Hi I'm Mike

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, a father, a grandfather and absolutely love all of the wonderful things that go with it. I enjoy cars, motorcycles, trucks and really anything with an engine. I have set landspeed records and currently enjoy motorcycle drag racing. My work involves computerized machine tools and related technologies and I have also worked with diesel engines and industrial transmissions. Participating in problem solutions that help others have a better day gives me great satisfaction.

Why I am a Mormon

The truth of the restored gospel has given me real freedom in this world and in my mind. The recognition of life as a path with eternal prospects for growth and fulfillment helps to guide my choices and correct my course. I recognize the beauty and nobility in my wife, my family, my friends and my associates. Feeling the love of my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ give me hope and a desire to do something better each day. I realize the purpose in my challenges and in my successes and have a desire for others to have the same benefit and peace in their lives.

How I live my faith

In my church service I have had the opportunity to work with and teach children, young people and adults. I truly enjoy the opportunity to visit families and individuals in their homes; discussing the teachings of Christ, the challenges and opportunities of life as well as the success and growth of young people in education, athletics, music, scouting and many other worthwhile endeavors. Although I have been married for more than 30 years, I currently have the opportunity of participating in teaching and activities supporting those who are single adults. Some of these have not been married, some have lost spouses to death and some to divorce. Their faith and tenacity as individuals and as a group is inspiring. I have really grown to love and appreciate them for who they are and for their service to others. For me, it is a great pleasure to see others succeed in their efforts. Whether at home, with my neighbors, at church, at work or in my other extracurricular activities, my participation or observation of individuals and groups accomplishing constructive and beneficial things is very fulfilling. In my motorsports activities, I have chosen not to participate in racing on Sunday because of my belief in Sunday worship. I am deeply appreciative of the support and respect I have received from my associates by my choices and do my best to stand with them in their efforts.
