Hi I'm mike

. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. Taught and coached high school for 29 years . Retired High School Administrator.

About Me

I am a retired High School science teacher and coach. My last 7 year I was a High School Administrator. I have been married for 48 years, have three adult children and seven grand children. I have a Master's Degree in Secondary Education and School Administration. I enjoy teaching young people and and especially coaching most sports. I current hobbies included traveling the the grand children, watching by trend children play sports and perform in school activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an inactive family setting. Our family moved to Las Vegas, Nevada when I was twelve years old. My LDS friends talked me into playing Church sports with them. They planted the seeds for helping me gain a true testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I always knew the Church was true but was uncommitted to keeping the commandments. Soon after my civil marriage to my wife ( who was new convert to the Church), a good Bishop friendshipped us into total activity in the Church. One year later we were married in the temple. I finally realized how blessed we are when we keep the commandments that Jesus Christ has given us so that we can be happy and eventually return to our Heavenly Father. When we finally realize the great sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for all of us in His Atonement for our sins. The blessings that I have received from following the teachings of our Savior have only increased my testimony of the truthfulness of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ in that Sacred grove. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that the Priesthood of God was also restored on the earth and that Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet of God and holds all the Keys and Power of the Priesthood and he leads and guides this Church today.
