Hi I'm Bill

I'm a Mormon computer nerd.

About Me

I work as a computer administrator. I'm currently studying to to be a network administrator. I started college right after high school, but could not settle on an academic path for years. After some time off which allowed me to help my wife get through school, i've found my passion. Although i'm almost always the oldest person in my college classes, i know i'm where i need to be. Along the way to discovering the right career, my wife and i have added two little boys to our family. Sometimes people ask how i can work, go to school, and support my family. All i can say is that it's easy when you trust the Lord and your spouse to help carry the burdens of this mortal life.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the deep south meant there were lots of opportunities to explore many churches and other religions. Although raised Catholic, i always felt something was missing. Through my exploration of religion and science, i found that all religions i explored felt sorely disconnected from science. When introduced to the LDS church, i was told it was different than all others by virtue of the truths which have been restored to the earth through the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ in all its fullness and glory. I was promised that as i studied this restored and full gospel, everything i knew to be true would coalesce into a perfectly harmonious understanding of God, religion, and science. It turns out that all of this is true. The more i read from the scriptures, the more i know that God created this universe of which we are aware and gave us rules by which we could come to understand nature.

How I live my faith

Knowing the gospel of Jesus Christ is true is enough for me to live that gospel faithfully. In the last seven years as a member of the church, i've been asked to do many things to help other members. The greatest thing i've been asked to do is to teach the youth of our church. I've been working with thirteen through sixteen year old boys for less than a year. I'm heavily involved in the boy scouts as well. It is very rewarding to watch these boys learn and grow and to help them do so. I am amazed at the kindness and love they are capable of showing others. Although i have been asked to mentor them, i often find myself learning from them.
