Hi I'm Michael

I'm a pizza maker. I'm a family man. I'm an American. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20 years of age. I moved from Idaho to Arizona where I met the missionaries of the Church. From then, I was baptized and my life has been blessed ever since. I grew up a Jehovah Witness, but drifted away from religion shortly after middle school. I would always look up at the stars wondering what was out there. My questions were answered and my soul filled. I love this Gospel, and I love the Saviour. I like to read the Book of Mormon, and serve others. I love oranges and lasagna, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe and know this Gospel to be true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of the Lord in these latter days. I know the Book Of Mormon to be the word of God given to us by Him to lead and guide us in these frustrating times. If any one of you out there who are looking hope who are seeking for more than wealth. Look up at the stars, and take in the majesty of the heavens. Know that all need God, even more now than ever before. "Come to me and I will give you rest" says the Saviour of the world. I'm just some twenty year old 'kid'. But I know my past, and I have a future in God. I know the love of God. If you don't know this love, now is the time to know perfect love.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to go and serve a full time mission in South America. I do all that I can to balance work, study, and family time. Every Sunday Church is a must. If I miss a Sunday, the following days are so very lousy. I work with other families in the congregation with another member to help uplift those that are around us.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

I'd like to look at it as our bodies are blessings and gifts from God. We believe that Joseph received revelation on a law of health directly form the Lord. Now we know that drugs and tobacco are not good for the body, there's a wealth of scientific evidence to support that. But some say that that this cannot be so with coffee and tea for such is good for you, some cannot make it through the day without it. Now whether it has good or bad health benefits to it, if Joseph Smith really was a prophet of God, then this revelation was and is true. If God tells us not to do something, we should not do it. Likewise, God has said to not drink tea, coffee, or use harmful substance, therefore we follow this counsel. Show more Show less
