Hi I'm Will

I grew up in Delaware. I am raising four kids with my wonderful wife. I'm a pediatrician and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for 8 years. I have four children who keep my wife and me busy. I love the outdoors. I think I can cook and love it when the boys say "that was the best dinner ever Dad" and all it took was mac and cheese! One day I hope to get back to Portugal and Cape Verde to be able to serve a medical mission with my wife. 

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and my parents' parents and their parents are all members of the church, so naturally I am too. But being a member is more to me than just family tradition. The gospel is the foundation I have built my life upon. It keeps me grounded and reminds me who I am and why I am here. It helps me to be the best person my Heavenly Father wants me to be.

How I live my faith

Every day I try to be the best I can. Leave out the gossip, do something nice for someone and be sure to let my family know how much I love them.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom is a set of guidelines given to the Prophet Joseph Smith. They help to ensure that our minds and bodies are free from unwanted pollutants that can damage ourselves both spiritually and physically. Show more Show less
