Hi I'm Michael

I grew up in Southport. I am married with 4 children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married with 4 children. My family is my greatest hobby. My other interests include hiking, playing the piano and singing, and playing and following many sports. I studied Mechanical Engineering at University and have worked in the Wastewater, Energy and Gas industries.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up as a member of this church by my parents who were converts to it before I was born. As I grew up I wanted to know for myself if what I had been taught and what I read was true and if I should continue to follow this path. I received then and many times since answers to my prayers. I know that God lives, Jesus is the Christ. I know that they love us and have shown that through the life, ministry, sacrifice, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I know that there is a prophet on earth today just as in olden days. I am grateful for the teachings from both ancient scripture: the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon and also modern-day teachings from our current prophet that helps guide my family and I in our lives. I know that there is a purpose to all of our lives, that it does matter what choices we make and how we treat others. I know that I can be re-united with my family members who have died in the next life and that is one of the reasons I need to work hard to be a good father and husband in this life.

How I live my faith

I enjoy participating in church services and activities and helping others. I play the organ each Sunday and sing in the choir in church services. I assist church leaders in the organisation of services, meetings and events. I visit other members of the church in their homes and try to help them in any way I can.
