Hi I'm Michael

I am a husband, I am a student, I love baseball, and I work in sales, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a newly married and am a college student studying Business Management. I love sports, especially baseball and the Dodgers!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to believe there is more out there. I want to believe that I have a truly remarkable purpose and potential. The Book of Mormon, along with the Bible and words of modern day prophets teach me that there is a purpose in this life. A Book of Mormon prophet named Alma taught, "For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors." (Alma 34:32) This gives me a reason to get up every morning and to do my best. I know that I wont be perfect, in fact I probably wont even have a perfect day. But I know that I am "preparing" to meet my Heavenly Father and that I can become like Him and my savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be like Christ by learning of Him, and keeping His commandments the best I can. Life is really hard, so I know that I need Christ's help in all that I do. I love to study the scriptures and do so with my wife every night. I have the great opportunity to teach a Sunday school class at church about the Old Testament, and I enjoy learning from the stories from the Old Testament because I have learned that even though it was a long time ago, those things taught by holy prophets then can be applied to my life now.
