Hi I'm willy

I'm a Mormon.who first heard about the church while in prison......

About Me

well as you can see by the opening phrase i've been down different paths.....but now i'm on the right path. i'm 72 years old,have a wonderful and beautiful wife of 34 years,and live in the great and gorgeous pacific northwest on an island...........free and sober. i love to fish,crab,shrimp and go to church............ and the temple.

Why I am a Mormon

as i said to begin with.......i was in prison when i first heard about the church.................i spent most all of the years between the age of 20 and 30 in two different prisons......but the good part was that a year or two before i got out in 1971 a small group of lds men came to prison weekly and told us about the church of jesus christ of latter saints. i only attended these meetings for a short while but the seeds were planted. as i look back one thing that got my attention was the teaching of the three degrees of glory and the many degrees of glory's within these glories it never quite made sense to me when i heard all you have to do was say you believed in jesus christ and you'd go to heaven. so when i heard about the different degrees within the three degrees it made sense and i though maybe there is a place for me if i could only know and believe. well a short time after i got out of prison i had one of those spiritual experiences happen to me that was so over whelming it completely changed my life. that night the holy ghost witnessed to me so powerfully that there was a god and a jesus christ and the church of jesus christ of latter day saints was the church................

How I live my faith

that life changing experience happened almost 40 years ago but its like it happened yesterday..............its been a long journey of tiny little baby steps and i still have far to go but i'm slowly becoming more of the person heavenly father wants me to be. my wife and i co-teach the 11 and 12 year old sunday school class at this time. i've held many positions of trust over the years and its a wonderful thing to be trusted and loved by those around you. i love heavenly father and his son jesus christ and the holy ghost for changing my life....... i believe that if anyone will sit down and read and seriously pray to know if the book of mormon is the word of god or not they will know that it is. its as simple as that........ read the book!!!.........you don't have to talk to anybody, see anybody, or anything like that, just read the book !!! millions have and millions have joined the church of jesus christ of latter saints all over the world..........read the book!!!!!!!!
