Hi I'm Michael

I was born into a Mormon family, married my Mormon sweetheart, and raised 6 Mormon kids. I'm definately a Mormon.

About Me

I am a retired science teacher and I enjoyed this profession very much. Since retiring, my wife and I have been very busy ministering to our family members as their needs have become evident. I enjoy watching PBS science programs, music programs, and basically learning something new every day and expanding my interests. I have tried to instill as many of these interests in my children as possible. I find the world to be an extremely fascinating place and try to aid others increase in their appreciation of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon and will be forever more. I have found that the life I live has been influenced by the church and the Lord's commandments and teachings in nearly every way. I am who I am because of trying to live up to the Lord's expectations, however, I do have many faults and short comings. I try to do better and be a better person day by day.

How I live my faith

My wife and I were called to be Perpetual Education Fund Self Reliance missionaries in the Brazil Sao Paulo South Mission. We waited for 8 months for our visas to go to Brazil. The Church missionary department called and suggested we get a re-assignment. We agreed and were called to serve in the mission office of the California Long Beach Mission. We will now be serving those wonderful people and missionaries.
