Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Californian, Honduran, I love playing the guitar and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Just a few things about me, Im 21 years old and going to college studying business. I was born and raised in sunny Orange County California, but my mom is from Honduras so im honduran too. I love playing the guitar and going to the beach, music and water are my life! I also just returned from serving as a missionary in Texas.

Why I am a Mormon

God has always played a big role in my life. When I was younger my parents separated, leaving me very confused and angry. I could not understand why God would let that happen, why He would let my family break apart.My mother taught me though the importance of forgiveness and repentence through her words and actions. She taught me that the only way to happiness was through living the gospel of Jesus Christ. Everything in this church is centered on Jesus Christ, and how we can be happy because of what He has done for us. I know the Book of Mormon to be a true witness of our Savior because i has seen and felt in my own life the power that comes from the book. I know that Joseph Smith really was called by God to bring back Christ's church. And the way that i know these things is not just because someone told me, or it's the faith of my parents, but I know because I asked God in prayer, and he answered me through the Holy Ghost. It is becasue of that sweet witness that can only come from God that I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith is by trying to do all the little things we should be doing as christians. Being nice to people, helping out everyone we can, just trying to follow the example of the Savior. Im not going to say I am 100 perfect, i have a lot of faults just like anyother person, but I do try my best to be the best person that I can. Repenting when I need to, and making the changes nessary to progress in this life. One of the ways I try to gage if im doing something worth while by asking myself, "Is Hevenly Father going to be proud of me?"

Who was Joseph Smith?

Michael
 Joseph Smith to us as Latter-Day Saints was a prophet of God. Just like all the prophets you find in the Bible, his purpouse was to do the same thing that all the other prophets did, that is, to bring us closer to our Hevenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. We do not worship him or anything thing like that. The reason why his name is brought up so much in the church is because it was through Joseph Smith that Jesus Christ brought back all the things He taught when He was here 2000 years ago. And also it was through Joseph Smith that God brought back that same power and authority that all the other prophets and apostles had to do things like baptism.
