Hi I'm Michael Alexandre

I joined the Church as a young married man living in Clagary Alberta Canada.

About Me

My wife and I moved from Alberta Canada to Nashville TN in 1980 with our 7 children where we were active members of the Church. Recently after retiring my wife and I have relocated to Lincoln NE to live with our 8th child, her husband and chidren. Since her husband is in school at UNL we anticipate another move when he graduates. In the meantime, not enjoying being retired, I have returned to school at a junior college to study Computer Aided Design. My original degree is Mechanical Engineering but I spent my career in the oil and gas exploration business and now would like to persue my original intent in mechanical design. We love the Lord, the LDS Church and life and look forward to continue service by going on a mission in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up knowing that there was a God in heaven but did not know where to find him. I attended both a very fundamental Baptist Church and the much more liberal United Church as a youth and young man but met the Church while in University and immediately recognized it as the way the Lord would have established a church for mankind. After 45 years as an active member of the Church I can still say that I know by the Spirit that it is the Church established by the Lord God and run on the earth under the direction of apostles and prophets.

How I live my faith

Up until a week or two ago I was a Scout Leader in the church but have now accepted a call in another organization. Have always participated in one way or another in callings in the Church.
