Hi I'm Will

I love the outdoors, hiking, backpacking and rock climbing are my favorite. I have a great family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am father of two beautiful girls and married to an amazing wife. My family is the most important thing to me. I love spending time with them and watching my girls grow. I like to take my family hiking, to the park, and other things that don't cost a lot of money. We find that we can have a great time as long we are doing things together. I graduated from college in engineering, but now work in sales. I find that I like to interact with people and like the flexibility that the job brings me. I have an entrepreneurial bone or two and always have an idea for the next thing that will go big. The problem is, most of the time, someone else has already thought of that idea. I love the process of creating, that is why I also enjoy cooking and taking on those home improvement projects that my wife always dreams of. I like to call myself the redneck carpenter, because I can get by on very few tools and still built things that come out looking pretty good. For instance, I built a great entertainment center with only a hand saw and nail gun. Projects that I take on never come out quite as well as I think in the beginning. I suffer from having big visions and skills that just don't match up.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to grow up in a Mormon home. My parents were divorced at young age and Mom remarried the only man I call Dad. They worked hard to make us a real family, and achieved just that. It was the importance of the family that motivated them to make my family growing up strong. Without the gospel in our lives and the reality of the eternal families, my family would not have had the strength or stability to overcome the challenges we faced. The values taught and perspective given on our lives here on earth bring me great peace and incentive to live righteously and teach those gospel principles to my family.

How I live my faith

It is important to me to live what I believe, and live it for the right reason. It just isn't enough to believe, or follow a set of rules or values. You have to do so with the right heart, or you will never really change or become better. I work with the youth of the church. I teach the 10 year olds every Sunday and then once a week I meet with the Cub Scouts as their leader. I love working with the kids and find that they teach me so much in the way to live. Each day I try to be honest with myself and others. By living the principles of the gospel, loving God and loving my neighbor, I try to be an example to those around me, especially my family. I am not always perfect and often have many things on my need to improve list, but that is where my faith in Christ leads me to be better and gives me opportunities to become more like him.
