Hi I'm Mike

I write poems and stories, I enjoy the outdoors, whether it be camping, hiking, or just being out. And I am a mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Japan Fukuoka Mission. I was born and spent the first two years of my life in Japan, and then moved to Canada, Idaho, California, and my family is now in Utah. My mom is Japanese and my dad is American. I am the second child of three boys. I played football when i was in high school. I have a love for writing poems and stories. I have had a love for reading since i was little. I find joy in listening to music(a variety of different genres some for example, Classical, jazz, techno, instrumental, but I love Rock the most) and I have played the Tuba for 7 years. It is always a blast just hanging out with friends, whether it be playing video games, games in general, and airsoftting. I have always been involved with scouting, cub scouts and boy scouts since I was little, and go figure enjoy being in the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, being taught what we as members of the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints believe, but it never fully stuck with me, or more like I had kinda gone through the motions. It wasn`t until I was in some grief that I gained an epiphany about Prayer. Prayer is such a simple thing, but yet we can take it for granted so very easily. Through prayer we can talk with God and better understand our relations with him. I have learned for myself that God does really care about us, that he cares about me. It is amazing to think that someone like God, the creator of everything, could have and still does take time to listen to one boy like me when there is 5 billion other people on this earth and there is so much in this world. God does listen if we talk to him in prayer. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and was and is still willing to help us find the way to have joy and peace of mind. God wants us to have joy, and for us to be able to feel love. The world is such a busy place, always something to do, somewhere to go, but the most important thing we can learn here is our relationship with God.

How I live my faith

Other than by serving as a missionary, and sharing what I know is true, I strive to show what I believe the way I feel God wants to us be by being kind to others, serving others in whatever way I can, and just trying to make people smile. The world needs more smiles.
