Hi I'm Reed Williams

I am an avid runner, a husband and father of two beautiful daughters. I love Gospel of Jesus Christ and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a financial analyst for a large automotive company. I have a lovely wife, two lovely daughters, two son in laws and three wonderful grand kids with two more on the way. I love to run (albeit slowly) I love to study the gospel. I served a mission for my church to Hong Kong and grew to love the good people of Hong Kong China. I also worked in China for three years for my company. I have run 7 marathons and enjoy the challenge of preparing for the race.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon my whole life and I have grown in the gospel as I have to served the Lord throughout my life. I still remember the first time that I came to know that this church was true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and that he did indeed see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ in the sacred grove. I was a young man 13 years old and I had set a goal to read the Pearl of Great Price one of the standard works of our church and I can remember as I read Joseph Smith's account of the first vision shared in that book of scripture how the spirit bore a powerful witness to my soul that it was true and that God still spoke to men in our day. I was so overcome with the feeling of the spirit that I wept and was grateful to a loving Father in Heaven that cared enough about me to answer my prayers and to help me know his truths. The gospel has brought great comfort to me in my life as God's Plan of salvation has helped me to deal with the death of my Dad when I was three years old and then the death of my mother when I was 25. As difficult as those times were there was that peace that Paul talks of that passes understanding that comforted my soul. Though we were separated in this life I knew that because mom and dad had been sealed in the temple that we would be together again as a family If I would live my life so that I am worthy. I don't know how people make it through the challenging times that we face today with out a knowledge of God's great Plan of Salvation.

How I live my faith

I love to serve in the church. We currently serve in the temple once each week and I serve as lay leader speaking to various congregations in our area and working with leaders at the congregation level to help them with any challenges they may have. I served a mission when i was 19 to Hong Kong China and I developed a deep love for the people of China. I find great joy in striving to help other people in what ever small way I can. I love to talk about my faith and how my testimony of Jesus Christ and blessed me through out my life.
