Hi I'm William Storey

I was introduced to the Church by a friend while living in California.

About Me

I grew up with no real religious background, but I always knew there was a God and that there was more that I needed to do than just expect the Lord to save me without me having to do anything. I was introduced to the Mormon Church by a friend who asked me what I knew about the true Church on the earth. That question started me thinking that there may be, actually, one true Church. After many discussions and much prayer, the Holy Ghost revealed to me that the Lords true Church has been restored and there is a modern day Prophet leading that Church here on the earth. That Prophet receives Heavenly inspiration to lead and guide the Church. My life has been filled with much service and happiness in that service. I know I have things to do to return to my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ, and I can obtain that with His help. My wife and children are a blessing to me and the knowledge I have tells me that we can live together after this life if we are faithful to the things the Lord has asked us to do and keep His commandments.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was first asked what I knew about the Church I admitted that I knew nothing at all. Until that time I had never been approached by a missionary or a member. I spent the next three years reading and discussing the scriptures. It took me a while to accept that those things that I had been reading and discussing and praying about were the true Gospel. I accepted the challenge to be baptized and confirmed by someone who had the authority. My life has been blessed because I have tried to live the way the Lord would have me do. I have been ordained to the Priesthood that Jesus Christ had, and it has given me many opportunities to use that Priesthood to help bless others. My testimony is that Jesus Christ lives and He wants us to return to Him and His Father. He died for us, and I can not let His death go unnoticed and unfulfilled. He is my Redeemer and my Savior. and I love Him for what He has done for me and you. We have a work to do and I accept that responsibility.

How I live my faith

I have served often teaching the youth of this Church. I have been asked to be an adult leader to help teach them the things the Lord expects from them. I have been blessed knowing that these youth understand and commit to the teachings of our Heavenly Father, and seeing them grow up to be both husbands and wives willing to do the Lords work. My wife and I now teach the older members about what the Lord needs us to do at this time in our lives. The blessings we received when serving have made our lives very rich. We love the Lord and the opportunities we have to serve Him and His church.
