Hi I'm Mike

I'm a husband, a soon-to-be father, and a student--and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married now for about two years to the love of my life. We're expecting our first baby girl and having a great time getting ready for her. I'm a college student studying exercise science. Whenever I'm not busy with work, school or family I love to read and play racquetball (not simultaneously).

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon gives me peace and direction in my life. As I have studied the scriptures to learn about Jesus Christ and His gospel I have felt many times that Jesus Christ truly is my Savior. I want to follow him as well as I possibly can. As I have studied and prayed about the Book of Mormon and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have felt a calm assurance that this truly is the church of Jesus Christ. Knowing that I belong to His church brings me peace and helps me to know that I am striving to live the way that He wants me to.

How I live my faith

I'm grateful for the opportunity that I have to serve those around me because this is a way that I am able to live my faith. I am currently serving my local church as a financial clerk. This means that I help to handle the tithes and offerings that are given by members of the church and help to make sure they are used properly. This has been a blessing to me as I have been able to see how the faithfulness of church members in giving tithes and offerings can bless the lives of many people.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mike
I have had so much joy and peace come into my life as a result of being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I would feel selfish if I didn't want to share this with others. That is why I try to share my beliefs with those around me and it is the reason why missionaries all over the worlds are sharing this same message. Show more Show less
