Hi I'm mike.

I'm a Mormon. I am just a normal person that loves the gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I am a simple guy. I love to read, but not just new books. I am fascinated in classic literature. I love poetry and write some almost everyday. I love the beauty that is found in everything from books to Broadway. I tend to make many mistakes, but also I try to rectify those. If you see me on the street you would just glance over me because I really am just a normal guy. i like to talk to people and get to know others with diverse backgrounds, so that I can see hwo different we all are but also how in the end we are all similar.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. My parents are members and there families back for quite a bit, but there came a time when I had to decide what I believed in. I never doubted the existence of a deity I just didn't know which religion had it right. It was clear to me that only one church could have it right because Christ taught that there was only one gospel and that He would be present in that church. I spent quite a while searching for the truth praying and hoping that it would be made known to me. One thing I knew that God wanted me to do was go on a a mission, so quite simply I left for a mission in the only way and only church I was well acquainted with. One night as I was saying my prayers I asked God to tell me what was right and why I was going to be a missionary. Tears came to my eyes as I fervently asked for the truth. I didn't want to serve a mission if what I was saying was false. That night a miracle happened and my heart opened and the Holy Ghost filled me, and I felt whole. I really felt like I was all there and nothing was missing. I asked God which church was true. I asked him if I should serve a mission. I asked him if I was pleasing him as my Father in Heaven. He answered all my questions, and He continues answering me. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the church of God because He told me so. That is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by striving to do good. I try my absolute best each day to keep the commandments and when I fail I try to repent as quickly as possible. I do my best to treat every person I come in contact with as a friend. I try to love all people the same. I live so that I can appreciate the sacrifice of my Savior and remember him always. I know that this seems like a big deal and I must look like an over achiever but it isn't that hard. It really is easy when you remember that God loves us. That we are His children and every attribute that He has we have the potential to possess and perfect. If we can do it why not?
