Hi I'm Mike Briggs

I live in Michigan earning an income as a embedded systems programmer and volunteer with the Boy Scouts.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California after my family moved there in 1986. I now make my living programing navigation radios. I also am heavily involved in Scouting.

Why I am a Mormon

The really short version of my conversion is I joined for a lady, but ended up staying for myself. When I left the Methodist Church, I was looking for a faith where the majority of the active members that I interacted with practiced what they preached. That is what I feel I found in the LDS Church.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am called as a Scouting Specialist for the Ann Arbor Stake Young Men Presidency.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Mike Briggs
The simple answer is no. No more so than the Jewish worship Abraham or any of the Old Testament Prophets. He is a man, pure and simple. No more or less than you and I. Just happened to have been chosen by God to bring His teachings back to Earth. Being a Prophet, while being a divine calling of great importance, is a social curse in the life of that Prophet. None of the Old Testament Prophets had an easy life either. Show more Show less
