Hi I'm Michael

I'm an Engineering student at Arizona State University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well like I said, I'm a student at ASU studying Aeronautical Engineering. Its tough, but I manage somehow. Besides being a student i am a parts delivery driver for an International Truck dealership. I drive around for hours at a time delivering parts to various truck repair shops around the area. When i'm not working on in school, I enjoy spending time with my wife, playing sports, playing video games, and doing activities outside. I just got married to a wonderful girl at the end of last year, it was the best decision i ever made. I also served a mission for my church in northern Germany in the Hamburg and Berlin areas.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know its true. When i was younger I would always hear stories of people's conversions. They had prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true and they had a miraculous experience confirming that it was true. For a long time, i had wondered if i really had a testimony because i had never had any great confirmation. It slowly dawned on me that as i lived the teachings of the church, read in the Book of Mormon, and attended church and other church activities i had feelings of peace and comfort that only the spirit can bring. It took me a while, but i realized that i knew it was true and now even though things are sometimes difficult, as life can be, i know that God and Jesus Christ are there and that they love me.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints i try my best to be an example of what i believe and be myself. I try to show that Mormons are pretty normal people. Through my church i have done many service projects and similar activities, i have done a lot of activities ranging from sorting food at various food banks to repairing hiking trails on a nearby mountain. I like being able to participate in these projects because i feel good that i was able to help others and do something for someone else instead of just me.
