Hi I'm Will

I'm a father of three adorable, energetic children. I'm a physician, providing medical care for children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have three adorable children and a wonderful wife. Being a father has its challenges, but I love being a father more than anything in the world. No matter how difficult a day I've had, a running hug from any one of my children never fails to being a smile to my face. Knowing that the family is central to the plan our Father in Heaven has for each of us has made me a better father and enriched the experience of rasing little ones. I have moved a lot during my years of medical training. We have lived as a family in Utah, Chicago, Arizona, and Colorado. No matter where we live, the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Church of Jesus Christ are the same. Wonderful people within our faith are found every where we go.

Why I am a Mormon

There are three fundamental questions that many people ask themselves during life. 1- Where did I come from? 2- What is the purpose of life? 3- What happens after I die? These three questions are answered in the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is found, taught, and lived in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Life has many challenges for everyone. Many of these challenges we share in common. Some are unique to each of us. As I have faced challenges, I have found strength, perspective, and answers in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Most people want happiness and turn to many things in search for it. I know that true, lasting happiness is found in knowing the plan God has for us, his children.

How I live my faith

I have taught Sunday school to nearly every age group, from 18 month-3 year olds, 8-9 year olds, 16-18 year olds, and adults young and old. I love yearning minds, curiosity, and the quest for answers. I don't pretend to have all the answers, but I love the journey of seeking and receiving answers. I love the process of learning and improving one's self. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the program is not about putting information in your brain. The plan is about changing your heart. Each of us can always find ways to improve ourselves and follow the example of Jesus Christ. As I have reached out beyond myself to serve those in need and in the communities in which I have lived, I found joy and satisfaction that simply never comes by being concerned only with myself.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

People who have labeled Mormonism as a "cult," simply do not have a correct understanding of our faith or who we are. The word "cult" is often intentionally used with it's negative connotation, because that person has misunderstood our faith. If someone were to read anything out there that is written or found on the internet about Mormons, they could find all sorts of false information and misconceptions that could make them beleive that we are a "cult." Go to a legitimate source. If you are reading this, you came to a legitimate source. Look on the official websites, Mormon.org or LDS.org. Ask a Mormon what Mormon's believe, not someone of another faith. Most importantly, go to the ultimate source of truth, God. I know we can ask God in prayer and that he can reveal truth to us. We believe in God our Father, and in his divine Son, Jesus Christ. God has a plan for all of us. We are His Children. He want us to be happy. He can show you how. Show more Show less
