Hi I'm William Journee

I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana and became a member on March 6, 1983. I'm a Mormon and am proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I am father to 5 children and half of them are Mormons. I have had a very interesting life. I have been a member for 29 years and they have been the very best years of my life. As a member I am as happy as I have ever been. Being able to change my life and live the gospel is the best thing I ever could have done and it has brought much happiness to me and my family. I just wish that I had made that desicion much sooner in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the true Church on the Earth. I searched for many years for the true Church and finally found it and I am so very glad that I did. The Church and living the gospel has made such a wonderful change in my life. I hate to think of what my life would be like if I had not found the Church.

How I live my faith

I live the gospel and all of the teaching of the Church and it has made a wonderful change in my life. I follow what the Prophet tells us and it always proves to be the right thing to do.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

William Journee
I am always asked how do I know that this Church is true and I always answer that because I live the principles and find so much happiness in my life that I know that the Church is true beyond a shadow of a doubt. Show more Show less

I have a Temple recommmend and go to the Temple often and encourage my family to do likewise. There we receive many blessings that we could never receive any place else. There is nothing secret there but it is very sacret. I love the Temple. Show more Show less
