Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Mike

I grew up in New Hampshire, I have 3 incredible kids, I mountain bike, I teach kids to skateboard and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 3 young girls and married to the love of my life. I enjoy Road and Mountain biking and occasionally I like to skateboard. I love to exercise with my wife and swim at the pool with the kids.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife and I got married civilly and we started thinking about having kids. My wife is LDS but I wanted nothing to do with it. I told the missionaries that I would only learn from the Bible and that is how they proceeded. They then challenged me to read and pray about the Book of Mormon as well. I started to do that and eventually after two years decided to experiment upon His word by being baptized. This was in 97 and my testimony has been a growing seed ever since. My new found faith has helped me through some very hard times and I am grateful for a patient wife and missionaries. That is the short story. We are now sealed in the temple and married for eternity.

How I live my faith

My family and I go to church every Sunday. I am an assistant clerk in our church and hometeach 2 families. I love home teaching and love being home taught. It brings the spirit to our home and I hope that I can do the same for the families I teach. I have had a number of callings with the church over my time as a member and it has taught me a number of skills I didn't know that I had.

Are Mormons Christians?

Gordon B. Hinckley, prior President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1995-2008), said: “We are Christians in a very real sense and that is coming to be more and more widely recognized. Once upon a time people everywhere said we are not Christians. They have come to recognize that we are, and that we have a very vital and dynamic religion based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. We, of course, accept Jesus Christ as our Leader, our King, our Savior...the dominant figure in the history of the world, the only perfect Man who ever walked the earth, the living Son of the living God. He is our Savior and our Redeemer through whose atoning sacrifice has come the opportunity of eternal life. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pray and worship in the name of Jesus Christ. He is the center of our faith and the head of our Church. The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ and witnesses of His divinity, His life, and His Atonement.” Show more Show less
