Hi I'm Mike Willmott

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a happily married father of 3. My oldest is our daughter who is 5 this year, then our first son who is turning 3, and finally our newest addition a 3 month old baby boy. My family and work keep me pretty busy, but when not working or spending time with my family I enjoy working out, reading the Scriptures, and reading books about the prophets and the church. I come from a large family of 5 kids and all of us fell away from the church for a little bit. Although not all of us have returned, I'm confident that as I returned so will they in the near future.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe in what the Church teachs. I believe in the Book of Mormon and that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore the gospel in these latter days. It just makes sense to me. It is so exciting to think of being with my wife and children for time AND all enternity. Who wouldn't want that? My learning and praying about these things everyone can know they are true.

How I live my faith

My family and I attend church every Sunday. Occasionaly I have to work on a Sunday and miss out on enjoying the feeling of the spirit that is ever present at church. My wife and I both have callings in the church. I am fortunate enough to work with the Bishopric (leaders of the local church), while my wife works with the Woman of the church. Each day we have family prayer and study the scriptures together. Although our children are quite young they love hearing about the stories of Jesus Christ, his Prophets, and other Bible and Book of Mormon stories. Family Home Evening has also become an important part of our lives. Once a week (usually Monday nights) our family ensures that we have nothing else planned. Family Home Evening is a designated night for family activities. Our family always starts this with a song and prayer inviting us to have the spirit with us, and that we will all enjoy our time together. We then have a brief spiritual message where we try and teach the children something about Christ. We then end with a closing prayer and a family activity or game (the kids like to get outside and play tag or soccer).

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Mike Willmott
Although we believe that Joseph Smith was a great and amazing man, we do not worship him. We only worship God the Father, and his Son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Mike Willmott
One of the greatest things about the Gospel and our faith is the fact that through the Priesthood (God's power) families can be together forever, and not just until "death to us part". When we are sealed in the Temple the sealing done for "Time and All Eternity", meaning for this life and for after this life. We are sealed to our spouses, children that we currently have, and all future children we may have. Once sealed you must still live a righteous life in order to ensure that your family stays together in the next life. What an amazing feeling it is to know that I can be together forever with my family now that I am sealed to them. The joy that they bring to me in this life, I will be able to feel forever if I am righteous and keep the Lord's commandments. Show more Show less

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Mike Willmott
President Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet in the world today. He was called of God and guides and directs the Lords church here on earth at this time. We are fortunate enough to have a living prophet on the earth at this time, as this was not always the case. We are also very fortunate to be able to hear the prophet speak every 6 months at General Conference. Show more Show less
