Hi I'm William

I’m a paraplegic. I’m a proud father, die hard ROLL TIDE FAN. I’m a Mormon!

About Me

My name is William., I am 49 years of age and I have been paralyzed since January 9, 1993. The last 20 years of my life hasn’t been perfect. I have battled with substance and alcohol abuse as well as adjusting to being in a wheelchair. It was a big transformation to my life style. I used my physical condition for an excuse to indulge in the use of substances and alcohol. Fortunately, in mid-January of 2013, I was blessed to have a change of heart and decided to give my life to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am thankful to God because He brought me several missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints into my life that helped me to be faithful to the scriptures on a regular basis. I would like to acknowledge two in particular. They are Elder Ojelade and Elder Whipple. These young men are remarkable and they are dedicated to our Heavenly Father. I know that they were God sent and I love them with all my heart now and forever. Most of all I am happy to say that I was baptized March 30, 2013. I experienced the power of the Atonement of our Lord and Savior.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints beliefs and The Book of Mormon is the most correct book of any book on Earth. The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture, comparable to the Bible. It is a record of God’s dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and contains, as does the Bible, the fullness of the everlasting gospel. I do know what Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he died for his beliefs in The Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through the words of scripture on a daily basis. I know that it is very easy to fall by the wayside, especially when the devil is forever trying to trap me, but I know our Heavenly Father is working triple time to prevent Satan from accomplishing this goal. I also live my faith by sharing the work with my fellow men that are willing to listen. I am going to keep faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and continue to live by and keep our Heavenly Father’s commandments because I most definitely believe in God, The Eternal Father, His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I know that if I continue to walk the straight and narrow I will endure to Eternal Life.
