Hi I'm Mike

I love to laugh. I'm teaching English in China. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the 7th of 11 children and as such I've learned to be loud and outgoing in order to get myself heard. I love to socialize with people. I also have a deep love for animals, dogs especially. I recently married the most fantastic girl and we are currently teaching English in China and having a blast. I love being with my family, teaching, playing sports, photography, reading, riding motorbikes, and working on my car. And let there be no doubt about it, I'm a proud Canadian!

Why I am a Mormon

My family means everything to me. Being brought up in the church I have been able to witness firsthand the effects that gospel principles have had on my family. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the reason our family is so close. We know that we will be together forever and because of that knowledge we strive to love one another and always be there for each other. I have gained a witness for myself from the spirit of God that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Christ's true church on the earth today. This knowledge has helped me in every aspect of my life. I know who I am; I'm a child of God. I know that I came to this earth to be tried and tested, and that hopefully one day I can return and live with my loving Heavenly Father. I know that I have been sealed to my wife for eternity, and as a result our marriage will last beyond the grave, I can be with her forever! That knowledge keeps me going, offers me hope when I'm feeling down, and encourages me to always be better. I'm a Mormon because Heavenly Father wants be to be!

How I live my faith

My faith is my life, so I live it everyday. I know what Christ did for me, that he suffered and died for my sins. That is such a humbling thought and it makes me want to do better everyday. I try to mirror Christ's life with my own. I want to be more charitable, more kind, more humble, and more caring. I try to do this as I go about my day by giving service where I can, offering a smile to those who look like they need it, and trying to have a happy disposition about me at all times.
