Hi I'm Mike

I was born in Portland, Oregon. I was captain of the football team. I am the president of my schools choir. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Portland, Oregon, and currently live in Washington State. I attend BYU-I and am working on my pre-requisites for the Nursing Program. Before I finish that though, I will serve a mission. I am hoping to leave before the end of the year. I enjoy sports, guitar and music, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of the church because of the personal experiences I have gone through. It's not because of my parents although they did raise me in the church. I decided that I believe it to be true. I have been in the dark when it comes to religion. When I was a teenager, I went through a period where I was inactive in the church. I didn't know what I wanted and felt lost. It was then that I turned back to the church and was able to find forgiveness. I am a Mormon because I have felt what it's like to not be one. I know that his church is the true church on the earth. I pray that others will come to know this as well.

How I live my faith

I am currently taking a mission preparation class. Twice a week, I am able to teach Someone in the class about what we have been learning. We take turns teaching each other. It is really enjoyable for me to touch someone's life through the gospel that I know to be true. I can't wait to teach people 24/7 for two years when I serve my mission.
