Hi I'm Bill

I served in the Navy, I fly powered parachutes, I love my family and church family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love flying in powered parachutes. I've always loved birds and things that fly, so sometimes I could be found trying to catch bird with salt. So it was natural that I ended up cruising in the sky on powered parachutes. I have three lovely daughters, three beautiful granddaughters, and one great-granddaughter. I served in the Navy for four years, from 1964-1968. After serving in the Navy, I worked as a milk man and delivered dairy. For 11 years I worked at the steel mill in town. Last summer I met the sister missionaries, and started learning more about the LDS church. I was baptized August 5th, 2017.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because, when two sister missionaries came up to me while I was sitting on the porch. After talking to them for about twenty minutes, I invited them back to teach me some more. I am a big history buff, and they just told me about another book of scripture I never heard of before. I loved learning about the Book of Mormon and reading it with the missionaries. Once I started going to church and heard the testimonies of others, it always touched my heart. The more I learned, the more truth I felt. I know Thomas S. Monson is the prophet of the Lord, and that we lived with God before this life and we will live with Him again. The Book of Mormon just made sense to me, and I know the testimonies within it's pages are true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures, and getting my "battery" recharged at Church on Sundays. I love the talks and testimonies of others. I serve in my congregation and make sure everyone feels welcome. My favorite scripture is John 15:16, which states that God chooses us and readies us for the work He has cut out for us. Whenever we read God's word, we are reading what He specifically need us to hear.
