Hi I'm Micah

I am an elementary school teacher who loves going on adventures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love experiencing and learning new things, even if they seem scary. I am a college student studying elementary education and my favorite thing in the world is seeing students light up when they learn something new. I love reading, books take me on all kinds of adventures and I love going on adventures. This year I went bungee jumping, black water rafting, and moved to another country to teach. My family is very important to me, I have six younger siblings who are now some of my best friends and we have so much fun together. I am currently taking a break from school to serve a full time mission for the Church. I actually leave tomorrow for one of the biggest adventures of my life and I am so excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and have been around it my whole life. My conversion wasn't one specific event that helped me to know of the truthfulness of the Gospel, but it was a gradual thing. I know that this is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ because the Spirit of the Lord has testified of the truthfulness of it to me over and over throughout my life. I am a Mormon because the Lord has let me know, undeniably, that it the Truth.

How I live my faith

I have been an active member of the church my entire life, and let me tell you, it is an active church. My whole life I have participated in many service projects. As a teenager I was given responsibilities to plan and carry out youth activities. Since then I have taught a fantastic Sunday school class as well as the children's primary classes. I have also been able to do a lot of family history work. I am now serving a full time, 18 month mission to preach the gospel to others. All of the service opportunities that are given as a member of the Church are great opportunities for growth and fellowship. I feel so much love for everyone that I have worked with and I feel the love they have gained for me, it is a fantastic experience.
