Hi I'm Bill Woodward

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 4 great kids and a great wife. The time I have with my family is some of the greatest times in my life. I enjoy camping in the mountains and fishing with my family. I also work in customer service with a major airline and enjoy the benefits that come with this job. People always ask me why I am so happy; it is because of my family and my belief in God’s plan of happiness and serving others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the great examples of my father and mother, and their testimonies of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Growing up in the church as a Mormon I took for granted the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As I approached my 18th birthday I decided to take an example I learned out of The Book of Mormon of a Prophet named Enos and go to the mountains and pray. I did know that God was real from childhood, but I wanted to know that God knew me. That day I received a witness from The Holy Ghost that God had a plan for my life and that the Book of Mormon was a second witness of Christ and is true. Since this time I have had time to serve in several callings in the church, and I have come to appreciate God’s great love for me, my family, and the great possibilities of having a family forever in Gods plan of happiness.

How I live my faith

I have had lots of opportunities to serve in church through Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, other youth activities, and other church callings in serving my brothers and sisters. Through this service I have found great joy in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have also helped in an Employee Assistance Program at work which has brought me closer to my fellow workers. I have learned a great deal from their great examples and desire to help serve our community. It is probably the greatest reward in my life to see my 3 sons and my daughter and great wife serving others and their great examples in our community and around the world in Guatemala, Mexico, and Chuuk Island.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

By following Christ’s example of loving one another and studying the scriptures about Him we will increase our faith in Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
