Hi I'm Mike

I'm a husband, father, an amateur of all trades, a PhD Student of literature, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a PhD Student aspiring to become a professor of American and Native American Literature. I love my family, friends, music, books, soccer, and the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon, everything from the people to the doctrine to the lifestyle, brings me a profound peace that I've experienced no where else.

How I live my faith

I'm just an average guy trying to do what is right. I start my day with a prayer, read the scriptures, and then try to make the most out of each day.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Mike
One of my favorite scriptures in The Book of Mormon teaches, "Adam fell that men might be and men are that they might have joy." The purpose of life is exactly that, to have joy. We are here to learn how to recognize, experience, and then share our joy with those around us. Show more Show less
