Hi I'm Michael

I work as a safey compliance officer...I love Christ, I love my wife, I love my children...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married and a proud dad of four beautiful children. I have twin daughters who are 8, a 6 year old son and a very mischevious 3 year old daughter who faces medical challenges that include epilepsy, sleep apnea, apraxia and dyspraxia. I enjoy playing games with my children, especially when they make up the game and rules as we go. They are very imaginative. I also enjoy going on weekly date nights with my wife, hunting, playing basketball, chess, reading books and doing yard work.

Why I am a Mormon

In order for me and my family to return to our Father in Heaven and live as an eternal family we need to follow in the foot steps of Jesus Christ. It is only through the Atonement of Jesus Christ that gives us this opportunity. Part of the Atonement is accepting his teachings and belonging to His true church.

How I live my faith

*By doing the right thing even though its not the easiest thing to do. *Attending my church meetings. *Sharing the gospel with friends, neighbors and people I work with. *Serving in church callings which have included teaching 10 & 11 year olds, teaching other adults, attending other meetings and keeping notes. *Volunteering service and time which have included yard work, shoveling snow, roofing, moving furniture, giving a listening ear, and teaching to families in their homes *Having family night every monday. *Teaching my children how to pray and how to receive answers to their prayers. *Teaching my children to read their scriptures daily, and how to use the scriptures to find answers to problems they may be having.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Michael
Belief alone in Jesus Christ is not enough to be saved. You must act upon this belief by having faith in him, repenting of your sins, being baptized into his true church, receiving the holy ghost, and living your life according to His commandments and laws He has set. After all this we still can not save ourselves, we never could. We all have sinned, and only after we do these things will we be worthy of His grace. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Michael
No...one evening I received a phone call from a friend who's neighbor was in need of some help redoing his roof. The shingles were being delivered the next day and his roofing contractor had to pull out. His neighbors wife was in the hospital and didn't think it was going to be able to get done. The next morning I went over to help and there was already 4 or 5 men on the roof from my church. A half a dozen more people from my church had shown up and the roof was done by the end of the day. Neither he nor his wife were mormons, but that did not matter. They were in need and we knew they were in need, and that is all that mattered. Jesus has taught us that all men are our brothers no matter our differences. Show more Show less
