Hi I'm Michael Hasson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love building things, running, and spending time with my family. One of my favorite hobbies is woodturning. I love taking a rough piece of wood and working it into a nice vase, bowl, or other decoration.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I was born in the Church, I'm going to re-title this section "Why I'm Still a Mormon". It is plain to me to see that there is a God, and that He created us and all things. Because this is real to me, what else matters except learning His will and obeying it? I have no doubt that God wants us to know what we're supposed to do, which is why I believe in organized religion. We all know Jesus Christ was a real person who lived on the earth. The powerful influence of God, through the Holy Spirit, has clearly helped me to see that Jesus is our Lord, and that we need to follow Him. Everybody also knows that Christ established His Church while on the earth. So where is that Church now? I don't believe every church is the Lord's Church. They can't be, because they all teach different things. There is only one God, and there should only be one church, and one doctrine. I am still a Mormon because that same powerful influence that helped me to see that God is real and that Jesus Christ is His Son, has also made it known to me (in many great and small ways) that The Church if Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's true Church. I believe all of it. The Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith. Current revelation through living prophets. It all rings true to the deepest part of me. So why am I still a Mormon? How can I not be knowing these things? It makes perfect sense to me logically, and in my heart. I'm am a person who only admires things that bring real results. I don't like things that are just for show. I have only seen real results being a member of this Church, particularly in the most important parts of life.

How I live my faith

I love being active in this Church; visiting people, helping out with service projects, attending Church meetings, and doing all I can to help it grow. I want Heavenly Father to know that I love and appreciate Him. The Church facilitates many ways for me to show it. I always have a great sense of fulfillment as I live my faith.
