Hi I'm Michael Christensen

Im a Firefigher in training, work out fiend, and adventurist. Im a mormon

About Me

I come from a family of 4 boys, me being the youngest. I love to work out. It is the only thing that has kept me sane throughout my life. Sports played a huge role in keeping me out of most trouble... football, wrestling, swimming, track, basketball, soccer, biking, hiking, rock climbing, camping, MMA, etc,... If it requires being physical, I LOVE IT. My plans for the future is to become a Paramedic/Firefighter. Being able to help others in their times of trial and need just feels amazing. I DO WORK!!!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up I pulled myself away from the church. I didnt enjoy the people, the buildings, anything. I hated it. I found myself falling deeper into anger, jealousy, and some things that I know I shouldnt have been doing. I kept this up all through my teen years, and it came time to grad. from high school. I had alot of friends that were going into the military and well, I wanted to go as well. At this same time my brother went on a mission, at the time I was mad that he left. I didnt know WHY he left. That just added fuel to my fire. While he was gone I engaged with some recruiters about which branch of the military I should join. At first I was kinda wishy washy. But one day an incident pushed me over the edge, and I decided right then and there I was going to follow the path of my cousin and become a NAVY SEAL. I left my house and went right to the office, ready to sign my life into their hands. When I got to the office I had my hand on the door and a voice, loud as day, told me to "go home, now is not the time". I tried to argue with it and it said it again, "go home, now is not the time". Upset, I listened. When I got home, there, on my bed, was a letter from my brother who was on a mission. He testified of Jesus Christ, his mission, and his personal desire to follow him as close as possible. He then challenged me to pray, to ask if this was true. This was the changing point in my life. It was a simple prayer, but the results of it have changed me forever. On my knees I felt the spirit so strongly I started to cry. I began to ask for forgiveness, for help, for understanding, for everything that came to my heart. It was AMAZING! I came out of my room that night with the knowledge that God really was there, that Jesus Christ is real, and that they love me. I KNOW IT. AND I WILL NEVER DENY IT.

How I live my faith

As of right now I am serving as a full time Missionary. I have dedicated 2 years of nothing but Christ-like service to EVERYONE. I am now in New Jersey, and will be for just a short time longer.
