Hi I'm Michael doherty

I grew up in ireland but am not a leprechaun, i'm a mormon

About Me

My name is Michael Doherty. I was born in Tralee, county Kerry, Ireland, but lived most of my life in Limerick. I am a huge nerd! i love video games, books, heavy metal and warhammer! i'm a big softy at heart, even though i play pretty rough. playing rough just comes naturally to a boy who grew up with 2 sisters and 8 brothers.

Why I am a Mormon

growing up in ireland i didn't have many mormon freinds, and my tastes in music meant that a lot of the people i hung out with were not exactly paragons of virtue, not that they were bad people, it's just they didn't have the same standards as me.anyway bye the time i was about 13 most of my freinds were older then me and into various drugs, so while they claimed to enjoy themselves, they always seemed sad to me, and then i went to my first all mormon youth event at 14, the difference is huge! everyone seemd just happier, and free. and i saw that my life didn't have to be like my freinds, at that moment i decided that i would find out if it was true, and even if it wasn't... that was the kind of life i wanted to live. and it is true.

How I live my faith

i don't have a calling right now but i used to teach gospel doctrine class which was nice as i was able to help investigators learn more about our beliefs, i just live my religion and hope that it shows people that being mormon, isn't about sacreficing sheep:) which is the prevailing theory apparently:) i try to be an example to my younger brothers and sister, and also to my non-mormon freinds who have often remarked on how free and happy my life seems to be.
