Hi I'm Mike Carpenter

I'm a brother and a friend. I'm a student at BYU. I love Naruto. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Mike and I'm a Mormon! I attend school at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I have four sisters and no brothers. I really like computers and technology, but my real dream is to become the Hokage! I'm from Virginia, and when I was 19 I served a two-year mission serving others and teaching about the Gospel of Jesus Christ around Tempe, Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

Jesus Christ is my Savior. I love Him and I try to look to Him in all that I do. I mess up, but I know that through His Atonement I can repent and return to live with Him again. That's why I'm Mormon: Jesus Christ setup a church during His mortal ministry to help others use the Atonement, and He has restored that same church today as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I mess up; even when I know what I'm going to do is wrong, I do it anyways. With the Lord's help, I can overcome anything. As I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ given through Latter-day Prophets, Apostles, and other church leaders, I steadily improve myself.
