Hi I'm Mike Price

I grew up in Pennsylvania and went to college in Utah. I was a practicing Catholic and now I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to the love of my life and we have been blessed with five daughters. Like most, we have been humbled and struggled, but have pressed forward with a steadfastness in the goodness of Christ. We like to travel to visit family. We have always enjoyed working and serving. Personally, I like to study and understand economics and financial markets. I marvel at certain individuals and families and what they have overcome in their precious lives.

Why I am a Mormon

The matchless life of Jesus Christ began to stir in my heart when I was 12 or 13. I began to search for spiritual truth and better understanding. I read and studied. I attended church and went to mass. I admired men and women of faith, goodness and conviction. I gained a fairly good understanding of Christendom, but was yearning. I fell in love with my wife who was a Mormon. Her faith and example began to soften my heart, but I was not yet humble and teachable. Some 20+ years ago as I was about to become a father for the first time, the missionaries knocked on our door on a cold winter's night and I began to truly listen to the message of the restoration of the fullness of the everlasting gospel. I marveled at the implications of the truth they taught -- the plan of salvation, the nature of God and Jesus Christ, temple work that can sweep all of God"s children into His bosom and living prophets. Most importantly, in the years since I have begun to understand the Saviors atoning sacrifice and the peaceable ways of the kingdom. Quite simply, Jesus heals. He succors. He quenches and calms. He gives us hope that we can break the cords of spiritual death and sin as we exercise faith, repent of our sins and strive to obey the commandments. Over time, guile and malice can seep from us and we can develop charity and the pure love of Christ.

How I live my faith

SInce joining the church some 20 years ago, my life his been filled with service. It has invariably stretched me and helped me to grow. I see the beautiful ripple effect in my own family as we lose ourselves in the service of others. I have had the great privilege of teaching youth, planning activities, leading in scouting, giving talks, listening and counseling. What a blessing. I try to study the scriptures and pray every day. I try to always express my gratitude to others who serve me and my family. We have strived to improve our self reliance as a family -- temporally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Importantly, I have tried to lead with love and affection within my home and cherish my wife. In my community, I have had the opportunity to serve as well -- on a school board, on an arts board, in fundraising for social services and with other people of faith. What a rich life! I am so thankful.
