Hi I'm Will Long

I live in North Carolina, I love the ocean. I skateboard, skim, surf, and play the guitar, I love life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served a mission in Indiana for 2 years. i live in North Carolina, probably the best state there is, and even better is that i live about 10 minutes from the ocean. i love the ocean and most things that have to do with it. i love to skimboard and surf and go fishing. i love skateboarding and the satisfaction that comes with landing every trick, and i play the guitar because it sooths me and i love the sound that comes with it. i have had my ups and downs and i really recognize now what is really important in life. i have the sweetest family there is and i love them all, brothers and sisters and parents, every single one of them.

Why I am a Mormon

i am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints beacause i now know that it is true, because God has answered my prayer through the holy ghost. i have seen life doing bad things and i have seen life doing good things and keeping the commandments. i can tell you from experience that doing what God wants is way better than any of that crap that the world puts out. i am a mormon because i have studied the scriptures and especially the Book of Mormon to know if it is true and now i know for myself without a doubt it is! i grew up in the church but everyone has to have their own conversion in order to know Jesus Christ and all of his teachings and truths in their fulness today. i continue to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ because i know the happiness and the joy that comes with it, that will come every single time with keeping the commandments. living the commandments is not restricting in any way. i still have a bunch of fun, i get to skate everyday and have a blast with my friends. true lasting fun comes from God and can't come from anywhere else. i skim everyday of the summer and chill out and do crazy things, and dream big! With God everything becomes possible and nothing can stand in your way. So have faith in Jesus Christ and pray about the Book of Mormon and ask God for yourself if its true. i promise you will get an answer, it happened for me and i have seen it change peoples lives! you can receive an answer from God to know it is true! if you have ever wondered who you are, who you really are, then learn about the church and ask God who you are. you will feel his love, if only you just ask for it. So do it!

How I live my faith

I just got done serving the Lord by serving a 2 year full time mission! i have loved everything about the Church of Jesus Christ because it shows me how much God actually cares about everyone of his children. being a missionary i was able to see a bunch of different people in a ton of different situations from people having everything to people having nothing, and i have seen the restored Gospel change so many lives that without a doubt God know each one of us indivudually in every aspect of who we are.
