Hi I'm Will

I'm from Oregon, Utah, and Texas. I'm a husband, a dad, and a geek. I program websites and computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a lovely wife and 4 crazy kids who keep me very busy. I enjoy many geeky things including building my own computers, writing cool software, and playing games. I also enjoy reading and watching science fiction and fantasy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon and grew up with the great values and principles of the LDS faith. I fell away from the church during my teen years and always felt that something important was missing from my life. One day I was having a particularly tough time and I got down on my knees and prayed to God that he would help me figure out what was wrong with my life. The answer I received was as clear as a bright sunlit day: I needed to get involved in the church and in reading scriptures and praying daily. I chose to do those things and now many of the problems in my life that seemed so terrible have either been solved or are much easier to deal with than I thought they would be. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints is the true church and that our prayers receive answers.

How I live my faith

I have the great privilege of working with the young men in our church and being involved in the Boy Scout program as well. I have two boys in that age range and I get to attend their class at church and their activities weekly as well as go camping with the scouts from time to time. I'm also a home teacher and have the opportunity to visit the homes of two member families each month and teach them a brief gospel lesson and help them with anything they may need. In the past I have served as a teacher of the adult men's class on Sundays and as a clerk keeping our ward membership records up to date. There are always opportunities to help others in and out of our faith and I am happy to have them.
