Hi I'm Mike

I'm a Mormon. I have been all my life.

About Me

I grew up in an active Mormon family that cared for me and brought me up in the gospel. I'm married to a wonderful woman. We got married for all time and eternity in the Dallas Temple. I'm a father of a perfect little baby boy and girl.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I choose to be. No one has forced me to be. I know God the Father and Jesus Christ are in control of this world we all call home. I believe Joseph Smith was a true man of God. He put his life before ours by sealing his testimony, with his own blood, of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am Mormon because I believe that Heavenly Father is our Eternal Father and Jesus our brother. They are two individual beings. The holy ghost is an individual who has no body so that he can dwell with us and help us through this life.

How I live my faith

My faith was nurtured from birth but over the years I have found my own experiences and personal revelations have made me realize the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe we are all here because of his sacrifice to do the will of the father which included Jesus putting his life before ours. He bled and died for us all. I believe that this life is about the experience and making the most of what we have been given. Those who were ordained before the world was have made this gospel what it is today. We are lost without faith and we have to believe in something larger than us all.

Why do Mormons believe in “eternal life?”

We believe in eternal life because we started life in the preexistence. We are eternal beings. This life we live is for the experience to prove that we will follow Christ and obey Heavenly Father's commandments. Once we pass on from this life we will continue our eternal lives and return to live with our Heavenly Father once again. Show more Show less
