Hi I'm Michael

I love teaching, music, and motorcycles. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 My wife and I just adopted our first child after nine years of struggle. It's the best thing we've ever done besides marry one another. I teach school for a living and love to sing and play guitar with my brothers. I love working on and riding my motorcycles a Harley Softail Deluxe and a '68 Honda CL.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in this church, although my parents were baptized when I was a year old. It has been the rock of my life. I can directly credit EVERY good thing that has happened to me in my life to being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I was 18, my faith was questioned by a very close and trusted friend. I knew I had to find out for myself whether this church was true or not. After reading the New Testament for the first time, I prayed to know whether or not Jesus Christ really was who he said he was. My prayer was answered and I came to know that he was my Savior and Redeemer and loved me for who I am. After that experience, I began to study the Book of Mormon also for the first time. I went to my Heavenly Father with the same question about my Savior. Then I asked to know if that book really was another testament of Jesus Christ or if it was a fraud perpetrated by the evil one. The answer came as firmly to my mind as my previous answers "You know, Michael. You've always known." I had the sense that by "always," I was being told that even before I came to this earth, I knew. This was only the beginning of my testimony of the truthfulness of this church. It has grown, and been tested, almost every day since.

How I live my faith

 I have served in a number of positions in this church, including working with the youth, helping to preside over a congregation of university-age students, and working with the smallest of kids. It is wonderful to serve, not for pay, but for greater treasures that come from above, and are laid up above for me.
