Hi I'm Micah.

I am a red-head that grew up in Arizona (rough mix without sunscreen). I am a proud husband and father, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a huge fan of my wife, 2 kids (nearly 3), basketball and athletics of nearly every type, brand management (my profession), and being outdoors. I've done a little bit of travel in the world, but do look forward for more opportunities to explore this big, blue globe. There is so much to see and experience in life, and I feel very lucky and blessed for the portion I've received.

Why I am a Mormon

Although my parents raised me in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I began to question for myself if I really believed in the message of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was becoming a teenager. I had lived the life of a Latter-Day Saint up to that point because that is what my parents had taught, it's what most of my friends also were, and it was plain to see the healthy and rich life that comes as you live the tenets of the faith. However, I felt I needed to know for myself. What happened to me was that I was challenged to personally study the scriptures daily (which is something I had not religiously (pun intended;) done up to that point in my life). I had a habit of prayer, and had felt the Spirit from time-to-time in my life, but had not been reading faithfully every day. During my freshman year of high school, I read the New Testament every single day, and

How I live my faith

The most important way that I live my faith is personally praying and reading the scriptures. This is the foundation of my life, and it provides me with a tremendous amount of peace and confidence in making decisions. I also listen to modern-day prophets and apostles messages every day on my bike commute into work. Every 6 months (in April and October), the entire Church has a conference (called General Conference) where the prophet, apostles, and other leaders of the Church address the membership throughout the world. They give messages from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for our day, and I've found as I study the scriptures, modern-day prophetic words, and pray, I feel the Holy Ghost more in my life, which directs me to fulfill my responsibilities as a father, husband, and even other assignments I receive in the Church. I've served in a number of assignments during my life - some have been to help in the BSA Scouting program, helping with the youth and young men of the Church, planning social events, and even teaching classes on Sunday. My current assignments involve visiting some elderly women and families monthly to ensure they are doing well, both spiritually and physically, along with working with leaders of young men in the area to strengthen the youth of the Church. I also am assigned to work in the temple that is closest to my family once a month in assisting temple attendees with the work that is performed there.
