Hi I'm Mike

I grew up in a tiny town in Oregon. I spent two years in Russia. I program computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a big computer nerd. I enjoy programming them, playing games on them, and building / fixing them. I also enjoy spending time with my kids, especially outside. I love sci-fi and fantasy novels, and am enjoying my kindle immensely.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the church, but never really knew if all the things I had learned were true. It took an experience before I served a mission in Russia to come to a testimony of this church. I finished reading the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if what I had read was true. The answer I received was simple: "You already know it's true; you've known all your life". As I looked back on my life, I knew that was a fact; I had really known all along. I had had my ups and downs, but every time I was doing what I knew was right, I felt that Spirit that confirmed that the church was true. I have had and continue to have many experiences that confirm to me that my Father in heaven loves me, and that his Son, Jesus Christ came to earth to redeem me from my sins. I know that the Book of Mormon is a divinely inspired record of the inhabitants of the Americas before and after the 1st coming of Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon, along with the Bible will bring you to a knowledge of a loving Father, and that they will change your life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best husband and I father that I know how to be. My family comes first, and I do my best to teach my children, both in spiritual matters as well as secular education. I do my best in every situation I am in, by giving my full effort to every endeavor. I have the opportunity to spend a few hours each week serving people voluntarily. I strive to improve myself daily, by praying and studying the scriptures, as well as bettering myself professionally, and physically. I strive to be kind and charitable to everyone that I meet. I try to share the wonderful truths of the gospel with those I come in contact with.
