Hi I'm Mike

I drove a truck for 47 years. I've been to all of the U.S. and Canada. I used to sail for NOA and the U of W. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to puzzle. They have to be 550 or less to fit on my board. When they are complete, I give them away. I am a cancer survivor. I have been cancer free since 2005. I have three children and four step-children. I love to cook, and I don't follow a recipe. I have caught the genealogy bug and I am always working on it. I have cheated death twice. I also love all sports and I used to play them and coach young men. When I was younger, I played almost every position in sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe it. I was raised in the Church. My mother was an organist and choir director for our congregation. I always enjoyed the music and participating in it. When I was 12 and ordained to the priesthood, I received my own personal confirmation that it was true. Through my bishop's attentive care to my family, I could feel the love of the Lord through His steward.

How I live my faith

I do my genealogy, and I feed my local sister missionaries. They encourage me to reach out. I frame the puzzles I make and give them to others so they can enjoy them and know that they are loved. I am trying to share the gospel with my children so it can bless their lives.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes, families can be together forever as long as you're righteous. That's why we do family history. Family history helps me study and research to connect my ancestors together. It teaches me more about my family and what they're about. I get excited about it. Without genealogy, I wouldn't know much about my family. I can get in contact with living family members and connect so that our relationships can continue beyond the grave. I give all the names that I find through my research to my brother and sister-in-law so that ordinances can be performed in the temple for them so we'll be together. Show more Show less
