building, and always try to respond to the needs of our neighbors. Do we always succeed? No, but we always try, and recommit when we fall short of our goals
