Hi I'm Mike

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Dentist, enjoy spending time in the outdoors camping, whitewater rafting, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of this church, however like all members I was encouraged to make sure that I came to the knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel on my own. For me it truly came as I was making the decision of whether to serve a mission or just continue going to school. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know of it's truthfulness as well as the direction that I should take in my life concerning missionary service. I received an answer of the truthfulness of the gospel and an answer that missionary service was what the Lord intended for me. I received a call to serve as a missionary in the Texas Houston East Mission where I met some of the most wonderful people in my life. There is not a day in my life that I am not grateful for the 2 years that I spent in Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana serving the people there.

How I live my faith

My faith and activity in the church consumes a great deal of my time. Currently I have been asked to oversee the Young Mens program of our ward (congregation). I oversee all of the 12-18 year old young men, but mostly work directly with the 16-18 year olds. Working with the youth has been a great experience for me since, according to my wife, even though I have gotten older, I never really grew up. We meet regularly every Wednesday night for activities that we try to center around helping the boys learn skills to help them in the future. As a church we utilize the Boy Scouts of America program in helping the boys to become better men. As an Eagle Scout myself I feel that the scouting program does a wonderful job in helping young men learn vital skills to help them throughout there lives.
