William W. Phelps
My story is similar to William W. Phelps, for I have drunk of the bitter cup. Not only have I drunk, but have caused others cups to overflow. As Joseph Smith Jr. said, "those who were friends at first are friends at last." I have repented and returned to the true fold, though remain far from perfect. W.W. Phelps gives me hope that the Lord, "remembers my sins no more." I am a month from regaining my Temple Recommend and am a true testimony that people can change. Even the churches most bitter enemies can once again become friends.
I have a testimony that this church is true. I may not have a perfect witness, but I do know. I have been forgiven of sins that I thought no man could be forgiven of. I was a true enemy of this church. Jesus Christ and his true disciples are merciful, for I have received their mercy. Like W.W. Phelps I have returned for the remainder of my days, never to fall away. I am just so grateful. I love the Lord and his church.
I wrote this for two reasons:
1. That people will believe that change can occur, even in enemies.
2. To gather as much information about W.W. Phelps as possible. Does anybody know any talks, books or anything about W.W. Phelps?
