Hi I'm Mike

I was raised Catholic but converted to the Mormon church. I was born in Dayton and raised around Spring Valley.

About Me

I am a convert from Catholicism and was baptized in 2008. I have a daughter who is 20. I like to play chess and like sciences. I have seen God's power in my life in very meaningful ways since joining the Church. He has worked miracles in my life I never thought would ever happen like helping me to quit smoking and drinking. All the temptation to ever take those up again is nonexistent. I became disabled this year, (2012), and can't work so I got a bit of time on my hands so I started writing poetry. I will post the appropriate ones here if I can. Others I have written are just a bit too puerile for this venue. I write nothing obscene or suggestive, just a bit juvenile sometimes. :-)

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that this is the true Church restored to the Earth and have had proof from my experiences since joining. God has been more influential in my life now than at any other time that I can recall. I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that Church President Monson is a seer and revelator and that the LDS Church is the true Church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to attend sacrament meeting every week. I also home teach with a companion. But mostly I pray for guidance and strength and so far, I have not been disappointed. I endeavor to be an example to those around me of a child of God and do my best to obey the commandments of God.
