Hi I'm Michael

I've been a member all my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy writing, both fiction and fanfiction. I enjoy drawing, listening to music, and being a member of the Church. I have struggled with depression. I've been in a psychiatric hospital twice. I've mixed music, and I really enjoy playing video games and reading. Currently, my friends and I are working on a fan-game.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church is incredible. I am able to rely on anyone. It's like having a really large family. The support system is the best anyone can ask for. Everyone is friendly and willing to help and understand. I've struggled with depression, and the Church has helped so much, from knowledgeable friends who are willing to drop everything to help, to inspired leaders who are guided by the Holy Ghost. Christ's love has helped me make it through these past years. I cannot express how much I love the Church. It is incredible that God has allowed us to have his power. I have seen this power at work so many times, through blessings and prayers. It is amazing to be able to hold this power. It is astounding that the Lord trusts us, imperfect beings, to wield his authority for the right causes. I love being a worthy holder of the priesthood. I have learned, through prayer, that the Prophet Joseph Smith was an inspired man. He was chosen to build the Church in these days. He was chosen to translate the Book of Mormon. Because of his beliefs, Joseph Smith became a martyr. I love this Church. I love the Gospel, and I love the people. The love of Christ overcomes all things, as I have learned first-hand. I know that 'The Lord is my light.'

How I live my faith

I am a priest and am able to bless the sacrament. I am the secretary in my age group. My bishop and I teach two families once a month. I also really enjoy talking about the Church with my friends.
