Hi I'm Mike

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got very lucky and married the most wonderful woman in the world in 2006 at age 25. I am the proud father of two. I've always had a love of building things and using my hands. In fact I began collecting power tools before the age of 10. I love to fix things and figure out how things work. In addition to building things, my hobbies include, wakeboarding, snowboarding, fourwheeling and playing tennis.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church so being a member has always been a way of life for me. My parents never forced me to attend church. Instead they set a great example by doing themselves what they wanted me to do and I followed along. Growing up a member of the church was easy for me because all of my friends were members and we all had the same standards and expectations. It wasn't until I served as a missionary in South Korea that I realized how fortunate my upbringing was. I saw just how good I had it and how easy my life was. Because I had surrounded myself with people who had the same standards, I never had temptations of drugs or alcohol. I never tried any of them and never had a desire to. As a missionary I was able to watch people who were not happy find themselves and happiness as they discovered the gospel. I have seen people's lives change for the better as they became members of the Mormon church. I can't imagine living any other way. I personally have come to the knowledge that the church is true but even if I didn't have that knowledge, I would still want to be a member just because of the guidance and direction the church provides as well as the standards that its members are expected to uphold bring such happiness and joy.

How I live my faith

My faith is an everyday way of living for me. I try in all I do to be a good example to everyone I come in contact with. I try to never get angry and I never curse. As I mentioned above, I have never tried any sort of drugs or alcohol nor have I had a desire to. I'm not the best at looking for opportunities to serve others but if someone ever needs something from me and they ask, I will do all I can to help them.
