Hi I'm Michael

I'm from St. Louis Missouri, I love Ultimate Frisbee and video production. I'm a student at BYU! I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I was born 3 months premature and weighed 1.5 pounds! I believe in miracles! I was raised in a great LDS family with wonderful parents and siblings. I am so thankful for my family! They are always there to support and encourage me! I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee and baseball as well as video production on the side. I love watching movies and spending time with my family. After high school, I was attending Brigham Young University, but I decided to set aside two years to serve as a missionary. I served in the California Roseville Mission! Since my mission, I have returned to BYU to continue my studies. That is a little about me in a nutshell!

Why I am a Mormon

Its just a great way to live your life! I was raise in the church and it has always taught me to do good things. I remember the time when I knelt down to know if the Book of Mormon was true for myself. I remember having a feeling of warmth within my body and a peace knowing that this book is from God! For me this was a confirmation that the Book of Mormon and the Church was true! It has made me a happier person! I feel like it has helped me to have a better relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I have had great examples in my life of great men and women who have taught me principles that will help me have a happier life. I am especially thankful for my mom and dad for all of their love and teaching me these great principles. I served as a missionary and shared with other people the same happiness that I have in my life. I am so thankful to have a knowledge of the plan that God has for us! I'm grateful for the blessing that families can be together forever. This has brought a lot of peace and comfort to me!

How I live my faith

I try to be an example to others. I try to lift and help other people when I can. I served as a missionary for the LDS church in the Roseville California mission. Before my mission I had the great opportunity to be in many leadership positions in my youth. These experiences were building blocks for me and have helped me learn and grow. I also had a the great opportunity to serve as a home teacher with my dad!

It is a companion to the Bible. The Book of Mormon teaches principles of how to live the commandments and have a happy life! Show more Show less
