Hi I'm Bill Leveque

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, a predominately Scandinavian/ Finnish populated region. As a youth I never attended church. When I was 18, I became interested in Religion, and learned of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints after graduating from High School. I married an LDS girl who was just finishing up college at MSU in East Lansing.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon after intense questioning of the doctrines of the church. A pair of sister missionaries knocked on my door, I was just out of High School and was living in the Lansing Michigan Area. The Church appealed to my lifestyle, and now at 53 years old, I have been a member for 33 years. I look back over the years to all fond memories of my friendships acquired in the Mormon church. It has shaped my life, and is a refuge for me from the winds of the adversary. I can't imagine my faith any different than it is.

How I live my faith

My first calling of home teacher was a testimony of dedication. My Companion, Brother Haag taught me the value of consistency and love for others through service. I have served as a teacher in the Sunday School, Teen and Youth classes. I lead the Sunday School as President, served the Church as the Men's group President and shepherded a small church of Saints in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as its President. Some of my fondest memories were created while serving as counselor in a Church Presidency. My most comfortable positions were Church Clerk, Computer Specialist, High Counselor traveling around the Upper Peninsula and 2nd Counselor in the Bishopric.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

We are reunited with our families, so to us, death is not necessarily a sad time, but a time of separation for a brief period. Show more Show less
