Hi I'm Will

I love to be outdoors. I've played bass with the Utah symphony. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school graduate and will shortly be a missionary for the church. I plan on attending USU... Go Aggies! I play the bass and love music! In fact I plan on becoming a music minor in my college career. I've run distance in track and field and cross country and I enjoy training and running races such as the 5k, 10k, and half marathon. I also just loving being outdoors. Hiking, fishing, gardening, rock climbing, camping, rappelling, you name it as long it is active and outdoors!

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a member of the church. Although I have had the opportunity to be taught principles of the church from a young age that isn't where my true conversion comes from. The reason I am a Mormon is because of the blessings that have come from Jesus Christ. My conversion comes through so many small experiences of happiness and peace after enduring hard things and making the right decisions. It has come from attending church each weak and from attending the Temple as often as I can. I know that through my experiences of prayer and scripture study I have come to know Christ. As I have put my faith in Jesus Christ during hard and trying times he has blessed me. I have felt peace and happiness and comfort. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I know that Jesus lives and has called living prophets to lead and guide his church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that my family can be together for eternity. I know that the Temple is the house of the Lord and a sacred place where families can be sealed for time and all eternity. I know Joseph Smith is a true prophet who translated the book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is true. As I have read and pondered its contents it truly testifies of Christ and the love he has for each one of us. I know that Jesus Christ performed the atonement. He suffered for all of our sins, our trials, and our suffering in mind, body, and spirit. I know that Jesus rose from the dead. Heavenly Father sent his son because he loves and cares about all of us so much. He created us and has prepared a way for each one of us to get through this life.

How I live my faith

I start and end my day with prayer and scripture study. I believe it is very important to exercise faith in Jesus Christ by searching for His gospel in the Book of Mormon and living it. I try my best to be kind and positive as often as I can. I also believe in keeping myself worthy to represent Jesus Christ. I do this by keeping my body healthy and free of addicting substances such as coffee, tea, alcohol, wine, and harmful drugs. I also choose to stay sexually pure by not using my procreative powers until after I am in the bonds of marriage. I also believe in sharing my testimony of Jesus Christ and following His example by sharing His gospel.
