Hi I'm william pennington

i paintball, play soccer,family means everything to me, i am an adrenaline junky,love to cook and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

was up my name is william, littel bit about me.. i love sports . will do anything for adrenaline. i love to make people laugh. i usualy am joking around.. you know you cant take life to serious you will never get out alive.

Why I am a Mormon

the peace that comes from living this gospel and applying the atonement of jesus christ to my life would be the reason why i love this church. i was born into the church when i was younger but due to some situations i turned away from the church and didnt due what i was suppose to . in a sence you can say i lived the way of the world and not the way of christ. to not get into to much detail. i was unhappy and everychoice that i made to try to get happier . just brought me down and down . it wasnt until i was about to make a huge descicion in my life that would have defined my life, that my dad said i need to pray and ask for guidence i did and for the first time in a long time i felt the peace and warmth of the holy ghost . from that point i have never looked back.. like i said earlier this gospel filled the hole in my life and brought actually happyness to my life . not the fake happyness the world gives but the happyness that consumes your life and makes you into a better person .

How I live my faith

how do i live my religion well at the moment i am serving a two year mission in the great state of texas. the mission that i am servign in is the texas lubbock mission. and i get the great oppurtunity to go around the community and testify of my lord and savior jesus christ and his atoning sacrifice. i get to share the history of the church, and how the heavens were opened again to the prophet joseph smith . i get to testify of the preisthood of god beign restored on the earth again . and how his church ( the same church that jesus set up in the new testament ) is restored to the earth and how it is for everyone, of every race and of every age. . i love the gospel and i love the ability to serve my savior and assist in his work. but most of all i love the lord jesus christ

Who was Joseph Smith?

william pennington
joseph smith was a younge man in the early 1800's and he was confused about why there was so many churches so he took his question to the bible . as he was raised to read the bible he knew the bible could answer his question. he was one day reading in the episle of james chapter 1 verse 5 and he read ..." if any of you lack wisdom, let him as of god". so he dicided that the only way to find out which church was correct and which church he should join, was to ask god like james directed. so that is what he did he asked god . adn the answer he got is nothing short of a miricle . just as moses of old he was appeared to by god the father and the son. and was told that none of the churches were true and to join none of them. but that throught joseph smith , god would restore his original church. joseph was then called as a prophet and over time was given the priesthood (authority) of god .
