Hi I'm William (Bill)

I grew up in Oklahoma, I am happily married, and I have 8 children, and I'm a Mormon !

About Me

I am a person who loves people and to be around people, that is why I work where I do. Most of all though I am a husband and a Daddy. Daddy is my favorite name. I get warm fuzzys' inside when I am called that.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by an LDS mother and a non-member father who supported my mother in her desire to raise us as such. Membership was not easy task living in an area with not much support. The time came for me to decide to go on a mission for the Church. It was then that I decided to pray and receive my own testimony before I could share it with others. I read the Book of Mormon through. I followed the promise made by the last Prophet in the Book of Mormon. Moroni 10:3-5. ..." I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things and ponder them in your heart... I would exhort you to ask God the Eternal Father if these things are true... and if ye shall ask with sincere heart with real intent... ye may know by the power of the Holy Ghost... and by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the Truth of all things. " I knew then and know now that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church and I testify that to whoever reads this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am a Mormon, most people in my community know that I think. I try and be very Christlike to everyone I meet; at work, at the local schools, and all the local business that I frequent. I am a home teacher in my church. I believe everyone should have someone to connect with at least once a month , to address family concerns, celebrate Birthdays, anniversary's, and family accomplishments. I receive no pay with regards to my Church callings. Even our Bishop receives nothing monetary for his time he spends doing church work. His payment is knowing he is serving his fellow man and by so doing is serving God. This is also the pay I receive, in blessings and helping others. It just feels great.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

William (Bill)
YES It is a wonderful feeling to know that you and your spouse can be together forever with your family. But it does take sacrifice and absolute fidelity. I know that I can be with my family forever and that blessing is extended to all who follow the guidance provided by Jesus Christ and Sealed by his Holy Priesthood.. Show more Show less
