Hi I'm Billy Stewart

I grew up in Utah and was raised in the church. I enjoy playing soccer and love the outdoors.

About Me

I am the oldest of 4 children and was raised in Utah. I played many sports in my youth including football and soccer. Soccer is my favorite sport to play. I also spent a lot of time camping and doing outdoor activities. I love being outdoors and enjoying all of God's creations. When I was not playing sports or camping I was practicing and performing music. I have learned how to play several instruments, but I do better playing the piano and violin more than any of the other instruments. I graduated high school and have a strong interest in History. I love the stories about the past and want to pursue a career that will continue to allow me to learn more about what happened before I was born.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of this church has brought me such joy and happiness that is difficult to describe. I love feeling the spirit and don't want to do anything that would hinder my ability to feel the spirit. I was born and raised in the church and have had a love of it since I was eight. I remember the feeling I felt during my baptism and remember the promises that were given to me when I received the Holy Ghost. These promises and feelings have helped me at various times in my life. Whenever I am struggling or not feeling very good then I remember my baptism and try to draw closer to my Heavenly Father. The peace and joy that these experiences have given me would have been extremely difficult to gain if I was not a member of this church. The church has helped me realize that I am never alone and that I can get through any trial that I am going through. The teachings of this church are true and I cannot image where I would be without the knowledge I have gained from these teachings.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of the church and have enjoyed countless blessings. I am always my happiest when learning about the gospel and strive my best to keep the commandments. I would not trade my membership in the church for anything. I have held various callings in the church that have helped me live my faith. I have been in the presidency of my Deacons, Teacher, and Priests quorum. While in these positions I have had to opportunity to grow closer to my Savior and also help my other quorum members gain a relationship with our Father in Heaven. My favorite calling that I have received was that of the Priesthood Music Coordinator. Music invites the spirit so well and I love helping to invite the spirit into our Priesthood meetings. Being able to perform and set up spiritual musical numbers has helped me appreciate all that I have been blessed with. I keep striving to follow Christ's example the best I can so that I can continue to have the joy and happiness that I have been blessed with.
