Hi I'm Bill

I was raised in West Texas, now live in Colorado, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for about 10 years to my wife and I am a father of four kids. I personally love traveling although I've traveled relatively little. I used to like riding motorcycles and scooters until I was in an accident and was banned by my 4 year old daughter. My hobbies are exercising, technology, and learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. Growing up, it wasn't always the most important thing in my life though I never came across anything that made me doubt it's truthfulness. I graduated high school and was free to do what I wanted and began to grow further away from the church. After spending some time away, I came back to church, one Sunday, and I knew that was the right place for me to be. I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ truly restored His gospel and His church in our times. There is nothing more important than learning of Him and striving to follow Him. There is no better place to learn to do this than in His church.

How I live my faith

Part of what I feel that I must do to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ is to reach out to help those around me in whatever way I can. I've been blessed to work with youth organizations and church organizations for the men. For me, being able to share with others what I know about finding peace, happiness, and purpose in this life is truly a great joy. Serving others brings great joy and peace to me.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Bill
We definitely believe in the doctrine of grace. Jesus commanded us to be perfect and despite our best efforts, we fall well short of perfection. That is where the grace of our Savior comes into play. He paid the price for any and all of our sins that we have committed or ever will commit. He will make up for our weaknesses, shortcomings, and bad judgement, if... we do our best to live up to his standards. He asks more than for us to just accept him. He asks us to become like Him and to follow Him. This is a doctrine that allows me to be at peace and not stress out that I'm not perfect, as long as I'm doing the best I know how, His grace will be sufficient to make up the difference.
