Hi I'm Willard

I am a retired teacher. I have have 6 children & 15 grandchildren. I love life & helping others. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised on a small cotton farm in Arizona. In high school I loved and excelled in the FFA. I became an agriculture teacher and later taught science and driver's education. I retired 10 years ago. We have used 2 1/2 years of our retirement to serve missions for the church. The first was at UCLA and the 2nd on a church cattle ranch in Florida. All of our children and grandchildren live within 30 minutes so we have many great family activities! I just love people and being able to help others. Service always brings me joy and helps me feel my Savior's love!

Why I am a Mormon

I love how God has created such a wonderful plan of happiness for us! Through Jesus Christ He created this beautiful earth. As His spirit children we have been placed here in mortality to gain a physical body and to have a time of testing. Our challenge is to learn and follow the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. As we follow Him, we develop faith and learn to love and trust him in everything. I know he lives! I know he loves me! Through His grace and tender mercies He will make up the difference for my mistakes and failures. He also carries my burdens in time of trouble. I know he will do that for everyone. I have seen His loving kindness help me, members of my family and countless others as they turn to Him. I invite you to bring all your faith and love for Christ. This church will not take any of that away but will simply add increased knowledge and understanding of Gods perfect plan of happiness. Jesus Christ is central to that plan and His love, grace and mercy can overcome all and bring us back to Him

How I live my faith

I love living my faith! It makes me happy and gives me peace! Through gospel study and prayer I draw closer to God. I am free from addictions or habits that would enslave me. I "shepherd" over 200 young adults ages 18-30. I know that Christ reaches out to each person in times of illness, temptation, trouble or concern. I have seen Him preform miracles to change lives and bring happiness! I know he lives, loves me, and is my Savior! I love Him and do all I can to follow his teachings. At my best, I will still fall short. I know the love, grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ will make up the difference and bring me back to Him.

In whom should we have faith?

Willard
Our faith must begin with and always be based upon the Lord Jesus Christ! There is no other name whereby we can be saved. Faith is the first step towards learning about him and his gospel. Faith over time builds understanding and trust in Him! We invite you to bring all your faith and love for Him. This church will simply add to your understanding and faith. Show more Show less
