Hi I'm Michael

I'm 21 years old and going to school at USU. I love to laugh and play my family more than anything else, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Sandy Utah. I am the fourth child out of five, I am aslo an unlce to 6 about to be 7. I love to be with my family for anything. I also love to go too water parks, go to Disneyland and do anything where I can be outside and enjoy the friesh air. One thing people notice about me when they first meet me is that I am tall, and yes I can dunk a basketball but I am no good at the sport. After High school I went to a year at Utah State and decided that I needed to go on a mission and was called to serve in Virginia the most beautiful place on earth!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon is that I know that God is my loving Heavenly Father. I know that he has called a mordern day prophet to bring back Jesus Christs church to this Earth. The way that I know this is through the Book Of Mormon!! I have not always had a strong testimony in the Book of Mormon, but one Sunday at church I was challenged to read the Book Of Mormon everyday and not miss for a month. So I took that challenge to heart and started to read everyday, and I noticed that the world seemed more beautiful and happier. I had forgotten about the things that mattered most I was too focused on the worldly things and the Book Of Mormon brought me a new hope. Since that Time I have not missed a day in 4 and a half years and my life has been blessed so much! I also am so greatful for my family and that the gospel focuses so much on the family. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought peace and happeness to my family, even though life can be hard if we rely fully on the Lord and put are faith in Him and His gospel my family has truly seen that in this crazy world so I know that is from God.

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? By being obedient to the commandments the Lord has given us. I follow them because I love Christ and I know that He has set up commandments so it will help us in our life. Another way that I live my faith is even when everyone around me does things that are not pleasing to God, I remember what He has done for me and I remember to stay to what I felt and believe.
