Hi I'm Bill

I am a Senior Citizen and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like bike riding and I do a lot of family history research. I like being retired but I keep busy. Over the last few years I have learned to play the piano.... just basic church hymns. My wife and I have been married for over 40 years and we have four children and several grandchildren that we enjoy very much. I have not always been a Mormon. When I was in the Army I was baptized when I was 19 years old. After serving in the Army I went on a Church Mission to Chile, South America. Professionally I was an Inventory Controller at a large Distribution Center..

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a young person in High School I wondered if God really existed. I was searching for an answer and I prayed about it. In the Army a "buddy" gave me the pamphlet "Joseph Smith Testimony". I was excited to know that God the Father and Jesus Christ his son appeared to Joseph Smith. To me it proved that Jesus Christ and his Father were real, it was an answer to my prayer. Ever since I have worked at being a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God along with the Bible.

How I live my faith

Two years ago my wife and I returned from serving a Church Mission in Spain. We worked with young adults. Since returning from Spain I have been involved with the Boy Scouts of America. I enjoy helping the young people in my church youth group.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Bill
I have never "worshiped" Joseph Smith. I have always believed that Joseph Smith and subsequent Presidents of the Church were prophets like Moses and leaders like Peter in the New Testament. Show more Show less
