Hi I'm Jean-Michel

I'm a daddy, an electrician, a big brother and I'm a Mormom.

About Me

I was born in norther Alaska. Our family moved when I was two and I haven't been back yet. It's on my bucket list. As a kid we moved around a lot for different jobs my dad had. He was almost always the bread winner as my mother home schooled us 11 kids. I am the eldest and sadly have been known as the mean one. I'm still working on being a good older brother. Even with all that we are all still pretty close. I love them all. When I was in high school I got into an electrical class that was a lot of hands on stuff. I ended up being good enough to win a couple local Skills USA competitions and went to their national competition representing Utah high school aged contestants in the electrical. I have had a great time being an electrician. Yes I do get shocked every once in a while. I am currently studying to take my masters exam. I'm a foreman still learning almost every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Morman because going to church brings me, lets me, and offers me opportunities to, feel the love of Christ. I feel peace when I feel the love of Christ. Peace is more valuable to me than millions of dollars. Ill gotten money and riches do not bring peace. I know that service brings peace. Forgiveness through Christ was something I learned at home and at church from a father and mother who learned of it from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I try my best to invite others around me to live better lives by living a good life myself. I love the quote about it not being of any service to anyone to keep yourself small but rather it is better to let your light shine so that others can see and will not feel out of place letting their light of goodness shine too. A scripture from the Bible comes to mind. Matt 5:14-16. It's actually my favorite passage. In my local congregation I am in the Elders Quorum (Mens' Group) leadership. I help organize a system for visiting every member of our group every month called Home Teaching. Everyone has a few families that they are assigned to visit outside of the regular church service to see how they are doing spiritually and physically. In a perfect world everyone is checked on at least once a month by someone else at church. Also as the leader of this group I help organize the many service projects such as moving new members in and other members out of there homes, cleaning out older folks yards, snow removal, and the list goes on. I believe strongly that part of living my faith means being a good father and husband. I steer clear of pornography, alcohol, drugs, and try not to over eat what I do eat. I love my children by loving their mother wholeheartedly. My wife and I have recently started to make room in our budget for more giving in dollar form. That has been a wonderful thing to be able to do.
