Hi I'm Chris Wilson

I grew up in North Carolina. I went to Peru on a mission for my church. I'm a Mormon. I am a student of any truth.

About Me

I am a grandfather. I live near the beach and I surf. I try to make my garden survive. I chase squirrels out of my bird feeder. I speak Spanish and I am dabbling with Portuguese and Italian. I love talking to people about what they do and enjoy. I love space, planets, stars, light and I enjoy hearing what knowledgeable people have to say about that. I want to know what you know.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I put a promise to the test that is recorded in the Book of Mormon. The promise says ' ask God the Eternal Father if these things( The Book of Mormon) are not true and if ye shall ask with real intent , having faith in Christ, He (God) will make it known to you by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things'. It was revealed to me that The Book of Mormon is true. I also asked if Joseph Smith is a prophet and that also was revealed to me by the Holy Ghost that he is. Other truths , such as how families can be an eternal unit and how a knowledge of Christ can help us thrive in any environment are an anchor to my life.

How I live my faith

I visit seven families a month in my church to see how they are doing. I share a message with them about Christ or how to draw closer to Christ. I help with community improvement projects. Recently we helped plant trees to beautify a park.
