Hi I'm Michael

I grew up and have lived in Rigby, Idaho my whole life. I graduated highschool in 2010 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy snowboarding in the winter i've been doing that for about 7 years now. I also enjoy playing video games with friends family and people around the world. I also enjoy the out doors and things like hunting, fishing, and camping. I just got done with highschool and am still desiding on what college to go too. Im serving in the Jackson, Mississippi Mission so i have till after to deside where i want to go to college. I also enjoy talking to my friends and making new ones :) im the 2nd youngest out of 5 kids in my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Well the reason that im mormon is pretty simple actually. I've grown up with people that are also mormons and i've grown up and seen people that arent. . I've seen the consicuences of not following this gospels teachings. some of my family have gone through hardache and distrot over things that could have been avoided if they were living this gospel. Im not saying that im perfect. I've had my own experiances with Trial; and error. and i can see the difference. while living this gospel, More good things are braught to pass. Im happier and Im so greatful that i got to receive my own testimony that this is and will be the only complete and true church upon the face of the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to passivly show others that i am a follower of jesus christ. Im always striving to live better and threw living better i can see that im more happier because of it. I strive to always do my best in my callings in this church.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Michael
No it is an opprotunity to share the gospel to all the world. generally men can serve missions at the age of 19. and Women can serve missions at the age of 21. Missions are completly voluntary and missionaries arent paid for their services, But they do recieve blessings. For some it is a great sacrifice but it is also a wonderful blessing to share the truth and knowlege that Mormons have. Show more Show less

Michael
The Book of mormon is another Testimant that Jesus Christ is our savior and redeemer. It's a record of Gods dealings with the people in the America's from 600 B.C. to 400 A.D. and from reading this book; Anyone can know from it that Jesus is the Christ, That Jospeh Smith was a man that god chose to restore his church once again upon the face of the earth. and what people must do to have Peace and happiness in this life and eternal salvation in the life to come.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Michael
Mormon Missionaries proselyte because people have agency - the ablitiy to choose and from seeing the blessings in their lives and they want to share that happiness, those blessings with others. They arent teaching new doctrine but more so being the mouth peice for the lord and his church. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Michael
I think one of the easiest ways realize that there is a god is to look at the Beauty of this world. The flowers, Trees, Ocean, Space, Life, and people; Theres no way it could all fit so perfectly. Its from gods hand. We're all peices of gods puzzle =) (take a moment and see how all peices fit so good together) Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Michael
How you come to know that Mormonism is true is by Reading The Book of Mormon and Then Praying to God to know if its words are true, the Principles it teaches are true, by Living what the Book of Mormon teaches; In doing so if you get a feeling of peace of comfort, thats God telling you through the Holy Ghost that this work or 'Mormonism' is true.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Michael
Mormons dont have paid clergy because thats not what god wanted. Jesus christ didnt go around and preach for money. He preached because he loved everyone. I think giving service to others and to the lord is just one more way to really show our sincerity and our willingness to sacrifice our all for our god. Show more Show less
