Hi I'm Mike

I was born in Salt Lake City. I have been a member of the church for 35 years. I practice dentistry in Mesa, Arizona.

About Me

I am Married to a beautiful wife and a father of twins, boy and girl. My family is my life. Our little ones came to us through the wonderful blessing of adoption. There is no greater blessing or privilege then that of a father and husband. I am an avid water skier, love all sports but especially my Ohio State Buckeyes. I grew up in Sandy, Utah with 3 sister and a brother. Our family is very close and we love spending time together. I love my career as a dentist as I have the ability to serve and help others each day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon because I believe firmly in what it teaches me. I love the values and love what I feel from being a member of this church. I have so many friends because of this gospel. Where ever I have lived I have instant connections with people, making life a lot more fun and enriching. I can always find something in common with many members of the church. The family values are very important to me. In a difficult world it is nice to have values to live by and to be accountable for.

How I live my faith

I live my faith first and foremost by example. I am blessed to have great family and friends surrounding me in my life. This has helped my faith grow each day. This gospel has given me a road map for life and I am fortunate to have it in my life.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

The only way we can know if anything is true or not is to ask the only person who will tell us. Our Heavenly Father. There is nothing sweeter then the feeling he provides us when we truly ask in faith if something is true or not. I was raised in the church and always told what was true but it wasn't until I asked in faith without doubting that I received my answer from my Heavenly Father and gained my own knowledge of the truth.
