Hi I'm Mike

I grew up in Iowa. I became a Chiropractor. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a homesteading, mid-west, semi-retired chiropractor. We milk our cow, make butter, yogurt, and cheese, and we garden. Our youngest son is 22 and studies at BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I investigated the claims of the Church's representatives and found them true. For me that was a project. But it eventually came to prayer. And the experience that came to me through that was enough for me to firmly stake my eternal life on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I choose to follow Jesus, He who answered my prayers, eternally. That was 27+ years ago, and time and further blessings walking in His way has consistently strengthened my decision. I am grateful to have been found and to have become a part of His Church. Jesus Christ is my King. The Kingdom of God and His government is embodied on the Earth in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Jesus guides the leadership of The Church including The Prophet of God for the Whole Earth, Living Apostles, Bishops, etc., and among humans, there are no others truly of such authority, nor as trustworthy in matters of faith. And the Joy that I have received from this Holy relationship is beyond measure, and beyond all earthly value. He has deeply blessed me and my family through His grace. I hope for the same glorious discoveries and peace for you.

How I live my faith

To be a citizen in the Kingdom is such a glorious thing! Any service we get to be a part of therein is uplifting. I have helped the missionaries share the message of the True Church, worked in and led the men's group, taught Sunday School, sang in the choir, served as the local church leader, helped as a youth leader, helped clean snow from sidewalks, weeded flower beds, cleaned in the Church building, tithed, helped move neighbors in and out, consoled, rejoiced, married, buried, baptized, and blessed- and been blessed by- the Saints. There is no paid ministry in Christ's true Church. The members of the Kingdom are the servants of each other. And the best? The Spirit of the Lord accompanies service in and for the Kingdom- a spiritual peace and joyful blessing accompanies all we do for and with Him.
