Hi I'm Will

I paint, I play soccer, i'm a freestyle skier and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a younger brother, an older brother and a son. I love to play soccer as much as possible, I love to paint anything and everything and I ski as often as possible. right now I am a missionary and love every minute of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church because I grew up in the church and was able to learn about it through awesome parents. I am still a member of the church, because through certain events in my life I have been able to come to a very real knowledge that it is true. I have seen the effects of the true influence of the attonement of jesus christ in my life and I know that I couldnt have had that without baptism. sometimes I wonder where I would be if I hadnt grown up the way I did with the parents and family that I had and the support that they gave me even when I didnt do exactly as they said. the answer is I HAVE NO CLUE and I DONT CARE because im HERE and I LOVE IT

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to show people my faith by the way I act. I havent always been the best at it but I try, and I get better and better every day. right now I am a missionary for the church in california. I get to go around and share the gospel with everyone that I see and hopefully make a good impression on someones day, or life. Right now it seems that the focus is teaching but the outcome is often learning from the people that you would least expect it.. I love it. And thats how i live it.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

The church of Jesus Christ is built on Prophets and Apostles. After Jesus Christ was crucified and Judas commited suicide the Apostles (still leading the church under God) chose another Apostle named Matthias to replace him. We simply follow that same order. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

The same reason Jesus Christ gave to john the baptist when he asked him why he came to him for baptism, being perfect already.... "thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness" baptism is required to return to our heavenly father and live in his presence. It would be unfair if people that did not recieve the option to be baptized while on the earth were just cast out.... God has given us the oppertunity to give all people the opportunity to CHOOSE to accept baptism. Once the baptism is done by proxy the deceased person does not have to accept, but they now have the option. Show more Show less
