Hi I'm Michael

I'm a shy quirky guy trying to find my place in the world, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in Arizona most of my life. i have a love for being out side hiking, swimming, running, SOMETHING! Not good at any of it though, i guess that is what makes it all so interesting. there is always room for improvement i love my family. i have two you know. the results of a divorce, but it makes it so i have two Moms and two Dads looking out for me. kinda annoying at times, but hey in the end who wouldn't want more people to love them.

Why I am a Mormon

My family started going to church when i turned 14. the people were so real, so caring. i felt at home. i didn't stay with it long though. i started doing my own thing. trying things my way. i shouldn't really be surprised, but i realized i wasn't happy. not as much as before. im a member of this church because i was asked to put myself aside and ask God if it is true. it was hard, but i finally did, and i got my answer from a loving Father in Heaven. that is what i have learned about truth. it really doesn't matter what we think, that will never change the fact that you chose to disobey the law of gravity and go 80mph next to a cliff and are now flying off of it. the truth is that Our Father in Heaven is real, and He chose Joseph Smith to represent Him in our day, just as he chose Moses back in the day.  so thats why i'm a Mormon, because its true. i dont know another way to say it. its the only complete gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth. why would we want anything less?

How I live my faith

Right now i am serving as a missionary in Pennsylvania trying to do all the good i possibly can. As a missionary I invite people to come closer to Jesus Christ by talking and discussing His gospel WITH them, not TO them. there is a difference. Not only that, but we do a lot of helping with small projects like spliting wood, painting, yard work, you know all the good stuff. The best part about doing all of this for people is that no matter how hard I try to not let this all help me, it does anyway. And i cant really argue with that too much i guess.
