Hi I'm Michael

I'm an athlete. I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some stuff about me I enjoy long walks on the beach. I love sports - basketball and snowboarding is what I live for. Music has always been a HUGE part of my life. I listen to music everywhere I go. I sing along to my music in the car, and in the shower. Yes, I sing in the shower. I am currently serving a mission in the Michigan Lansing Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.   

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have come to know that the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that it is unique to the Mormon church. I have come to know this by pondering the scriptures, particularly the Book of Mormon, and praying about it's teachings to know if they were true. The Holy Ghost testified to me that the Book of Mormon is true and that the Prophet Joseph Smith Translated the Book of Mormon. I am Mormon because the doctrine that this church (Christ's Church) teaches makes perfect sense and we can discern that our Heavenly Father loves us all. I have felt his love through praying and developing a strong relationship with Him and my Savior. The Gospel has blessed my lives in more ways than I can even say.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively living the Commandments given to us, by regularly attending church and partaking the sacrament, and by being of service to my fellow man. Following these vital steps have blessed my life in so many ways. And my Heavenly Father has opened the windows of Heaven and poured out numerous blessings to me everyday.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I know personally that there is a god. If there was not a God, everything in this world would just be coincidence. We are not put here on this earth for no reason. There is a reason. It is not coincidence that this earth just happens to be the only planet that we know of that can support life. The beauty of this earth and everything therein, how it all is in order and works perfectly. This is no coincidence my friends. There is a higher power who created all. Who is alpha and omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. And that is our loving Heavenly Father and His beloved son - Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
