Hi I'm Mitchell

I'm looking forward to going back to college and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a grandfather of one so far. My wife is a great cook and makes me very happy with her salsa and roast. We live in Arizona and the summers are very hot. I'm in the process of looking for a new career and I'm thinking about moving to Utah. I still want to pursue my education and work towards a graduate degree. I don't want my son to pass me up yet. He begins college when he returns from two years in Uruguay. I want him to go to Brigham Young University and so I'll move there if I need to to make that happen. He wants to get a PHD. I want to help him all I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon, but I like many of my faith still had to come to know it was really true. So I did that. I was 18 when it all came together for me after lots of prayer and study. It was special to me and a combination of experiences I shall never forget. I found out that the Holy Ghost is real. It just gets better and better with time. You'll see what I mean.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. I wouldn't be comfortable doing otherwise. It's what I know and compared to everything else I ever knew before, there's nothing like it anywhere. I love the quiet because I'm trying to get better at listening to the Holy Ghost when it tries to help me make good choices and correct decisions. Mostly it's a whisper and its up to me to listen very carefully. It takes some work, but that's the way it should be. I get better at listening with practice. I have some very tender moments when I see the hand of God in my life. It feels really good and makes me happy.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

One of the most unique characteristics about the Mormon church is the leadership of 12 Apostles of Jesus Christ. I have come to know each of these men through their teachings and a few I have met personally. I have always been hungry for good role models in my life. It's so great to have a healthy supply in the apostles. I know that the Apostles are the Savior's representatives on the earth. I love these great men and would do anything for them because they love Jesus Christ. I get a good dose of their teachings every six months during general conference and in between through regular publications. They strengthen me with their example and their teachings. The Holy Ghost bears witness to me that what they say is true. Show more Show less
