Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Simi Valley, Ca. I am self employed looking to better myself in the church and meet some new people

About Me

I am outgoing, fun, and take to many chances. My hobbies include; dirt bike riding, playing chess, working out, hiking, beach, drives, reading, amusement parks. I struggle with finding what works for me. I run my own business, i am single and find it difficult to share who i am with others. I don't take much for granted. I live with a pacemaker and am on my third one, I also have had two brain surgeries. I believe i am here for a good reason.

Why I am a Mormon

When I met this lovely woman, she introduce me to this church, where she was born into this religion. I investigated the church and was moved by the strong feeling of the Spirit. I was taught by missionaries and finished within 6 weeks and got baptized on December 13, 2009. I was amazed that this church wasn't like the others, in which this only principle was what brought me to the Mormon Church. The Principal of Tithing. I was so use to paying tithing in front of other people and felt it was wrong in doing that. When I discovered that you can pick up a tithing slip from outside the Bishops Office, and send money to missionaries, general, tithing, for fasting it overwhelmed and my feelings of why this church stands out to the world as being different. I believe in this Church and believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of this Church. I believe in the Restoration of The Gospel and also believe that Jesus Christ died for all man kinds sins.

How I live my faith

I recently moved into the Santa Susana 2nd ward from Canyon Country 2nd Ward, which are both in California. I am actually struggling with my faith at this point in my life as I am a single man again and feel like my life is not going as planned. I have been struggling for over 4 months now and going to church alone is very hard for me. My family doesn't believe in this religion and I personally live among a lot of negativity. I also live among a lot of peer pressure which i find difficult and it's very hard to endure what my lifestyle use to be like. I don't home teach as of yet, and I haven't made any new friends where i am at. I believe if i surrender all my bad habits that the lord's plan will work out for the better. I am skeptical at this point in my life, being alone again. I have no children and I have never been married. I am looking for a companion that shares the same values and morals that I do. All I can say is that I am hopeful that I can find what Heavenly Father wants me to find and that is eternal life and hopefully a woman to marry.
