Hi I'm Lionel Walters

I'm a husband, a dad, a workplace trainer and a follower of Christ.

About Me

I'm married to my best friend and we love our daughters. We both have wonderful parents, grandparents and siblings whom we love. We want to be with our family forever and all that we do in life is to prepare to for that goal made possible by our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

In my personal study of the Bible, I have discovered attributes of Jesus Christ that seem to be taught uniquely in this Church. Jesus's goodness and mercy are universally acknowledged among Christian (and even many other) faiths, but His identity as the literal Son of God, separate and distinct from His Father, is central to my faith in and love for Him. Our Heavenly Father lovingly designed the plan for our happiness which included coming to earth so we could learn through opposition to choose good over bad. In order to make our redemption from bad choices possible, Jesus willingly offered to give His life for us so we could learn from Him and be lifted by His grace to return to our Father after this life. Just like us, Jesus had the choice throughout His life to live for Himself or to live for others. He showed us the joy of following God's commandments and putting others first. It is this Jesus Christ--the perfect leader, the perfect follower and the only Saviour--who I love and want to follow.

How I live my faith

My faith and trust in Jesus Christ motivates me to try to follow His example every day: at home, work and in the community. He inspires me to work hard, to be honest and to serve others. He transforms the mundane tasks of daily life into opportunities to learn and grow, and He helps me become more than I could ever be on my own. I know that I am far from perfect, so I rely on Jesus to help me feel forgiven of past mistakes and to give me hope that I can live better in the future. My life is filled with wonder, purpose and joy because of Him!
