Hi I'm Mike

I grew up in San Bernardino, California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a retired high school teacher. I like family history. My wife and I have six children. I like to raise a garden. I like to read.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother was a Methodist and my Dad was Mormon. My mother reared me as a Methodist. My Dad was okay with that. When my Dad started attending church, I started getting interested in the Mormon Church. I was attending one church one week and the other one the next. I eventually realized that I needed to choose one or the other. The teachings of the Mormons rang true to me. I decided to join the Mormons. Membership in the Mormon church has been a wonderful thing for me. I know that God lives and that Jesus is The Christ , the Son of the Living God, that He is my personal Savior, and that He suffered and died for me. This means that I can be saved from my sins and live with Heavenly Father and my Savior and my family forever.

How I live my faith

I attend church each Sunday. I visit and watch over five families. I help people search out their family trees. I am the treasurer of the the local volunteer fire department . I work in one of the church's temples. I play the piano for one of the meetings.
