Hi I'm Bill

I have always believed in God and his son, Jesus Christ. I was introduced to the Church by my future wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Business Manager at a major university. I'm a convert and married to a beautiful woman for the past 10 years. I inherited 5 great children and 5 grandchildren + have added 6 more grandchildren since then. I was raised in a very small Southern Baptist church and baptized at about 10 years old. Didn't know why; just was. It was just something you did at that age in the Baptist church. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ has been a blessing in my life and I would never give this up. The Church is like a hugh family. I'm constanting meeting people that know my church family members. It is really a miracle at times when you're hundreds of miles away from home and see someone you actually know. In this Church, it happens all the time.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife introduced me to the church on our first date. Until then, I did not know any other Mormons. That whole first weekend was spent in singles activities. Since I did not go running away, she must have thought I was okay. I decided to learn more and did receive a testimony that this was the true gospel and that the restored church was back on the earth and that Joseph Smith, Jr, was a true prophet of the Lord. There was nothing pushy about it. Just the facts. I started reading the Book of Mormon and it changed my life, if you really want it and believe with all your heart, mind and soul. What's also great is that this is a church for all times, not just Sunday. You have to really want it. There are activities going on all the time.

How I live my faith

I have had a few callings in the church. Right now, my wife and I serve in the Temple as Ordinance Workers which has really blessed us in our marriage. We have been married for time and all eternity which means we will be together even after death. I'm not perfect by any means, but am constantly working on it.
