Hi I'm Mitch

I bake pies and read mystery books. I love to be underwater. I'm Mormon.

About Me

I've finished one year of college in Florida studying chemistry. I'm a scientist, but am creative! My dream is to open up a pie shop. I run short-distance triathlons, but I'm happiest at the beach or in the pool with a book. I speak Spanish fluently, having lived in Mexico for two years. I love my family; my siblings are my closest friends. There's no one like me!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I have been raised a Mormon, I've been able to learn for myself that this really is the true church of Jesus Christ. I have a testimony of the truth of the Book of Mormon. I believe we have a prophet on the Earth today. I know that I can live with my family, sealed together, for all eternity, and I love that.

How I live my faith

It's natural to want to share something you love with others. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It's what gives me the greatest satisfaction in my life. Everything I do and everything I love only takes second place.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Mitch
I recommend that you contact local missionaries. They'll be able to answer all of your questions and teach you everything we believe. To really know for yourself if it is true however, you must read the Book of Mormon with a sincere desire to know of its truth. Pray to know whether the things you read are true. Pay attention to how you feel when you read it. You'll know it's true by the power of the Holy Ghost. He will give you joy and peace in your heart. If the Book of Mormon is true, then everything we believe is also true. Joseph Smith must really have been called as a Latter-day prophet of God. I urge you to find out for yourself if what we preach is true. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Mitch
Faith is a hope. In this life we are ALL going to suffer disappointments, griefs, and pains, but faith is the positive attitude and the hope that everything is going to be okay. Since I love to bake pies, I'll compare it to that. A pie in the oven has to suffer high temperatures in order to cook right and leave the oven being a delicious and warm pie. In the same way, we have to suffer in this life to be purified and reach the potential Heavenly Father knows we have. Faith is to say, "I know that one day I can become that delicious pie" and then suffer with patience and hope. Show more Show less
