Hi I'm Michael

I'm a basketball player. I'm serving a mission in Dallas Texas. I love music. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love sports in any of their varieties, but I am a basketball player at heart. I have a couple opportunites to play college ball and I hope to be able to capitalize on those. I am currently on track to go to medical school but there are still many things that I would love to be able to do. I love anything that has to do with mathematics and science. Besides those things I just love to have fun. I love my family and I will do anything for them. All in all, life is good. Like they say, "Keep On Keep'n On!"

Why I am a Mormon

As a missionary I get asked, "why are you a mormon?" all the time. I love this question. It gives me an opportunity to share the beautiful truths that I have come to know because of my religion. I grew up in the church all my life. But I didn't get my testimony of this gospel until my teenage years. In the church we are taught that we can know if the church is true, if Joseph Smith is a prophet by reading the Book of Mormon and asking God if it is true. I did just this. God truly does answer prayers. He is very aware of us and he wants to be involved in our lives. He answered my prayer and helped my to know that this is his restored church on the earth and that his son, Jesus Christ, is at the head of it.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving the Lord in the Good Ole South. I am in Dallas Texas with the best people in the world. When I was back home I served on the Youth City Council and helped to address problems that faced the youth of the community. It is amazing to see that the gospel can help us to overcome every problem that we face in life.
