Hi I'm Michael

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I play sports, go to school, and am preparing for a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now, I am getting ready to graduate high school and serve a mission. I have been called to serve in the Ecuador Quito North Mission. I report to the Mexico MTC on July 30. During high school, I have been extremely involved in sports. I was the kicker on the football team, the goalie on the soccer team, and played basketball. I am also in our school's concert choir. Once I graduate, I plan on spending more time reading the scriptures and Preach My Gospel to help me better prepare to serve the people of Ecuador.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this gospel is true. I was born into a strong LDS family and always heard about how this church was true. I never really doubted any of the teachings, but I had never found out for myself if it was. Recently, however, I came to know of its truthfulness on my own. After I finished reading The Book of Mormon for the first time, I got down on my knees to pray and ask Heavenly Father if what I had read was true. As I began to pray, my heart started pounding and I had this warm feeling that reassured me that The Book of Mormon was true. This experience confirmed to me that what I had been taught my entire life was true. And, for the first time, I didn't just have someone telling me it was true. I knew it was true because I had put in the effort to find out.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to my church meeting regularly. I help plan activities for the rest of the youth in m ward. With my dad, we go and visit a few different families in our neighborhood each month and share a spiritual message with them. I also live my faith by being an example to my friends and those around me. Not all of my friends have the same beliefs as me, but I always try to do my best to be a good example to them.
