Hi I'm Michael Fry

I'm a Mormon. Mwen memn se yon Monmon. Je suis un Mormon.

About Me

Married since 2002 w/ 2 children (+ one to be born in June 2013) Occupation: High School Teacher Hobbies: Golf, hikes, swimming.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I studied, pondered, and prayed about the truthfulness of this gospel, and I received an undeniable witness of the Spirit of God that this is Christ's church, restored in the latter-days by a true prophet. This is the complete gospel of Christ. This church is led, even today, by prophets, seers, and revelators. Lastly, this gospel teaches me that I can be together with my family for eternity, pending our fidelity to one another and to God.

How I live my faith

I try to practice my faith 7 days a week, though on Sundays I am completely involved in worship and service. I am a member of the "High Council" in our region. As such, I help our Stake President (regional leader) with matters involving missionary work and music. I have held many "callings", but this is my current favorite. Serving in the Church has strengthened my testimony and helped me recognize my dependence on the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Michael Fry
As a Social-Science teacher, I often get this question in one form or another. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints teaches eternal doctrines, including very definitive moral laws and standards, but rarely takes a side on political issues. Members of the church are encouraged to study candidates and propositions and vote based on their own judgement, though my faith certainly helps shape my decisions. Show more Show less
