Hi I'm Myke Weber

About Me

I'm a life-long member of the Church. I served a Mission for the Church in the Philippines. I'm married and enjoy four daughters, a son-in-law and two precious grandchildren. My sweet wife and I are both retired and enjoy traveling this wonderful world of ours.

Why I am a Mormon

I have extensively studied the world's religions. There is much good to be gleaned from each of them. I have benefited greatly from learning of the beliefs and experience of others. The thing that stands out about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that it is directed by a living prophet, who like the prophets of old, receives direct revelation from Heaven. Revelation which is directly applicable to today - not contrary to yesterday - but relevant to our particular needs in a modern world. I have followed that prophet and nothing he has directed me to do has led to anything but joy and progress. The living prophet has helped me understand that God has a plan for me, that he is my own Father, who loves me, whose only desire is to bring me home to be given all that He has. The living prophet has taught me to receive revelation for myself. What a blessing, to be personally guided in my life, as to what is best for me and my family.

How I live my faith

Presently, I'm serving in the Church as Branch President of a Church Branch serving a youth corrections facility. I love teaching these wonderful young people about the love of Jesus Christ and about His precious Atonement that not only allows them to be forgiven but facilitates the process of change and progress. Living my faith is not just a Church job though, it is a way of life! I have need of the Savior in every moment and aspect of my life. I am far from perfect, but Jesus Christ, understanding that, is helping me learn, grow and be happy as I work toward becoming like Him.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Myke Weber
If you and I were to sit down together at a sidewalk cafe. And if I were to order a tall glass of cold lemonade and you chose a ordinary soda. And lets suppose I tasted my lemonade and found it to be spectacular. Like above and beyond anything I'd ever tasted. Can you imagine my desire to share my discovery with you? That's why I proselyte. I have found something extraordinary and I can hardly restrain myself from shouting from the roof tops. This is not to say you haven't found things that are fine and delightful, I just want you to consider experiencing the joy that I have found. Our message is centered in our Savior Jesus Christ. He has rescued me from the clutches of addiction and sin and given me a new life! That partnership is joyful and full of peace. I was utterly unable to do for myself what Christ has done for me. It would be shameful if I were to enjoy such blessings and not joyfully share them with you. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Myke Weber
In my work with troubled youth I find so many who've had little exposure to religion. Most are unacquainted with their Heavenly Father. I hope you take comfort in something I often affirm to them: We are NOT sheep in God's pasture. We are NOT pawns on His chess board. We are NOT rats in God's laboratory. Nor are we art his his gallery. We ARE God's own sons and daughters, whom He loves. God desires that we, His children grow up to be just like Him. He desires to give us ownership and dominion over all He possesses. Further, He desires that we attain to His power and grandeur, by making appropriate choices to that effect. He is God because He subjects Himself perfectly to the laws that govern the inhabitants of the universe. One of those laws is justice. Another is agency. He will not violate those immutable principles that govern the expanse of creation. In protecting our agency, He is aware that we will make wrong choices as we learn and grow. Those wrong choices will, due to the law of justice, preclude us from returning to live with Him. Thankfully, there is another law, a law of Mercy whereby justice can be satisfied. God loves us, His children, so much, that He was willing to sacrifice His perfect, beloved, firstborn Son, who by so doing has satisfied the demands of justice enabling mercy to ransom us from the consequences of our mistakes. He doesn't ask us to sacrifice ourselves to reconcile Him to us, but rather sacrificed Christ to reconcile us to Him, so we could eventually come home to dwell with Him. He is the arch-typical Father and possesses similar, though more refined, inclinations toward His posterity to those of our earthly fathers. Certainly, we, understanding that, can only be inclined to long to be like Him. Show more Show less
