Hi I'm Billy Jack

Grew up in Centerville, Ut. Love to backpack, fish, and basically anything else outdoors. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a simple average guy that loves to be outside. I graduated high school and am now serving a full time mission in PA. My family is comprised of my mom and dad and one younger brother. My parents are divorced so that can be a struggle sometimes but hey that's life. I am an amateur photographer but am getting better. One of my favorite things to do is to go up in the mountains and just take in God's creations. I love listening to the sounds of the forest and knowing that it didn't just happen but that our loving Heavenly Father made it for our enjoyment.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and have been active all my life but I came to the realization that I wanted to be Mormon after my parents got divorced. I had seen kids change for the worse and for the better from this kind of thing and I wanted to be one that was for the better and I think that I did that. I woke up each morning and decided that it was going to be a good day and the rest is history. The whole reason why I was happy was that I knew that I wasn't alone in this endeavor, I had my older brother and Savior, Jesus Christ, looking out for me. I know that He did in fact help me in getting through this but also my family was amazing through this. My mother, brother, and myself became very close and that is why God has given us families, so we can have someone to turn to and hold to in times of trial.

How I live my faith

Like I said I am currently serving a mission for the church in PA. It's a great opportunity to strengthen my testimony and also share the gospel with those who are looking for it. I spend a lot of time studying the scriptures both the Bible and the Book of Mormon and then ponder and think about what I have read and how it can apply to me. It's awesome to look at how a story from over two thousand years ago can apply to us in this modern age.
