Hi I'm Mick Topham

I'm in Canada eating Poutine and Pierogies; and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Unsurprisingly I was born and raised in a small Mormon town in Southern Utah. At the age of fifteen, I started becoming interested in all types of metal work; and started an apprenticeship with a welder and machinist. A machinist is just a fancy word for someone who uses big industrial equipment to create things out of metal like gears and screws. For three years I juggled high school, work, and having fun with my friends. Then I graduated, *woot woot! I hung up my auto darkening welding helmet and traded it in for a suit and tie! I'm now serving as a missionary in Canada! How sweet is that, 'eh?

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised into the “Mormon” church and baptized at the age of eight. At the time, I was more concerned with cartoons, rather than the fact that God loves me. That changed a few years later when I followed through on a New Year’s Resolution to read a chapter from, The Book of Mormon a day. It wasn't always easy, but it was rewarding. It got to the point that I decided to read two chapters, then three chapters, and eventually finished the book in late May. Through reading I felt the Holy Ghost so strong that I knew it was true. Not only through those experiences, but I also prayed and I knew the Book of Mormon is true. I continue to pray to this day and I still know without a doubt that this book is from God.

How I live my faith

Church, Prayer, and Reading the Scriptures; it’s that simple. Crazy enough, the beginning letters of each of those ideas forms, “CPR,” which is a medical procedure that saves lives. Not only will the medical procedure save lives, but also if we apply the ideas it can save “spiritual lives” or increasing faith in Jesus Christ. By doing these things I have grown to love my Savior and become a better person today, than I was yesterday.
