Hi I'm Michael

I have a beautiful wife, 8 children, and 10 grandchildren. I am a partner in a CPA firm, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a beautiful wife, 8 children, and 10 granchildren. I am a partner in a CPA firm. I was born in Utah and moved to the 4 corners area as a youth. After graduation I attended BYU, served a mission in Peru, and returned to BYU to finish my education. My greatest joy is my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a loving LDS home where we were taught to honor our parents and love the Lord. I felt spiritual stirrings in my heart as a teenager on my first visit to the temple in Mesa, Arizona. As I lived the principles, kept the commandments, and read the scriptures I came to know in my heart that the teachings helped me improve and kept me out of mischief. As a mature adult I can look back over my life and the lives of my friends to see where following the Savior's message truly has brought peace and hope.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the steps that are tried and true. Loving, teaching, and working alongside my family members deepens and strengthens our relationships. Serving others with shovels and rakes, lending a listening ear, or a shoulder to cry on, and sacrificing a little time to attend church have all enriched my life. I keep my language clean, I do not smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs, and I shun pornography. On bad days and on good days, I like to listen to the beautiful strains of sacred music. Every blessing in my life can be attributed to a loving Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ.
