Hi I'm Bil Morrill

I'm a drummer, an actor, a farmer, a university advisor, a father, a husband, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Cottage Grove, Oregon, and work at the University of Oregon as the Assistant Director for Technology in the office of Academic Advising. I enjoy helping students reach towards their dreams. My wife and I run a small farm in Cottage Grove and raise alpacas, chickens & turkeys. We feel it's important to know where our food is coming from, and if it's coming from our farm, we can't know the farmers any better. We also feel it's important to be self-sufficient, and raising our own food for our food storage as well as other's is important to us. We have three daughters, and we are so proud of each of them. They all are individuals, and so special. Our oldest is serving a full-time mission for the Church in the Philippines. She will return home in April of 2015. Our next daughter is extremely involved in the community and school, and is a great example to kids in our community on how a member of the church lives. Our youngest is active in the arts. She plays the violin and enjoys acting with the community theater. I also enjoy the arts, and play drums for a local rock band (all members of the church), and enjoy acting at the community theater. I may be typecast as the religious one, I have played Friar Francis from "Much Ado About Nothing", Clarence the angel in "It's a Wonderful Life" and now I'm getting ready to play the Rabbi in "Fiddler on the Roof". If I have to be typecast, I'm ok with being the religious one!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am still an active member of the Church by choice. I know with all my heard that Jesus is the Christ, that he still speaks to prophets today on the earth, and that if we follow his teachings we can return to live with him again.

How I live my faith

I was just released from serving in the bishopric in our ward. I live my faith by doing what the lord expects of me each and every day. I treat all people as I want to be treated, and think of everyone as my brother or sister (who are truly my best friends!). While I was in the bishopric, my favorite duty was to go to the Primary and work with the young children the in the ward. Listening to them sing praises to our Heavenly Father every week is what brought me joy!
