Hi I'm Mike

I'm a writer, a poet, an uncle, a brother, a best friend. I'm Mike and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho in a small farming community called Elba. I have always loved 4-wheeling, snowmobiling and different things like that. When i was 14 i moved to Salt Lake City Utah and started working in a construction company that my family owned doing odd jobs and different things. My dad passed away when i was 16 due to cancer. I love music. It's pretty much my life. I play guitar and I always have my ipod or radio going. I also love writing. I write novels and poetry. My family is also a big part of my life. I have 4 older brothers and 12 nieces and nephews. Life is good. :

Why I am a Mormon

When my father passed away I was having a hard time in my life. A lot of things that I just didn't understand. I was trying to make it through High School, I was only a Junior and life was crazy. I attempted to make it through the Book of Mormon from cover to cover that year and right around the time that he died I was in Alma chapter 40 about half way through the book. The amazing thing about that chapter is that it talks about what happens to us after we die and I read that section exactly when i needed it. I felt calm and peacful in the following months after his death and I knew that no matter what everything would work out. I knew that God has a plan for us and that He loves each of us and wants us to be happy. That testimony has remained with me to this day and will continue to keep me strong in the faith of Christs redeeming love.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a two year mission in Atlanta Georgia teaching people about the church and the doctrines of Christ.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is an ancient record much like the Bible. It tells the story of a family that fled from Jerusalem before it's destruction and were lead by God to a promised land, the Americas. It tells of their trials and afflictions and the eventual downfall of their whole civilization. It is another Testament of Jesus Christ and tells us how we can accept him in our lives, why his atonement his sacrifice and suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane, on the cross, and his eventual Resurrection is important to us and how we can use it in our live. It bears witness of God and Jesus Christ and helps us to understand who we are, why we are here, and where we are going when we die. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it will help all of us come closer to our Lord and Savior. Show more Show less
