Hi I'm Bill Skeehan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a retired aerospace structural engineer. I worked 41 years for Lockheed Martin analyzing, testing and building many different rockets and sattilites. I have been married for 42 years ago. We have 5 children and 11 grandchildren and I live in the San Francisco Bay area in California.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church. None of my siblings are members. My parents are no longer alive. I have been a member for 37 years. I received a testimony of the Book of Mormon after studyng and praying about it. I didn't know I had a testimony after the missionaries had taught me. But when I was asked if I believed in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ I said yes. That was followed by the question did I believe that the Bible was the word of God. I said yes to that also. I was next asked if the Book of Mormon was also the word of God and at that point i suddenly knew that I knew that it was true. The Holy Ghost gave a witness to me. Of course if the Book of Momon is true then Joseph Smith was a Prophet. Because of that witness i know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true Church of Jesus Christ. I have had other witnesses over the years especially as I go to Church and feel of the spirit that is there or when I when I am reading the scriptures or do the other things that God wants us to do. I always feel uplifted and at home when I am with the members of our church.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings but right now I am a husband, father, grandfather, ward mission leader, home teacher, and temple worker. All of these give me the opportunity to find joy in helping people. I love my family and we are all very close because of the beliefs and love that we share.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

 By following his example! We grow closer to Jesus and Heavenly Father by doing what they would like us to do. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Bill Skeehan
It is another witness that Jesus Christ is our savior. It is the story of the ancient people in the Americas and tells of Christ's visit to them also. Show more Show less
