Hi I'm Bill Haines

I grew up in Boston, lived in Los Angeles and now in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I travel a bit in my job, mostly the Western United States. My passions are my family, skiing, road cycling, and golf. I just did my first triathlon. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon, because when I read the Book of Mormon, it speaks to my heart, it helps me to understand why I am here, what is expected of me and most important it helps me to understand what to expect when I leave this life. It helps me to know that my relationships with my family are eternal. It helps me to understand the nature of God and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

 My current calling is one of being a Sunday School teacher for 13 to 14 year old. I love to hear their stories from their lives and to help awaken them to the Lord's principles that apply in those lives.

What is being a Mormon like?

Bill Haines
Enlightening. A walk up a hill with good friends. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Bill Haines
A Restoration was needed so the Priesthood, the authority to act in behalf of God, could be brought back to the Earth and we needed the church to be organized like it was originally. The Bible is good but it does not have all the Words of God, nor does it have the fullness of the gospel. Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Bill Haines
This is when Joseph Smith was visited by God the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. It is confirmation that God still talks to his children. It was Joseph Smith's First Vision but not man kinds. Show more Show less
