Hi I'm Wade Lillywhite

I'm a father of four, a grandfather of two. I have traveled widely and studied many belief systems. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have four wonderful daughters, and two grandsons. I love to spend time with them and find joy in watching their development. I love books and reading, and have a library of over 5000 volumes. One of my favorite things in the world is to give away a book to someone who will really appreciate it. I enjoy sports, especially track and field, and am a former US champion power lifter.

Why I am a Mormon

Through previous employment, I have had an opportunity to travel the world and observe many cultures and belief systems. In so doing, I have come to admire the faiths of others and have found in these religions many parallels to correct principles found in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a large collection of the scriptures and commentaries of both Christian and non-Christian religions and have enjoyed reading and studying them. These have strengthened my testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is of divine origin. This testimony has been greatly strengthened and deepened by my own personal spiritual experiences. As I have applied the blessings of the atonement in my own life, I have come to know that the Savior is very real. He knows and loves all of us and wishes only for our success and happiness in this life and in the life to come. I have found that Church to be completely satisfying on both spiritual and intellectual levels.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good neighbor and friend, and by endeavoring to be, "an example of the believers." (1 Tim 4:12) I enjoy serving in Church callings and try to be always willing to accept what comes my way. In recent years, I have had an opportunity to serve with the Young Single Adults (ages 18 to 30). I have gained a greater appreciation of the struggles they encounter in their lives and thoroughly enjoy associating with and counseling them.
