Hi I'm Will Jenks

I was born and raised in California but our family recently moved to Austin, Texas for better schools for our kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I thought it would be difficult for my family moving to Austin where we had no friends or family, but one of the great things about the LDS church is no matter where you go in the world you find folks that have the same beliefs as you and it's kind of like having an instant family and friend network. I used to be a thrill seeker, but now that I'm in my mid 40's my energy is spent on my 5 children. They are my greatest blessing.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, so I was raised going to a Mormon church. But as everyone must do on their own, I realized that the doctrines I was learning in church were true. In my teens and early 20's I "tested" various principles of the gospel to determine if they were true. As I followed those principles and prayed about them, I came to realized they were true. As I continue to apply those doctrines in my life I feel blessed and confident in my decisions.

How I live my faith

I've served in the church for many years helping out in the youth programs, children's programs and in the scouting programs.
