Hi I'm Mike

I grew up in Denver and am a huge Denver Broncos fan. I went on a Mormon Mission to Hawaii. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Linux System Administrator who met my wife while going to school in Utah. I have 4 children, two boys and two girls, who constantly keep me and my wife busy but entertained. I played trumpet all through college, tinker on guitar and piano, and love to play racquetball. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church, but had to find out for myself whether or not it was true. Before my mission, I went to several different churches to hear their beliefs for myself, but found that through the LDS church, the answers to my questions about life and what happens after this life seemed to make the most sense. Beyond that, I have had many spiritual experiences that helped me know that what I was learning in the LDS faith regarding Jesus Christ and the plan of our Heavenly Father was true.

How I live my faith

Since I've been home from my mission, I've been a Sunday School teacher for 16-17 year olds, served as a Boy Scout Leader for a couple of years, and am now in charge of the missionaries for my area (Ward Mission Leader). I love working with the Full-Time Missionaries because they are extremely faithful and their youthfulness helps keep me young.....

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Mike
First and foremost, they will explain how Jesus Christ lived and died for us and what that means to us today. They will discuss with you the reasons we are here in this life, where we came from, and where we are going after we die. They will explain who Joseph Smith is and how he was chosen to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this day. They will ask you about your beliefs and how you came to believe the things you do in order to help you understand how God answers prayers. You will also learn about the Bible and the Book of Mormon and how both books can help bring you and your family closer to each other and to our Savior Jesus Christ and our Father in Heaven. There are many things you will learn as you talk with the Mormon missionaries and you'll be surprised what you will learn from 19-26-year-old young men and women who are striving to live more like Jesus Christ.
