Hi I'm Bill

I love my morning jogs and can sometimes fit all 5 kids in the jogging stroller. Captive audience! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a dad and husband. I love coming home to hugs and a rundown of the days events from each of the kids. My wife works as hard as I do if not harder running her own business and being a full-time mom.

Why I am a Mormon

A quote that resonates with me: ""You are not a human being having a spiritual experience; you are a spiritual being having a mortal experience." We lived with God our Father and His son Jesus Christ before coming to this earth. This belief is part of the foundation of my faith. We lived with them, we loved them, and we all made choices that eventually led us here to gain a mortal body and work out our individual salvation by following Jesus Christ. I don’t claim any special remembrance of a pre-earth life, but as I read the scriptures and take time to contemplate my purpose in life, I know that I chose to follow Jesus Christ long ago. Having kids of my own I can relate to a Heavenly Father who creates trials and challenges for us so that we can grow. I expect my kids to learn and do hard things so they can be strong. I believe our Heavenly Father expects the same of us. While I appreciate the truth and good that comes from all faiths that teach about Christ, I know for myself that God has a prophet on the earth today and that he continues to speak to men. I also know that Bible is one witness of Jesus Christ, and that the Book of Mormon is another. There is no other way for us to return to live with our Heavenly Father except by following and living the teachings of Jesus Christ and accepting Him as our Savior and Redeemer.

How I live my faith

I really enjoy helping the youth in my neighborhood--especially the Boy Scouts. There is a true reward when you watch a young man or woman make a good choice that affects the rest of their life in a positive way. I’m not a Scoutmaster, but instead I serve as a member in our local church leadership. I help oversee our boys and girls youth program and Boy Scout unit.
