Hi I'm Mike

I am a Mormon. I grew up in a small farming community in Utah.

About Me

I grew up on a farm in northern Utah. Hobbies incIude reloading shells for target shooting, flying RC airplanes, animals and all sports. I graduated from college and was a supervisor of the State Veterinary Diagnostic Lab. I also taught high school chemistry and general medical microbiology at the university level. I am married and the father of four married children and the grandfather of four boys and eight girls.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is a way of life that teaches me how to become more like Christ. It gives me hope and peace of mind to know why I am here on earth and what my potential is, if I but follow the Savior. I am a Mormon because it gives me the eternal prospective of the family and of what is sealed here on earth is sealed in heaven because of the temple ordinances. The Priesthood which I hold plays an important roll in my life as I can bless the lives of others through service if I am faithful and keep the commandments of the Lord. I know these teachings of Jesus Christ are true as testified to me by the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

In my community I have served on the Planning and Zoning Commission and on the Board of Adjustments. I am a past member of the Lion's Club. I have served in many leadership positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints including Bishop, Stake Presidency, High Councilor, teacher of different age groups, and as a hometeacher for many years. My wife and I have also been coordinators and group leaders in the Addiction Recovery Program for the LDS Family Services. I try to live my faith in all situations seven days a week.

Are Mormons Christians?

We are Christians in a very real sense because Jesus Christ is at the head of the Church and gives us direction through His prophets. Also, the church bears is name, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Show more Show less
