Hi I'm William McCarl

I love my Savior. I love art. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being with my family, because I am the oldest of seven children. I like to sculpt with clay and I also like to do other art projects. I speak English and Spanish and also hope to learn Japanese. I was born in the U.S., but now live in Mexico. I love God and I know He loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, where I learned about Jesus Christ and how He has always spoken to His prophets and through them we can follow the will of God. The day came when I wanted to know if it was true, so I prayed and asked God to help me feel the truth. I received a response through the Holy Ghost as a feeling of peace. Thanks to the response I received, I know that God answers prayers and that I am in the true church of Jesus Christ. But just knowing that the church is His church isn't the only reason why I am Mormon. I'm Mormon because it also helps me to have a happy family. God has made it possible for our families to be together forever, even after death, through marriage in a holy temple of God. Knowing that encourages me to live all the commandments of God.

How I live my faith

I try to be like Jesus and serve everyone I can. I go to church every Sunday, where I participate in the sacrament to renew my covenants. I often sing hymns to help me feel the love of my Savior. And currently I am serving the Lord as a missionary for His church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
