Hi I'm Mike

I love to learn as much as I can. I love my family and friends. I like good movies, books, and music. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying electrical engineering and I love to be involved in all sorts of activities. I enjoy singing in choir and dancing in addition to my studies. I served a mission for the Church in Southern California, and that experience shaped my life to be even more committed to follow Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true. I have read it and prayed about it, and I can't deny the truth that is there. Because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I speak the way I do, act the way I do, and live the way I do because of my testimony of Jesus Christ. What I want more than anything is to be like Jesus Christ. I believe with my whole soul that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is really led by Jesus Christ Himself, it is His Church. It makes sense and it feels right. I want to follow Jesus Christ. And that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I find a real peace as I read in the scriptures and pray daily. I believe that as I read the word of God that He gives me a portion of His power to do good and help others. It's interesting to me how if I neglect that scripture study and prayer I feel weaker and less able to handle challenges and temptations. I have realized that I am rather weak when I am not drawing close to God, but he strengthens me when I am. I also enjoy serving people, from helping someone move in to simply holding a door open. I feel like the power I find in the scriptures also motivates me to serve like I know Jesus Christ would if He were here right now. I guess mostly I just like the good feeling of knowing I did something to help someone else.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mike
I believe the missionaries go out and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others because they sincerely believe that it is true. They have seen great blessings come into their lives from following the teachings of Jesus Christ. They really feel that the message they carry will help other people to live happier lives. I chose to serve a mission because I came to know the Book of Mormon is true and I wanted everyone to have a chance to read it. I wanted everyone to come to believe in Jesus Christ.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Mike
We believe in the Holy Bible because we believe God cares about us enough to give us instructions. The Bible's writings give us instructions which, if followed, will bring us lasting happiness. Show more Show less
