Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was baptized on Dec. 5, 2009 and I'm thoroughly loving the Faith! I'm a retired teacher, finished the last 10 yrs. teaching the grade of angels, 3rd! My beautiful wife and I have been married for 15 yrs. and, between us, we have 5 grown children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my heart was swayed by the enriching beauty of an active member. I first had the opportunity to have visual contact with her at a Target cafe where she was employed and a place that i had chosen to undertake my short lived creative writing passion. Aside from her natural beauty, I could sense the presence of some unidentifiable, major source of attraction. She had such a generous vitality, such a subtle persuasion, such magnetic, spiritually glowing eyes that I found it a useless task trying to continue writing. My instinct continued to draw me back to the small cafe, not so much for the writing but to be able to witness this woman of breathtaking, multifacited beauty. I knew that there was something definitely, beautifully attractive about her and I was determined to discover the source. This took a bit longer than I had planned. We were married for about 8 years before I made the connection between her inner glow and the church. After I had figured that out, it wasn't long before I was an Investigator. The wonderful docternal teachings of the church with the restored gosple and the living Prophet had me totally engrossed. Then, one evening, Donna and I were sitting in the living room reading scriptures, when suddenly I felt the warmth of a presence in the room with us. Tears came to my eyes. I was just able to turn my head to look at Donna, and she appeared to be experiencing the same feeling that I was. It was a very comforting feeling. Then, the feeling slowly left my body and I could talk again. The Holy Ghost had both elated me and humbled me into a state of awe. I am forever grateful for that wonderful occasion.

How I live my faith

I enjoy visiting other members from our ward from time to time and either presenting them with a specific lesson or just visiting with them, seeing how they've been and talking about any problems that may be besetting them. I am the Employment Specialist for our ward as well. In this position I try to find possible employment opportunities for the members in need plus offer them help in writing a resume and whatever areas that they may be in need of help. I am also a member of the Elders Quorum. In this position , I meet with the other members and we identt
