Hi I'm Michael

I live in Mobile Alabama and have the most beautiful wife and I work hard and just love the life God has given me and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a husband of a beautiful and wonderful wife we got married In 2011 and have loved being with her ever since then I work at a stainless steel mill where I supervise a team in packaging and shipping of stainless coils and skids. I enjoy in my free time working on our house and playing sports like football, baseball, basketball or really now anything that keeps me active .

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints all of my life I served a mission to Ohio Cleveland for the church and the reason why I continue to practice this religion is really it makes so much sense to me as a teenager I was I would say lost and confused as I think it is for at least most teenagers and during those hard years I got away from the church but once I realized I was going down a place I didn't want to go anymore I decided to start for the first time actually read the Book of Mormon and I then prayed to know if it was true if everything that I learned growing up was true and I was brought to tears when I felt an overwhelming since of peace and for me the knowledge to know that it was in fact true and has continued to a greater knowledge of the savior Jesus Christ and to know that God lives and watches over His children.

How I live my faith

Right now I am in my ward what is called the Ward Mission Leader and what it is that I do is I have weekly meeting with the full time missionaries in our area and leaders at our church, also known as a ward, and how we can help those in the ward or the members reach out to people as we ourselves reach out to people who need help weather it be temporal, physical or spiritual even all of the above

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Michael
It is important to the church because the family is what will have the most impact in our lives if the parents understand and know how important the family is will help the children feel and know they are loved and wanted I know in my family I have felt the love from my parents even though us kids will still make the decisions we make the values that we are taught when we are little will stick with us for all of our lives I know the family we have in our life is the family the Lord wanted us to be in to learn from to gain experiences from and then make our own choices that will help us draw closer to our Heavenly Father.
