Hi I'm Micah

I was born in CA & grew up in UT. I love my family, BBQ/cooking, marketing, & video games (generally in that order). I'm a Mormon

About Me

My mother is Hawaiian & Philippino and my dad is as white as can be. I'm not sure what that makes me, but I probably look like a giant Philippino or a small Hawaiian. I have the cutest sons in the world and and I'm married to the best wife in the world. (personal bias?...maybe. But good luck swaying my opinion!) I like to fix things like cars, my house, RCs, etc. I also enjoy playing video games with my friends (I've become bored of playing them by myself). Also I enjoy building websites and marketing them online. Ultimately I love doing anything my family and/or friends are doing. They are all great examples and I love creating and sharing memories with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and grew up in the church. Until I was about 21, I think I was a Mormon because my parents were, my family was, and my friends were. When I moved out, I took the opportunity to do whatever I wanted. I slowly found out that my life was less fulfilling, less enjoyable, and less happy when I didn't live up to the standards of a Mormon. After that realization, I became a Mormon because those standards provide a way to happiness & a realization of ultimate & eternal fulfillment.

How I live my faith

I teach a Gospel Doctrine class which constantly blesses my life. Every time I begin planning a lesson, I'm overwhelmed with a warm love that helps me focus & plan what needs to be discussed. I've noticed that the more effort I put into it, the more I personally get out of it. Not just for that class either. My focus is better at work, I'm much more confident when I'm interacting with others, & it is much easier to express patience during stressful times.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Self-reliance should be important to everyone. You'll find that you have much less stress in your life & you'll have the ability to do the things you want to. On top of that, look at the world around us. You never know when disaster will strike. If you have the ability to feed your family when all other resources are scarce, you'll be thankful that you were prepared. Show more Show less
