Hi I'm Mike

I've raised cows and kids, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I was born and raised on a cattle ranch and have always had a love of livestock. I have a wife and three sons and two granddaughters. I like baseball, warm weather, and ice cream. We recently sold our ranch and am now down to a small acreage with only twenty cows. I am looking forward to finally doing things that we have never done before as a family due to the demands of the ranch,like fishing and going places. We have planted a small berry patch and we grow sweet corn for our own use and for sale. I am also trying to learn how to trade foreign currencies which is totally frustrating and kinda fun. I hope to someday make the move from cow trader to money trader. I love to learn especially about gospel topics. I really love to teach the things I am able to learn.  

Why I am a Mormon

 I was lucky enough to have been born into the church. But like everyone else there comes a point in your life when just being born a Mormon isn't enough. I am Mormon because I want to be. I appreciate the values of the church. I know there is safety in the church by following the leaders counsel. I am Mormon because I have felt the spirit bear witness to me that it is the right thing to do, and that by being obiedient to the teachings of the church I can return to my Heavenly Father with my family. 

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by being honest in the way I deal with others. I live my faith by visiting the sick and doing my best to relieve the burdens that are placed on others. I don't consider myself better than others because I am a Mormon, just better off because I am a Mormon. I live my faith by sharing it with those that will listen, but respect their agency to choose for themselves. I live my faith by being an example of what I believe a Mormon should be. I live my faith by going to church every week and living the teachings of the church during the week.
