Hi I'm Wylee Orton

I am a huge Alabama Football fan. I am an Electrical Contractor. I like Minion tee shirts. and I Am a. Mormon.

About Me

I am a 2 time 5 year College drop-out. I am an Electrical Contractor, and business owner. As I said that I am a HUGE Alabama Football Fanatic!!! I am also an Alabama Letterman. Not in football, but Swimming. I love the outdoors and the ocean. I am a father of 4. 2 girls and 2 boys. All of who I am very proud. I and my 2 boys are Eagle Scouts. I will be married for 30 years come July, and tried for 7 years to get my wife to marry me, before she finally agreed. I love my family so much that I want them to be with me for eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

I have not always been an active member of the Mormon Faith. During the years after High School, I Looked at other faiths, at the University of Alabama I was involved with some of the Christian youth groups. In these other Christian groups there where questions that I had that they could not answer or refused to address. Things like, if Christ set up his church with Apostles, Seventies etc., why were not these other churches not set up like his; or like in 1 Corinthians 15:29 what was the Apostle Paul taking about Baptism for the Dead. These are just 2 of the many questions that could not be answered to where it made sense to me. I had read the Bible and Studied the New Testament, there were many great teachings in the churches that I visited, but there were many holes as well. So after a couple of years, I returned to where I could get more answers to more of my questions. I started to look at the thing I had been doing in my life as of late and knew that I had to change, so I started to follow Christ as I saw what his words said to me, and I added the studying of the Book of Mormon along with the Bible and virtually all of my questions started to get answered. As the Apostle Paul taught that there was to be a falling away (apostasy) from the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Christ himself had set it up. Paul also taught that this apostasy would continue until there was a restoration of all things. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church on the face of the earth that is set up with a Prophet and Apostles and Jesus Christ as the cornerstone of our church. That revelation is a very important part of our faith. I know that the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is here on the earth again, just as he set it up before he was crucified. I know that Jesus Christ lives, so that you and I CAN LIVE AGAIN AFTER THIS LIFE, with him and our Families. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it geos Hand in Hand with the Bible.

How I live my faith

I try every day to become a better person. I am trying to add a Christ like attribute to my life every day. The scriptures, prayer, and service are very important to me. I have had many callings in the church, from Youth Sunday school teacher, adult Sunday School Teacher, Scout Master, Men's group leader, and Executive Secretary to our local church leader. I absolutely LOVE serving in the church, because it lets me feel more like our Savior Jesus Christ.
