Hi I'm Michael Butler

Raised in South Jordan, Utah. Love my family. Called to serve in the Calgary Canada Mandarin Chinese mission and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in a wonderful LDS family in South Jordan, Utah. I am 19 and currently called to serve in the Calgary, Canada mission speaking Mandarin Chinese. I love sports including baseball, basketball, and ultimate frisbee. Last year I coached my little brother's baseball team and I thoroughly enjoyed that. My family loves performing arts and I have been in many productions including playing the roll of Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. I love music and I love to sing. I love to rock climb and hike through canyons with my dad in southern Utah. I love to be with people and to socialize. I have learned to love and need this gospel. I want to help youth for my profession either through teaching or pediatrics. On my spare time I like to garden and do activities with my family. I love this gospel and I love to share it with my fellow brothers and sisters. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I love Christ. I love this gospel and the blessings it brings to my life. I have tested and gained my own testimony of the truthfulness of the this church and of the Book of Mormon. I have experienced both the bitterness and the sweetness. I love the sweet joy this gospel brings. I appreciate the knowledge that families live together forever and that there is more to life after death. I love this gospel, it makes sense, and I am so happy to share it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be like Jesus. I know I am not even close to being like Him but I do know that through daily scripture readin, prayer, and weekly church attendance I can learn and grow to become more like Him. I am currently serving Him through my calling as a missionary. I hope most of all I can be an example to others and glorify Him through my good works.
