Hi I'm Walt

I grew up in the mid-western United States. I am an artist. I'm into technology. I work at a call center. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 42 years old. I decided to go back to college and get my degree in information technology so that I might be able to find a better job. I currently work at a call center. I am single and I attend local adult singles activities such as church dances and other outings held in my community. I love art and I love old cars so I combined the two things by painting canvases of classic cars and I have attended some local car and art shows with my paintings for sale.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was approached my two missionaries who knocked on my door one evening and they asked me if I would be willing to listen to a message about Jesus Christ. I let them come into my house and they sparked my interest by answering some questions that I had about our existence that made me invite them back so that I could learn more. The rest is history. I learned about the true prophet of God, Joseph Smith and I gained a testimony of the truthfulness of of the Book of Mormon as another testament of our lord and savior Jesus the Christ, I was baptized and I began to faithfully attend my weekly church meetings.

How I live my faith

I participate in my church by serving as a ward missionary. As a ward missionary I attend meetings with other ward missionaries and we discuss how we can help others in our area. Sometimes me and another male missionary will visit other area members and non members and ask them if there is anything we can do for them. Sometime we teach new members lessons about gospel principals. Sometimes we are asked by the full time missionaries to go on teaching assignments with them. When we do this we are generally teaching investigators who are interested in learning more about the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to be baptized into the church as new members.

What is the Book of Mormon?

To me the book of Mormon is another amazing testimony that Jesus Christ is real and that the Bible is true. For me the Book of Mormon and the Bible are companion books and I use them both to learn more about Jesus Christ and how to try and follow his example by adhering to his teachings and learning better ways to serve others.
