Hi I'm Michael
I'm a writer, a drawer, a helping hand, a bringer of cheer, and I'm a Mormon.
I really find I have a hard time describing me, I'm not you're everyday person. I enjoy so much of life it's hard to know where to start. Difficulty and hardship are common to me. I see my savior's love everyday for myself and others. I enjoy creating new things and doing it with others. I have many talents, Indeed, I am a Jack of all trades and a master of none. I like cooking occasionally, If I can bake it, Great! if it looks too difficult I can't promise it will taste good. I'm working on being more active as I see it's a good thing to do. I also am getting ready for the next stage in my life as I am finishing serving a mission. and preparing to going to BYU-I. In short I would like to consider myself a hard worker and willing to work something to the end, though hard it may be. I feel a sense of helping others around me and even sacrificing a little regardless who i'm helping. One could say have you ever regretted being as kind as you like to be? I like to quote something I heard once "I've wept in the night. For the shortness of sight. That to somebody's need made me blind; But I never have yet. Felt a tinge of regret. For being a little too kind." I truly feel being good and doing good is simply enjoyable. and to top it all off I like to have fun doing it all. if I'm helping other smile and be happy and laugh it really adds to all I regularly do. and the Gospel has only deepened the joy and happiness felt from doing what I regularly do.
Why I am a Mormon
Though I was born into the church, I still at some point had to make the choice to follow it, and it's teachings. the decision was very vivid in my mind as I thought about it and wondered "I could not do it anymore." "I don't have to believe this" as I thought on this a feeling entered me that I could never forget. "you know it's true!" a voice said. "You know it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ in it's fullest! why turn away?" it was at that point in my life I decided to move forward and be a part of this church. as I continued, I learned of the Saviors deep and abiding love for me and even for others. it's that same feeling that pushed me on my mission to keep going and keep trying no matter how hard things seemed to be. A quote I love and feel it describes every born in the church member is: "Every Man is backed up to the wall of faith, and there he must make his stand." (Ezra Taft Benson) In all of life's journeying with all the things that can occur and do occur, Never have I received more strength from anything else in this world in those times of need than the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is the restored gospel.
How I live my faith
This is such an enjoyable thing to talk about, I try to live my faith in every action I make. simple, Yet difficult. but really I want everyone around me to be Happy and in a good mood. I feel sad when I see others sad, because life is good in anyway you look at it you got to enjoy whats in front of you at the moment. otherwise it will be hard to appreciate the moments when it's not so bad. Helping others is one thing I feel allows me to live my faith, giving someone something that allows them to feel of worth is valuable to me. and them hopefully feeling to do the same is even better. most people seek riches to help themselves, or secure for them and family good living. I would love to have it because I could help so many people. I've been pondering over how to continue living the Gospel in my life. and it seems that those moments in which I ponder that, I find something I can do to increase living this Gospel. and now as a missionary that plays in so well with what I'm doing. Teaching and preaching allows others to feel Gods love in their life. and brings them to the savior. I try every day to do better than the day before, so that others see how much I love Jesus Christ and how much he loves them. I always look at others as what they can become, not who they currently are. looking for the good in others and to help them see it and help them build on it, is one way I've come to meet some of the best people I know. Everyone has value that no one else has.
