Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Marine, I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Utah. Cant get enough of the Marine Corp. I am the 5' 7" white guy that loves basketball and cannot jump. I like being outside and just having a good ol' time with the fam. I am now serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Wisconsin and Im loving it.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I have tested the principles I learn and I have asked my Heavenly Father to know that they are true. Quite simply, I have felt that this is where I am happy. Granted I grew up in the church, I hadnt actually read the Book of Mormon until I was 18. As I began to study more about what this church teaches, I actually started to be happier, I would even say it changed all aspects of my life. And throughout the whole process I have involved my Father in Heaven and He has told me through my thoughts and feelings and of course His spirit, that what I learn is true. Another beautiful blessing is the belief that God still continues to talk to each of us today and especially guides us through a prophet. We will always continue to learn from a loving Savior and a Heavenly Father! I wouldnt want to be anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I like to talk to my Heavenly Father every day. So I start off the day with a prayer. I like to talk to Him and He likes to talk to me, so its good. I also like to read from the Book of Mormon. There is so much truth in that book and I get something I need everytime I read. But im not perfect at those things and definitely a lot more, but I strive to do better each day and it makes life fun. I am actually in the process of serving a full time mission for the Lord. I get to share the happiness His gospel has brought my life. When you have something this good, you gotta share it!
