Hi I'm Mike Searcy

I'm from the Mountain West, I'm an international business man, and father. I enjoy extreme watersports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father and interactions with my family bring me great joy. Bike rides through the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park; repelling into Escalante Canyon; and hiking through Arches in the snow have been great family building experiences - with some fascinating stories. When at home, I waterski, wakeboard, and rebuild cars. I travel extensively for my employer and my work has taken me to most of the world’s continents. For a few years my family and I lived in the UK. We now reside in Indiana and I travel across Asia, Europe, and the Americas for work. Our family motto is to work hard and play hard. We love to camp, hike and enjoy a few days at the lake every summer. You will find us waterskiing and wakeboarding on the Ohio River during the summer.

Why I am a Mormon

Where ever I visit or live in the world I find peace and familiarity in attending Sunday meetings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My favorite part of Sunday meetings is teaching Sunday school where we exchange ideas and experiences of how the gospel of Jesus Christ has impacted our lives and helped us to become better individuals. I am convinced that God knows each of us personally and has an individualized plan for our lives. Being a Mormon has helped me find that individualized plan for my life.

How I live my faith

My faith is active and enabling. Our family is centered on living the gospel of Jesus Christ which brings peace to our home and stability in family relationships. I have found that regular family prayer at the end of the day brings the family together and often encourages some great family discussions. Serving others after storms, floods and other natural disasters has helped I and my family members to learn compassion and gratitude.
