Hi I'm Wilf

I was born in Skemersdale, I am a father, a grandfather, and a great-grandfather, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I enjoy pass walking but unfortunately my legs have given up on me so I don't get to do that as much. I enjoy going on drives with my wife. My favourite kind of music is actually church hymns but I do enjoy listening the music from theatre productions as well. I love movies with happy endings...old movies! I am a Dad of four, a grandfather of 5, and a great-grandfather of 6. I have been happily married for 57 years to my wonderful wife and look forward to many more years to come.

Why I am a Mormon

It all started when the Mormon missionaries knocked on my door in 1976. I didn't invite them in because we had some family struggles we were dealing with at that time. I asked for them to leave me something behind that I could take a look at and so they left me with The Book of Mormon, which I told them I would read. The missionaries came back the next week and I was able to invite them in to have a chat. They were able to answer my questions satisfactorily which strengthened my faith. I felt like I knew the truth about the things that they were saying. At this time, we had endured the loss of a child. Knowing the teachings of the church, I had great comfort at the loss of my daughter. Shortly after this trial of my faith, I was baptised into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I gained a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and my faith grew tremendously and I haven't looked back since.

How I live my faith

In our church, I have been set apart to give Patriarchal blessings. Patriarch means father. I am able to give these blessings to any church members living in the Liverpool, England Stake. In my community I am chairman of the local Stroke Club. We organize outings every month for people who have had strokes and their families.
