Hi I'm Mike

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Orange County , California. I was a Deputy Building Inspector

About Me

I am currently in college full time, and working two jobs there on campus in the book store, and in the cafe. I study to become a Certified Personal Trainer. I am doing this for myself, and then to help other also. I am divorced, and just got my temple recommend from my bishop. I have four children 32, 30, 23, and 16. None of them live with me unfortunatley. I love them all. I was an allstar baseball player in little league. A boxing coach for the USA Boxing team. I used to run 52 mile races and countless marathons(26.2 miles).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was taken off the streets by a Mormon family, and went to church with them, and took the lessons, and believed. I have been grafetful to that family everyday of my life since then. It is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Being with Mormons is like being with family. It was like they all took me in, and I am eternally grateful for the heaven on earth, I feel when I am around my Brethren. I have been there for them always too!

How I live my faith

I live by the Word of Wisdom. I help the poor. I stick up for my religion at all times, not when it is conveinient, and i stick up for God and Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. I don't know everything about God and what he is doing, but i always keep the faith.

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

Mike
The 10% goes to helping the poor and building new churches. Everyone that holds a position of any importance at all in the church, does so in service to the Lord, and no one is paid in money. They are paid with a smile from someone that needed help. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Mike
Jesus will return someday, and the restoration of his church prepares his way for his return. Jesus visited people all over the world around the time of his resurection. Just as The Bible was written over in the Middle East, about Jesus coming (The Old Testament), and the life of Jesus (The New Testament). There are also Writings of the accounts of Jesus in other parts of the world. These Writings are in The Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
