Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Dad, Grandpa, Papa, and a Husband. I work as a plumber and I absolutely love my job! I love to sail and do all sorts of outdoor activities. Life is too short to just sit around and watch TV or read the internet.

Why I am a Mormon

As an adult I was unhappy with many aspects of my life. I had a lot going for me, but there was also an emptiness. I was born and raised in the LDS church and had drifted away in my youth. I always knew that my Father in Heaven wanted me to be happy. I knew He wanted me to be able to return to live with Him after this life. I prayed for His help to find the right path. He answered my prayers in a way that I absolutely knew that God lived and heard my prayers. That's how my testimony began. Many awesome people have helped me, including the missionaries. My life has changed in wonderful ways, and I am a better person. The Mormon church has the answers to the questions no one else can answer. It makes sense to me. Most importantly, I know in my heart that it is right. I love being LDS.

How I live my faith

Currently, I serve as the "Ward Mission Leader". This means I work with the ward missionaries and the full time missionaries to bring the gospel to others who have not heard of it and also to those who may need a helping hand to rejuvenate their activity in the faith. It is about the coolest church job a person could have. I go on appointments with the missionaries and teach people the gospel. I give rides to church, organize potlucks, plan activities, and just about anything else that needs to be done to further the ward's effort to help bring people unto Christ.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Michael
Everyone should tithe to the Lord. I have received so many blessings from paying my tithing it is unbelievable. I believe that paying tithing is an opportunity more than a commandment in the sense that it allows me to exercise my faith. I figure it this way, for every dime the Lord needs, He gives me 90 cents. Not a bad deal! Show more Show less
