Hi I'm Mike Prisbrey

I'm a newlywed. I found and married the love of my life and other half Ashlee Prisbrey, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am my wife's husband. I love my cute little wifey. We have been married since June 25 2010, where we were sealed for time and all eternity in the Logan Temple. We are currently attending Weber State University. I love the outdoors, sports, gymnastics/tumbling, and good wholesome movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a witness and conviction that this is Christ's church on the earth and that He leads it. I have received this conviction through study and prayer, by myself, in the quiet and reverence of my own mind and heart void of all other influences except that of the Holy Ghost. I know that Christ lives and loves everyone of us on this earth and died for each and everyone of us, just as I know that I live and breath and that the sun shines.

How I live my faith

I live and love my faith by always trying to be kind and considerate to my wife, my family and friends, which to me inlcudes every person on this whole earth. For if we are all sons and daughters of God then we are all siblings in the eternal sense under God our Father. Locally in my ward I am currenlty serving as a substitute gospel doctrine teacher and home teacher. I also served and loved every second of it, and still miss it a full time mission to Raleigh North Carolina, Spanish Speaking.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Mike Prisbrey
We need a Savior because "no unclean thing can dwell with God". Since every one of us sins, or does things that take us further away from God, we need someone to pay the price for our mistakes to atone, or to make as one, ourselves with our perfect Father in Heaven. You see just as every calorie we eat is either burned or stored or disposed of via waste. Even so if it is stored however, as I myself realize every time I want to "get back into shape" those calories must be burned. Even though I "stored" them months ago I must still burn them off before I return back to my former self. So as it is with sin. Say God is perfectly healthy, and He wants our spirits to be perfectly healthy. In fact Our Father has such high standards that if our spirits aren't in good enough shape, then we won't even like living in his presence, kind of like could you imagine living in a workout gym if you were really out of shape? So every sin we commit, or good deed we omit is like a calorie that we store. We commit so many sins, or omit doing good things so often that by ourselves, we could never "burn off" all the "calories" so to speak to by ourselves make us as "healthy" as God is. So through Christ's Atonement He teaches us how to change our lives so as to avoid and "burn off" all the "calories"/sins we can, while through His Atonement He takes care of everything else we can't. He even helps us up when we want to give up, He motivates us, and He loves us. In fact in the scriptures it even describes His perfect love and infinite strength to lift and bless us in this way: "Christ's Love never faileth." So He will never give up on us until we meet the "health" standards that God expects. He will work with us, and motivate us, and love us, and strengthen us all the way until He has brought us to where God, and we want to be. However God and Christ can only lift us as high as we want or believe we can go. So we must repent and accept Christ's Atonement fully by seeing ourselves through His and Our Eternal Father's eye's.
