Hi I'm Will Huntsman

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a 21 year old kid who is attending college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I grew up in Shelley Idaho, and had the greatest time living there! I love playing sports. Also love boating, hunting, fishing, and just being outdoors! I'm the youngest of 5 kids. I love my family, and love spending time with them.

Why I am a Mormon

The main reason why I am a member of this Church is because I know it is true. I know this is Christ's Church and the same gospel and doctrine that He taught while He was on the earth. That when He and His Apostles died, things were changed and distorted. So God did what He has always done, he called a prophet to lead and guide us to truth and light and avoid the darkness. That prophet being the prophet Joseph Smith. Through Joseph Smith Christ's Church was made whole again. Joseph Smith was given a sacred record to translate in order to restore those truths that were lost. That record being the Book of Mormon. And The Bible and Book of Mormon together tell us everything that we need to know in order to return back to our Father in Heaven. Joseph Smith was indeed a prophet just like Moses or Noah. And there is a prophet that leads Christ's Church today. I know these things to be true because I have felt the Spirit bear witness to me of these truths. We can only know of such spiritual truths through that witness of the Spirit. And to receive such a witness all it takes is to study with a sincere heart, ponder your studies, and ask God if its true. I'm a Mormon because this gospel and church make me happy. And I can have eternal happiness if I just abide by the commandments given. Commandments that are given to us for that specific reason, eternal happiness. Being a Mormon has given me a greater understanding of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and has allowed me to draw even closer to Them.

How I live my faith

The whole purpose of this life is to grow and become like our Father in Heaven and be able to enjoy the happiness that He enjoys. He provided a perfect example of how to become like Him through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. So I live my faith by trying to do those things that Christ himself would do. And my faith provides the best way to do so.
