Hi I'm Michael

I'm from Mesa, Arizona. I'm a Photographer, Uncle, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from the Phoenix area, my passion is Photography! I have always lived in Arizona, and I love it. I'm currently a missionary for the church in Ohio. I graduated from Heritage Academy, and when I return home I intend on going to school for Human Resources. But my dream job would be a full-time photographer.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but never really questioned it until a very close friend of mine asked me why my actions didn't match with what I said that I believed. It had never really occurred to me whether or not I TRULY believed the gospel. She point-blank asked me "Do you actually believe it?". Such a simple question had so much weight to it! I began that day to ask myself that. I took it to the scriptures, prayer and considered everything I knew or had been taught in my short life, and there came a point where it just hit me that I DID know it was true. That God does, in reality, talk to us through living prophets today. This, above all else stuck out to me as evidence that God does exist, and that he has given us prophets to help lead us back to live with Him.

How I live my faith

Like previously stated, I'm currently a missionary, and I have elected to put my life on hold for 2 years to simply invite the wonderful people here in Ohio to experience the happiness that I have received from the gospel and knowing my relationship with Our Savior. I love the scriptures and day by day I realize their importance in our lives, and why our Father in Heaven has taught us through prophets.
