Hi I'm Michael
I am a father of two my wife and I were married in the Houston Texas temple and started our family in Northwest Arkansas. We love the area, the people, and our family all around us. I love spending time with my family, and keeping up with any hobbies that time allow.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a member of this Church because I have received a witness through the power of the Holy Ghost, that it is the true and living Church with the fullness of the Savior's gospel. I know that even though it was rejected in primitive times, it was again restored to the earth through a prophet. The fullness of the gospel has given me a sure foundation, so that I know who I am, and why I am here. Most importantly, I learn what the Savior has done for me so that I can pass this trial of life victoriously, and return to live with Father in Heaven again eternally with my Family.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
Long ago, when Christ and his apostles were rejected, living revelation and scripture had ceased and it was a dark era... lucky some of the ancient Scripture was kept, But, I can't imagine how awful it must have been to live without Christ's living gospel, living revelation, and a Prophet. The message that missionaries are so eager to share, is that Christ has called a Prophet again (as he always has), and the Fullness of his Gospel in perfect clarity has been restored with all authority, and power... That message is such great news; we go on 2 year missions into the world to declare it. So many people are looking for the light of the living gospel, that when they finally hear about it, it changes their lives. I served a two year mission in Paraguay South America. It was one of the most amazing times of my life.
How I live my faith
I live my Faith by striving to live as the savior has lived in example. It is not always easy, but I know that Christ’s grace is sufficient to carry me after I do all that I can. My wife and I also try to keep our eye on the words of the Living prophets today. Their prophetic words and council have greatly blessed our family. I enjoy serving in my church calling. We have a great group of men, and it is a true pleasure to learn from them, and to serve with them.
