Hi I'm Mic

I'm an student at BYU. I was born and raised in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 4 big brothers, and it shows in the things I love in life. I love to run, mountain bike, hike, and find any excuse to be outside. Wanderlust is my life, and I love to travel to new places. My camera is my constant companion and documents all of my life's adventures. Art is my passion. Creating it, admiring it, talking about it... I just love it. My family means everything to me. They are my best friends and my support system through everything. I am a survivor of a major rollover accident, where I broke my back, but have worked hard to heal and never let it be an excuse to not do something.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen my life without it, and I have seen my life with the gospel in it. There is no comparison. My life without the church is confusing and scary, but with it, I have peace. I have seen miracles work in my life, particularly involving my severe car accident, and I know I was protected and preserved by the hand of a loving Heavenly Father. I know that my Redeemer lives. I know that he suffered for me in Gethsemane, not simply for my sins, but also for all of the pains, physical and emotional, that I would face. I have come to know Him through scripture study and prayer, and through this, I have come to value Him as one of my greatest friends.

How I live my faith

I live in a university singles ward, where we are all living away from family and close friends. My calling is a "spiritual and temporal wellness co-chair", and I help make sure that everyone in our ward is taken care of physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When they are in need of something, I do my best to make sure they are taken care of and know that we are there for them. I help provide a support system and a family for them here. Throughout each month, I have 2 women in particular that I visit with. Sometimes all they need is a listening ear, sometimes it is a shoulder to cry on, sometimes it's to provide them with some sweets. No matter what, I know I am making a small difference.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Any time there is a natural disaster in an area, whether or not there are Mormons in the area, you can guarantee that one of the first groups to come to the aid of the people in the affected area will be the Mormon church! They arrive with food, medical supplies, and strength in numbers to help the people get things back in order! Similarly, we have missionaries serving throughout the world, who serve people of any, all, or no religions. Show more Show less
