Hi I'm Mike

I Hunt, I Fish, I love the outdoors, I'm a New England Patriots fan, Eu sou Corintiano....and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Its like I said I love sports, food, fishing, hunting. My favorite sport is Football, im a BIG New England Patriots fan, I love playing Football and watching it. The collage team's i like are first of all BYU, and then it would have to be Bama "The Crimson Tide". My Favorite soccer team is The Flamengos, and then Real Salt lake. I will eat just about anything...maybe. I also love to cook, I know some men find it girly but I love it. I grew up with a love of fishing. My dad would take me and my brother on fishing trips and I loved every minute of it, but hunting I just started in 2009 and I have been hooked ever sence! I pretty much just roll with the punches, a easy going kinda guy. I grew up in the church but i have plenty of friends that arn't members, so I know what its like for someone to be investigating the church. It's not an easy transistion but ill tell you one thing. It's worth it! Right now i am serving a full time mission for the church. I have Served Five months in The Florida, Tallahassee mission, and Now I am serving in the João Pessoa, Brazil Mission. Friends and familiy are what keep me going in life and I love and cherish each and everyone of them.  

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church born and raised, and I never really had my own testimony till I was about 18. I always went off of my parents testimony and teachers tought me. I never fully understood what I was doing or why I was doing it. After my dad passed away in 2009 I stopped going to church regularlly and just started to become less active in the church. I used the fact that my father had just passed away to get out of doing things and then I would sit around woundering why....why me? why did my dad have to leave me? why sudenly do I feel so alone? I didn't like where my life was going so I decided to make a change. Thats when I met someone. I met someone who forever changed my life. She was the example i was waiting for, she was the example I needed to get my self back into gear. She was the answer to my prayers I was so desprately praying for. She was always so happy and always had this "glow" to her and I didn't know what it was. Whatever it was that she had that was making her so happy i wanted it. I found out that no matter the strugles life throughs at you that we can always rely and turn to the lord. I didn't fully understand that until I met her. So I followed her example and started going back to church and reading the book of mormon. When I would read the Book of Mormon I noticed my faith and testimony was slowly growing. I came to relaize who I am, who my Hevanly Father is, and what our savior Jesus Christ did for me. When I finished the Book of Mormon I didn't feel this "grand spirt" or the overwelming sensation, but I did feel at last ease and happyness once again. Thats when I knew this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was and is the true church of Jesus Christ here on this earth today. Why am I am a mormon you ask, I am Mormon because this church brings happiness that no other church can bring, this church brings others unto christ, this church teaches the plain and simple princeples that were tought when Christ was here on the earth. I am Mormon because I know this church is true. 

How I live my faith

Well as of right now I am serving the church on a full time mission. People out in the world need to hear this message of christ and of the Book of Mormon, and I am going to do the best I can with my heavanly fathers help to share it. Before my mission I would go and visit families in my neighborhood with my father and teach them about principles of the gosple, and share with them what we know to be true. or sometimes we would just drop by and see how they are doing or if they needed any help with anything. The reason why im on a mission is because I know of the happiness this gosple brings, and I want all those who will listin to know what I know.

What is the Book of Mormon?

It is a record of the people who lived in the Americas around the time that christ lived. It tells of people who left Jeruslem and came to the Americas. It tells of there live's and the teachings of the prophets that lived there. It tells what happend when the people followed the teachings of those prophets, and what happend what happend to thoes that didn't. The Book of Momon contains the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can come to know of this by reading, and praying about its teachings. I have done this, and I envite all those who haven't read it to read it. Show more Show less
