Hi I'm Billy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a native of El Paso, Texas and have lived here for the past 25 years. The only other place I've lived is in the state of Colorado for the two years I served my mission. I love the outdoors, but not as much as I love my wife, Mandy, and spending time with her (whether in the outdoors or not). All of my formal education has been from public schools in El Paso where I had the opportunity to do many things. In the 5th grade I heard the cello for the very first time and I've loved playing it ever since. I played two years with the UTEP symphony and recently had private lessons with a very well know cellist. I love rock climbing, triathlons, and working with scouts. Right before my 18th birthday I was fortunate enough to earn the rank of Eagle. I've done scouts ever since. I'm currently involved with troop 258 of the 12th ward. I love working with the youth. Especially the youth of the 12th ward, they are amazing. I am currently taking classes at the University of Texas at El Paso in the hopes of completing my undergraduate in Biology.

Why I am a Mormon

Abraham Lincoln was quoted as saying: "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong." That pretty much sums it up! I have received a spiritual confirmation and believe believe Joseph Smith when he said "I had seen a vision; I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it; at least I knew that by so doing I would offend God, and come under condemnation."

How I live my faith

GO to church!! I don't like to toot my own horn so that is all I shall say for now :D
