Hi I'm Wilson

I'm a Mormon. I live in broomfield and have lived in the suburbs north of Denver for most of my life. I have great friends here.

About Me

I was very fortunate to marry my childhood sweetheart. She is a wonderful, gifted and talented woman in many areas. One talent of hers that I enjoy on a daily basis; She is a terrific cook! I own a construction business and have performed work in most cities all around the Denver front range. I've known and have worked for many of my clients for over 20 years. Together my wife and I enjoy outdoor recreation and sharing our musical talents in a business we manage together. I teach drum lessons and she teaches piano and we have teachers who teach other instruments as well. Being able to teach music lessons is a rewarding experience, especially when we see it bring joy and happiness into our students lives. We also enjoy serving in our church congregation and for a night out we relax at a dinner and watch a good movie.

Why I am a Mormon

From my earliest recollection my parents taught me about the Savior Jesus Christ and the importance of His life and example. They taught me to read the scriptures and trust in and have faith in the Savior and His atoning sacrifice. My parents also lived the gospel principles that they taught, and how I thank them for that as I think back on my formative years. I was taught the story of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, His son, appearing to a young Joseph Smith and the resulting restoration of the Lord's gospel back to the earth. When I grew into my older teenage years I don't think I could comprehend this restoration story, and still being young, didn't know why it would even matter. As I result I didn't attend church for several years but spent time working on vehicles, hobbies and pursuing activities I thought would bring happiness. What I found in the world was that the hoped for excitement was either non-existent or short lived and pretentious. It was then that I began to remember the teachings of my parents. With the help of my parents and others who never gave up on me, I corrected things that were amiss in my life. I prayed to Heavenly Father and thanked Him for His love and the blessings in my life and asked that His spirit might direct me through each day. What happened next I couldn't deny; I found out in a very personal way that Heavenly Father loves me, He knows me and that He does hear and answer my prayers. I felt the spirit of God conveying to me that I needed to share what I'd been given with others. Although I was older than most Mormon missionaries, I served a church mission in California and shared my understanding of the Lord's love with people I knew had been prepared to receive that message, from me. There is no better feeling than sharing your knowledge of God's love with someone else and seeing for yourself miraculous things occur that change their life and yours. I am a Mormon because of God's love and His peace.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ brings with it a call to serve. For me, serving has brought a further understanding of God's love. Some of the most treasured experiences of my life have been when I have helped someone or I've been helped by someone, and a wonderful relationship has developed. Another way that I live my faith is by to studying and learning about Jesus Christ, His teachings, His example and His atoning sacrifice. I strive to follow the spirit and do what I feel directed to do. I have been called to serve in many different positions in the congregations we've lived in. I have taught Sunday School classes, worked in scouts, and have served in administrative callings. Each has stretched me beyond what I alone could do and has caused me to trust more in the Savior Jesus Christ. One of my most favorite callings was serving with my wife in a young single adult ward, working with 18-30 year old singles. The times we now live in are challenging for all people, but especially so for young people trying to get their education, start their working lives, dating, socializing and getting married, and doing this in an increasingly more secular world where their beliefs are often under assault. My wife and I literally witnessed hundreds of miracles in the lives of these young people as they followed the Savior's teachings and their lives have been blessed in so many ways. I've had great blessings throughout my life and I share what I have learned. I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ
