Hi I'm Michael

I grew up in Orem, Utah. The Virginia Chesapeake Mission is the best mission in the world... And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in Happy Valley (Utah Valley). I've been a member of the church my whole life, and am so thankful for the Gospel. I love sports! Soccer is number one, but I also enjoy basketball, snowboarding, and football. I love my friends, and especially my family. I am so thankful for all of the experiences I have had in my life that have guided me up to this point. I know that change is something that is not always painless, but it is purposeful.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. He actually saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in a vision, and the Book of Mormon is the reality of that vision! I have come to know this by reading and praying about it. I know that Heavenly Father loves ALL of His children and is just waiting to answer ANY sincere prayer.

How I live my faith

I am serving as a missionary in the Virginia Chesapeake Mission, and am loving it. There is nothing like going out each day and trying to help people come closer to Jesus Christ by inviting the Spirit into their lives. Not only does it change them, but the experiences I have had have changed me. I am going to continue living my faith even after my mission by being "anxiously engaged in a good cause." Whether that is in school, a calling at church, or at work, I want to continue to share the gospel with those around me.
