Hi I'm Will

I'm a Swimmer, Skiier, a full-time Missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm originally from the United States but I'm now serving a two year mission in Canada. Before my mission I went to University for two years. I really love science, especially Biology. I think God's creations are so neat and amazing and I get excited when I learn more about them. I really think that the world around us is such a powerful testimony of the love God has for us. Isn't it beautiful? I really love wildlife and I love seeing all the amazing places in the world. I couldn't be happier to be where I am right now serving others in the Edmonton area. I've found the greatest satisfaction and fulfilment by sharing the message of Christ to others in this mission. Although I will be going home from my mission eventually and continue my schooling and other endeavours I want to continue to share the gospel with everyone I know.

Why I am a Mormon

I had many questions about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and wanted to know if it was true. I decided to read the Book of Mormon and ask God if these things are correct. I received an answer from the Holy Ghost which I would describe as a burning in the bosom or a warm and joyful feeling. I was truly converted and have been a member ever since. This church has helped me live a better life and strive to be like Christ. It has given me opportunities to serve that I wouldn't be able to get anywhere else. Most importantly though this church contains the fullness of the gospel and provides the necessary ordinances to be saved.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by serving others and inviting them to come unto Christ. As a missionary I feel like I can better follow Christ because I dont have other distractions that could get in the way. From when I get up in the morning to when I put my head on my pillow at night I'm able to consecrate my every action to serving God and my Neighbours. I love it!

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The "Word of Wisdom" is a revelation from God about keeping our bodies healthy. We view our bodies with great respect and believe it is important that we stay healthy. We also believe that if we follow these guidelines we will be strengthened both physically and spiritually. These guidelines include no Alcohol, Tobacco, Coffee, Tea, and any other addictive or harmful substances. The Word of Wisdom also adds that we should eat meat "sparingly" and should eat Fruits, Vegetables, and states that grain is the "staff of life." I know that following these guidelines revealed to us by God will lead to a happier healthier life! Show more Show less
