Hi I'm Michael Craig Lewis Howden

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in South Africa then moved to Amreica. I have three older sisters and one older brother leaveing me to be the youngest but the tallest by far. I LOVE the outdoors and plaing sports and Music and talking to new people about anythin. some of the sports i like are swimming sufing rugby ext. but for music its all over the place from Bach to lil Jon. I went to Rhodes Jr. High School in Mes, Az and then to Dobson High School. During this time I swam on the Boys Swim team and loved every bit of it from the "100's till you drop" and 5am practices to the "Pasta Parties". During my studdies at school went wel i was in band and Greman Club for a little bit. Then I made the chouse to focuse on my swimming and so I did. However my Sr. year of high school i got really sick and i was forced out of the water for a while. and my swimming was never the same after that. So after high school was done I put my mission papers in and a few weeks later I recived my mission call to the California Los Angeles Spanish speaking Mission and wasto report to the M.T.C. on the 28th of December. During my 9 week stay at the M.T.C. I made many new friends and I love everyone of them . I loved every thing about my mission and everyone I met!

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints because I have done all my homework on it and i did as Moroni asked of us witch is to "...ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true.. ask with a SINCERE HEART, with REAL INTENT, having FAITH in CHRIST, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost" Moroni 10:4. And I can say that this is true if we do ask with all our hearts and by having Faith that we will recive an answer. God will send the Holy Ghost to testify the trutfulness of the Gosple that is taught in the Book of Mormon and thoughout the Church as a whole. And I testify to all you the people of the world that I, Michael Howden, have an unshakable faith in our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ, and that he suffered and died for us so that we can live with our Father in Heaven and our familys for ever and all always. I also know that Josph Smith was called of God to translate the Book of Mormon and to REestablish the true chuch on the earth. I know that through living the laws and ordances of the Gosple one can learn to live a joyfull life. I can say these things for a fact because he Holy Ghost has made them knowen to me and I say this in the name of Jesus Christ Amen

How I live my faith

I live my faith day to day. I wake up in the mornigs greatful to see a new day and I give thanks to God for it then I study the Scriptures seeking guidance and help for what I am to do that day. After that I go and do everyday things from picking weeds to riding my bike to go shopping for food and chilling with friends and watching movies. And at the end of the day I thank him for all that he did for me and i ask for forgivness for all the mess-ups that day. On Sundays I go to Church and learn even more about the Gosple. but i would have to say the thing that keeps me in close contact with our father in Heaven is that i find myself praying. Not out loud but in my heart telling him how im feeling and constanly asking him for help in every thing. Thats how i live my faith on a daily baises.
