Hi I'm Walter

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Tennessee. I am an engineer.

About Me

I am an engineer and work with equipment. I am married and have four children. I like playing basketball and I play a little piano. I love crossword puzzles, also.

Why I am a Mormon

My college girlfriend asked the missionaries to visit with me. At first, I thought that I would never join the Church. On the third visit, I prayed and asked if their message was true, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true. While praying, I compared my feelings with the following scripture, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." (Galatians 5:22-23) I felt a great peace come over me and received a witness of the truthfulness of the Church and of the message I'd received. I committed to baptism, and was baptized a few weeks later. It is a decision that has greatly blessed my life. I have met wonderful people and had many wonderful experiences. My testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has grown immensely since joining the Church. I have read the Book of Mormon cover to cover many times and feel the spirit strongly each time I read.

How I live my faith

I serve as the bishop or head of our congregation. It has blessed my life as I have been able to meet and work with people. Especially rewarding for me is being able to work with the youth.
