Hi I'm Layne Williams

I grew up in a small town in Missouri. l love volunteering at the veterans home. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have 6 people in my family and I am the oldest of four children. I love doing art, riding horses, and spending time with family. I just finished my first semester of college and I want to study to be a physical therapist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true. I have felt the spirit of the Lord testify this to me. I have seen the many blessings in my life that lets me know that He knows me personally and loves and cares about me. He wants me to return to live with Him again. I know that my family can be together for all eternity through the blessings of the temple. I know that the Lord loves us so much that we have a living prophet today Thomas S. Monson, just like in times of the Bible. He loves us just as much as he loves the people in Bible times, so it makes sense that He would have a living prophet on the earth today. If we follow the prophet and listen to his words we can find peace and joy in these troubles days. The church is all about families and helping us to return to our Heavenly Father & our Brother Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon goes hand in hand with the Bible. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is the record of the dealings of the people on the American continent. I can testify to you that this book will bring you closer to our Savior Jesus Christ than any other book. There is true power in the Book of Mormon. I know because I read from its pages daily and I feel uplifted and it brings me joy.

How I live my faith

I have a part time job and I go to school. I am a kind and friendly person. I come from a small town and so I know just about everyone in town. I volunteer at a nursing home on a regular basis. I teach the nursery age children (18 months to 3 years) at church.
