Hi I'm William Peirce

I grew up in Utah, have lived in 3 other states, Germany & England. I am a Mormon and serve as a Mission Leader.

About Me

I love my hobbies, I love mathematics and signal processing - that's what I do for my career. I am a father to two daughters and one son. My wife and I love traveling and have a wonderful opportunity to do so while living here. I ski and board (water and snow), golf (6 handicap), ride a road bike (a lot) and love to read history. But most of all, love to hold and play with my twin grand daughters. I can speak German and want to teach myself Russian and Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have had the Holy Ghost testify to me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints teaches the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That His church exists again on the earth and has all the keys and Priesthood authority it had while he was on the earth 2000 years ago. And this gospel is what the world needs to be prepared to meet Him when he comes again. The gospel of our Savior teaches use to repent, believe in Him, be baptized by water and by fire (the Holy Ghost) and endure to the end. His gospel is simple and beautiful and I know that he knows me, loves me and has atoned for my sins.

How I live my faith

I have been a believer in Jesus Christ my whole life. I love him and choose to serve him by spreading his gospel. I do that by serving others. I have been actively involved in scouting for large part of my life. Teaching young boys and trying to be a good example for them to follow. I now serve in my church as a missionary. This is very rewarding, in many ways. It gives me the opportunity to "feed my sheep", to "leave the 99 to find the 1". The gospel of our Savior changes lives in a way that has eternal consequences. Being part of that is an experience like no other. My Savior has provided a perfect example for me to follow, and I bring myself closer to him by serving others.

Who was Joseph Smith?

William Peirce
Joseph Smith was the prophet of the restoration, the first prophet of the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times. He restored the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth for the last time, in preparation for the return of our Savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
