Hi I'm William

I love running and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Utah, in a very happy Mormon family. I love Utah and everything about it. I love the mountains, I love the snow and I love animals. When I go on a hike or a drive through the mountains it allows me to relax and let go of daily cares. Another thing that I love to do is go running. Running is just like hiking, it allows me to relax and let go of stress and tension. Since I graduated High school I have gone to Taiwan as a missionary. And I have loved every moment about being a missionary. Of course it can be hard at times, but I have learned so much through my service as a missionary. I feel closer to God then I ever have before, I feel him helping and strengthening me daily. Coming on a mission I have come to love the people in Taiwan.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know that this church is true. As I have gone through my life I have seen the blessings that the gospel has given my family. I have seen that through the atonement of Jesus Christ I have the power to change and live better everyday. I know that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith truly is a prophet of God. I know that we truly have a loving Father in Heaven. I invite everyone everywhere to come and see, to test the Book of Mormon and you will find that it is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through following the council of church leaders. I am willing to strive and do what is needed to help others or myself. I don't just settle for the way that I am now, I strive to change to repent and be a little bit better then I was yesterday. Through the faith that I have in the Jesus Christ I am now serving a mission in Taiwan. I go out everyday and work hard, I try to bless the lives of the people that I meet. During the time I have spent as a missionary, I have seen many people find the joy of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As I keep going through life I will continue to trust God and Jesus Christ. Trusting God is how I live my faith.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

William
Well the fist step to get to Know your Father is Heaven is to pray, if we want to know someone, have a better relationship with them then we need to talk to them. Prayer allows us to talk with Heavenly Father. Another way to get to know Heavenly Father would be to read the Scriptures, and come to church. These 2 things let us get to know how much He loves us, we can also learn about the relationship that we have with him. In life we will not see our Father in Heaven, but he has provided a way that we can receive direction from him and this is through the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost can and will give us direction in life. As well as he testifies of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

William
It was written by ancient prophets on the American continent. Many of the prophets that wrote in the Book of Mormon are Alma, Nephi, Mormon. Many people think that Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon, but he was just called to translate it to English. He was called to bring this testament of Jesus Christ to the world.

What is faith?

William
"faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." Alma 32:21(The Book of Mormon) As we can see in this scripture faith is a hope in something, that we cannot see but is true. So usually in the church we talk about faith in Jesus Christ. We have a hope in him, a hope that through our faith we can return to Heaven and live with our Heavenly Father. We can develop faith in Jesus Christ through Sincere pray, through diligent Scripture study,through faithfully attending church and obeying the commandments that Heavenly Father has given us.

What is the Book of Mormon?

William
The Book of Mormon is another book of scripture that testifies of Jesus Christ. It is a partner to The Bible, these 2 books of scripture let us learn more about God, His Son Jesus Christ, and why this knowledge is so important to each of us. The Book of Mormon is indeed the word of God, and it truly testifies of Jesus Christ. Give it a try, I know that what it teaches along with the Bible will bless your life. I know this because it has truly blessed my life. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

William
We believe that one principle of Eternal life is eternal progression, this life is to prepare for eternal life. Depending on what we do in life will determine where we go in the next life(eternal life). Those who obey the commandments and live the teachings God has given us will get to return to his pressence, and live with him eternally. Those who do not live up to these standards will still have eternal life, but they will not have the opportunity to live in the presence of God. We hope that everyone will come and enjoy the blessings that this gospel. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

William
Yes we do believe in Christ. We read and study the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon, because they are the word of God and they teach us about his son Jesus Christ. We also believe that Jesus Christ leads his church today (Through his called servents the prophets). The prophet of our day is Thomas S. Monson. I personaly love the atonment, because I can change and become a better person. I testify that the atonment is real, I testify that Christ lives and loves each and everyone of us. This knowlege of Christ has blessed my life in so many ways. Come and see, you wont regret it. Show more Show less
