Hi I'm Mike

I grew up in Utah, currently living in sunny Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married to my beautiful wife. We have six lovely children ranging from 10 years old to a baby that is 3 months old. I love to play games and hang out with my family. I love to play golf and try to get out as much as possible with my busy schedule. I work full time in the education industry and teach courses for a local university as well. I am also pursuing my Doctorate in Management in Organizational Leadership. Between work, family, and school, there is not a lot of spare time. :) A wise man once told me regarding my busy life, "You won't be great at any one thing, however if you can learn to prioritize, you can be pretty good at all of them." This is how I am trying to live my busy life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it gives me direction and peace. I am a better husband and father because of the principles taught. I know that when I obey and try to do my best, that the Lord blesses me. I know that Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and provides opportunities for us to be happy. I could not imagine going through the many challenges and obstacles of life without having the gospel. The knowledge that I know that families are forever allows for me to obtain the inner peace when love ones pass away and courage to know that I will see them again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in the church. I currently teach a gospel class where we study topics like scripture study, prayer, and prophets. In the past I have worked with the youth as a Scout Master. I loved to go on camp-outs and work on merit badges with the boys. This was a blessing in my life. I hope that I live my faith in the example that I set in my profession and those that I meet.
