Hi I'm Mike

I love to play video games. I am bilingual. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Mike. I grew up in Utah. I have played the piano since i was 8 but found more of an interest in video games, especially RPGs. Playing video games by myself and with friends and family is something I have loved doing since I was old enough to hold a controller. I absolutely love instrumental music though, especially the piano, the harpsichord, the violin, and any other string instrument. I love learning languages because it allows me to be able to communicate with more people than I ever could before.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and baptized when I was 8 years old. Throughout the early years of my life I relied on the testimonies of my parents and other family members to know that the church is true but I never really new for myself that it was true. When I was 14 I had the opportunity to attend a week long youth activity at Brigham Young University and I learned for myself while I stayed there, that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church, through the many feelings I had of warmth and happiness received from the many testimonies I heard. Throughout the rest of my life I have received peace, happiness, and direction through the knowledge of God's plan for me whenever I was doing what's right and whenever I read the Scriptures and followed God's commandments. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am serving all day long, 7 days a week, for two years to give others the opportunity to know for themselves of the truthfulness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

What is faith?

Mike
Faith, as it says in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, is to "hope for things which are not seen, which are true". When they say that faith is "to hope", they don't mean that we need to have the kind of unsure desire that we usually associate with the word "hope". We need to doubt NOTHING in order to have true hope and faith, believing with all our hearts that what we have faith in is true. Show more Show less
