Hi I'm Ron

I served in the U.S. Marine Corps for 22 years and converted to the Church of Jesus Crist of LDS when I was 37.

About Me

I am a father of 3 (2 girls, 1 boy). I grew up in Utah and moved to California when I was 15. I joined the U.S. Marine Corps after high school and served for 22 years. I met my wife in Okinawa Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

I lived my life as a faithful Christian with a strong testimony of God our Heavenly Father, His son Jesus Christ. However, I was never really active in any denomination or church. I had reached a point in my life when I knew I needed something more. That is when I met my wife and her testimony of the church drew me to her. I was baptized and joined the church 4 months after our marriage at the age of 37. I have never been happier in my life. Although I have undergone more difficult trials and hardships, since joining the church, my faith and knowledge of God have carried me through them with a comforting spirit.

How I live my faith

I have been a 1st counselor in the elders quorum, youth Sunday school teacher, High Priest secretary, 11 year old scout leader, young men second counselor, and scoutmaster.
