Hi I'm Michael

Public servant. Devoted Father, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 30 years old and a father of two daughters. We currently live in the New Orleans area in Louisiana. I am a member of the United States Coast Guard and serve as a helicopter search and rescue pilot. I enjoy serving the American public and strive to do my best in all that I do. I enjoy researching American History and the endless reading of the many excellent books available to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love The Gospel of Jesus Christ. I strive to better myself through the examples our Savior has set. I share His love through word and deed and enjoy gaining an understanding of our place in this world through our Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving others as our Saviour taught us. I also enjoy being a leader to the youth of our community and our church. I have had countless positive influences during the course of my life from church and community leaders, therefore I would like to take every opportunity to pay that forward. Taking advantage of everyday to serve through example if the best way for me to live my faith.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Baptism is a beautiful and necessary ordinance for membership into the Lord's Church. Most investigators are often confused as to the requirement for baptism, especially if they have been "baptized" in the past. The baptismal ordinance performed for our Church is done with the proper priesthood authority that was re-established during the restoration in Joseph Smith's time. Show more Show less
