Hi I'm Mike

I'm a husband and father. I'm a teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, and tennis. I sing, play piano and percussion, and am learning to play guitar. I speak Spanish fluently. I worked in international business before becoming a teacher. I like to cook, write poetry, and read. I love my country. I am happily married and we are the parents of six beautiful children. I love spending time with my family daily and traveling together whenever we can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I believe it is His true Church on the earth today. In it I find the answers to life's most important questions, including how I can return to live with my Father in Heaven again and with my family for eternity. There is nothing I desire more. I can't imagine raising my children in this world without the truths and standards of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ to guide and protect us. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that He is my Savior. I love Him and want to serve Him all the days of my life. As I strive to follow Him and keep His commandments, I am blessed with peace and joy through the trials of life. I feel His love and the power of His Atonement helping me overcome the obstacles I face. I see myself becoming the man I want to be.

How I live my faith

I strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in my daily life and live as He would have me live. I make my family my highest priority. I take every opportunity to learn the principles of the gospel and teach them to others, beginning in my home with daily personal and family scripture study and prayer. I try to be a good friend and neighbor. I serve in the Church in any capacity I'm called to. I visit the homes of members to strengthen and encourage them in their efforts to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I work to be an influence for good in the lives of children and the youth. My own family is strengthened and blessed as I take time to serve the Lord by serving others. The covenants I have made give me strength to live my faith amid the temptations and distractions of the world.
