Hi I'm Michael

I grew up in Houston Texas. I like to run, hang out with friends and go to school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently enrolled at Brigham Young University - Provo. I am studying Information Systems with a minor in Computer Science. I like to run and get to know people and I've grown up in the church all my life but still went through all of the normal stresses and trials of being a teenager in such a big world. I have a family that I love very much.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this Church is true and through faith in Jesus Christ and praying about the Book of Mormon if it's true, and I received that honest answer that it is. I've gotten this testimony when I was 16 and have continued to progress as I learned different blessings come from different doctrines of Christ's restored Gospel. I know faith in Jesus Christ can help anyone with anything and I know serving a mission right now is what God called me to do because he needs everybody to have the chance to know of this marvelous work. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet and he translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I know today there is a modern prophet by the name of Thomas S. Monson and he also leads this church through inspiration and revelation from our Heavenly Father, who loves us enough to give us one. I bear this testimony in the holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through the everyday decisions I make of trying to be like Jesus through love, service, scripture reading, church attendance and trying to become a better person everyday.

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

The Church of Jesus Christ testifies that marriage is ordained for the purpose of creating and establishing families. As we should not judge others because they sin differently than we do, we must always stand up for defense of the family and love everyone despite differences. Show more Show less
