Hi I'm Ralph

I grew up in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, I moved to North Carolina to seek a new life for My Children and I. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ralph, I'm a Husband to a wonderful wife and father to our 5 children in a blended family. I was born in Pennsylvania to parents who divorced when I was a very young age. They even had lived in different states. So although i was born in Pa. I actually did a lot of growing up in New Jersey. I had spent some time with both parents through out the years. So i didn't actually come from a "church family" per say. But all the same the lord has his ways to reach out to his children. When I was living in N.J. around the age of about 12 yrs. of age, I had the experience of going through a hernia operation. This was a terrifying experience for me. I was so scared. But I went through with it. I rested and recovered from it and was happy to return to being a kid again. But, Long be hold, It came back a very short time later in the same spot. I was devastated when i went to the doctor and he said i need to rest and go for another operation. When returning to home, I was watching T.V. that weekend and on Sunday I had got to listing to some preachers on a channel. This stuck with on into the night, when when bed time had come I was in bed and thinking of what I had to go through, another operation, this brought tears to my eyes and as I sobbed I prayed to Heavenly father to Help me not to have to go through this again. I had cried myself to sleep and when I had woke the next day, I was amazed and astonished to learned and see that the Hernia was gone.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I have found through time, and study, as well as prayer, and searching the truthfulness of this Gospel, That it is indeed the teachings of our Savior. That we have been enlightened to know all that our Heavenly Father has giving to us to move forward is found here. If you are willing to have an open heart and mind. If you are truly, seeking truth, I testify to you that you will find it here. If you are willing to give some time to get to know and to study the doctrine and to pray I promise that you will only increase your knowledge and faith through the reading of the bible and the book of Mormon , and I say this in the name of Jesus Christ , Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith just like that , by Faith. Faith in the Lord Christ, as Savior and redeemer of the world, I am a convert to the church which took place back in the end of 2011. I help to teach sometimes in our meeting during the last hour. Doing so has been such a learning experience for me. I believe it helps the teacher to learn and grow closer to our heavenly father as well as the other members of our men's group. It has been such a wonderful journey and blessing for me to do so. My Wife and I try to have prayers with our children and and time for some reading the scriptures all together whenever it is possible to. This is so essential to pray together whenever possible as a family as well as privately.
