Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Husband, Father, Son, Brother, Eagle Scout, IT Manager, Outdoors-man, and avid Scouter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a family man. I married my college sweetheart, whom I met shortly after returning from a Church Mission to Mexico. I enjoy spending time with my children and seeing them grow. I spend much of my free time leading boys and men in the Boy Scouting program, and appreciate the difference this program makes in helping boys grow into men of faith and action.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church. Yet, I have found that we all must determine our own path in life. My path allowed me many opportunities to feel the quiet whisperings and promptings of the Lord, confirming to me the correct principles I have been taught. Though life may bring us struggles and difficulties, I have found that I am most happy when I follow the teaching of Jesus Christ and apply the teachings of his prophets to my own life.

How I live my faith

Within the Church I work with several other men to oversee and provide for the needs of Young Men in a large geographical area, called a Stake. Together with the Adult leaders over our Young Women, we organize dances, spiritual activities, trips, camps, fireside chats and conferences which provide opportunities for our youth to interact and grow in an environment which meets the standards we uphold. I am constantly amazed at the strength, quality and goodness of the youth of the Church, and have grown much from my interaction with them.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Husbands and wives are equal partners in proving the care, nurturing and guidance needed within a family. As equal partners both work together to build up each other and each member of the family. Amongst the many tools we have to help us fulfill these responsibilities are the gender differences which our Father in Heaven blessed us with. By recognizing and building on the positive aspects of these differences a husband and wife are able to bring blessings to a family which would otherwise not be present. Show more Show less
