Hi I'm Mike

I was adopted to a Mormon family. I love the outdoors. I am father of 4 and husband to wonderful wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married to the most remarkable woman for 20 years and she is my best friend and eternal companion. We have 4 amazing children. I grew up in Arizona, Colorado and Washington. I served a 2 year mission to Cleveland, Ohio Mission. I have a degree in Business but now enjoy working as a Manufacture Engineer. I enjoy the outdoors and love to camp with my family. We love munch popcorn and watch movies together and with friends. We also grow closer together as a family with sports. We are an active bunch. The Northwest is a huge playground where we enjoy the mountains and the beaches.

Why I am a Mormon

I was adopted into a family who was Mormon at a very young age, so I grew up in the church. Even though I was brought up Mormon, I still had to learn for myself that this Gospel was true. I always had felt good about going to church, but I never really asked the Lord in prayer if these things were correct and true. I read the Book of Mormon and followed the promise at the end telling me to pray about what I had read and let the Spirit tell me what I was reading was true. It was not a huge event, just a quiet voice and wonderful feeling letting me know this church was true! Building on that foundation, I continue as an adult to be a Mormon because of the answers that I get to life's questions and the direction I receive in making difficult spiritual and temporal choices. I am also Mormon because of the power of the Priesthood and the ordinances that allow me to live forever with my family. You too can find out for yourself, all it takes is a little faith and a big question!

How I live my faith

Working in the Bishopric, I usually put in @ 12 hours a week dedicated to church work. We do not get paid for any calling in the church. It is purely to be in the service of our Lord and fellowmen. As the 2nd counselor in the bishopric, I have the wonderful privilege of working with the youth! I love the youth and I dedicate my life to being an example for them to follow. With all of the trials and temptations that they face today, it is an overwhelming feeling to try and teach them to make the right decisions on matters that will effect them for the rest of their lives! I am also involved in scouts and community service projects that help not only mormons but people from all aspects of religious beliefs.
