Hi I'm William Thackeray

I grew up in Salt Lake City Utah. I am serving a mission in Lansing Michigan. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been raised in the church. I have loved it and have grown a lot and my testimony is much stronger than it once was. I love to draw, play music, go rock climbing, and play video games. I have 3 brothers and I am the third child in my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints firstly because I was raised in it. But that is the bare minimum reason why. That is what started it all for my. I have since gained a testimony of the Gospel and been able to read and learn the Book of Mormon is true. I know that through this gospel and this gospel alone, will we make it back to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in the Celestial kingdom. I know that we will be able to live with our families forever in that kingdom and that we can continue to learn and grow in the next life. This church makes and keeps me happy. I know that this is the true church.

How I live my faith

While growing up and receiving the priesthood when I was 12, I was called to be the Deacons Quorum first counselor. I loved this calling and magnified it to the fullest. I was then called to be the Teachers Quorum President two years later. I loved this calling. In Priests Quorum I was the secretary and my next calling is as a full-time missionary.
