Hi I'm Michael

I love God, my family, and the accordion. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm number 4 of 5 boys in my family. I was born and raised in California, always in short driving distance of the beach. I love going to church with family and friends as well as singing, playing my accordions, and all sorts of other fun stuff. I went to college for a year in Hawaii and am now serving a Mission in Florida.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to live the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ because I've read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible. I've applied their teachings and found the fruit to be good! The strength the Gospel brings is peace in hard times, and greater joy than I could have found on my own. I know I can always trust God's word, for He never breaks a promise.

How I live my faith

For much of my life and my time at college, I've helped prepare the bread and water for the Sacrament each week. I also helped out in visiting members of the ward to see how they are doing. Today I am serving as a full-time missionary in Florida and spend all day from 6:30 am to 9:30 pm focused on building God's Kingdom and pointing my brothers and sisters to the One who can help them make it home, Jesus Christ.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Michael
I know that God is an Eternal God. I know that He is all powerful, all knowing, and all loving. He hasn't lost the ability, know how, or care for us that He has had for His children in the past. just as He has done many times before, He has called prophets in our day (Amos 3:7). Joseph Smith is the first prophet called again in our day, today the prophet that is called to guide us is Thomas S. Monson. One of the fruits to judge the truthfulness of God's work is the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, which was translated by the gift and power of God given to the prophet Joseph Smith. To know for yourself that God calls prophets today, just ask Him! Go to the source of all knowledge. Show more Show less
