Hi I'm Mike

I'm a single dad, work full time, go to school half time and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a full time single dad to a wonderful little girl. I recently moved back near my hometown to help take care of my mother and to also reconnect with friends and relatives. I spent the last 28 years living on the west coast, mostly near Santa Barbara, California and Portland, Oregon.

Why I am a Mormon

From a very young age, I have asked question of people that were religious leaders. One of the questions I had was, "Why aren't there prophets today?" "Why do we do the things that we do?" I received very few answers. I lived my life wandering around looking for something that truly makes me happy. I looked everywhere but never found it. I met someone who was very special to me that introduced me to the church. I was stubborn about accepting it, but once I felt the Spirit tell me that the church is true and that I have found what I have been looking for all my life. I only went through 14 sets of missionaries.

How I live my faith

My current calling is Sunday School president. I love my calling and try to magnify it as best I can. I enjoy attending my priesthood meetings and try to attend the temple every other month, mostly because of the distance.
