Hi I'm Micah

I like to missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 7 and I am the middle child. I grew up mostly in Spanish Fork, Utah. I love to run, and ran Track and Cross Country in high school. I also love to draw and read comics and other books. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Utica, New York mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and I was raised as a Mormon. As I grew older I began to question the church and I didn't know if it was true. I never made huge mistakes, but not doing small things like praying daily, and daily scripture study, brought me down and I slowly lost my testimony. I struggled to know who I was and what I was doing with my life all throughout my teenage years, until I was 17. The October general conference before I turned 18 President Thomas S. Monson announced that 18 year old boys could now serve missions. I realized then that I needed to serve a mission, my testimony wasn't strong, but I knew that it was the right thing to do. I began to pray daily, and to really study the scriptures, I wanted to know whether the church was true or not. I gained my testimony of this church the exact same way I lost it at first, by doing the small things. By daily prayer and scripture study, and by going to and paying attention in church, I felt the spirit each time and it manifested to me that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church of our Heavenly Father. I am so grateful that I took the time to learn for myself and gain my own testimony of the gospel. I know that this is God's true church and that through this church and through Christs atonement we can return to our Heavenly Father someday. I love this church and I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in everything I do. I am always looking to serve others and to brighten peoples day. I try to always act as Jesus Christ would. I show my faith by keeping God's commandments and living worthily to be in His presence someday.
