Hi I'm Mike

I'm from CA, NM and NV. I'm a Navy Vet and a Mormon

About Me

I'm a father of 3 kids, was a Seabee in the Navy for 10 years. I have been to 26 countries. I met Mormon missionaries in almost every country. I use to Drink and use tobacco and by faith I quit and I have never been happier. I have been married 2 times. I joined the LDS Church while I was in the Navy. I am in construction. I have my own construction company and a Gun business. I like to go shooting and off-roading. ATV's and Sand rails. I have friends of many faiths to include no faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because one Day I was at the end of my rope. I needed help and kneeled down and prayed to God for help. With in minutes There were 2 missionaries at my door. I said ok God. We sat and I took the discussions. I prayed should I join the church. The next weekend I went to Church with my friend who knew I was talking to the missionaries. The pasture said to his members the Mormon church is not the church to join. I was not sure what happened. I told the missionaries I was not going to join. They smiled and left. If they would have tried to argue with me I would have fought back and really not ever talk again. When they left I felt a bad feeling and it shocked me. I prayed again and asked why do I feel this way? with in a hour I received a call from a stranger who got my name from another person in the Navy. He wanted to do business with me. We became the best of friends. One day I asked him what is it with your family and your friends family? He asked what do you mean? I said they are so good to each other and other people. Its just not normal how much fun and happy they are. He smiled and told me it's the church. I said what? He said the Mormon church. I was taken back . I started to go to church with him and after a while most people thought I was a member until one day someone asked me. Needless to say I joined after that. There is no Doubt This is the true Church on this earth. I have had so many blessings and things happen to me and my family that no one could ever convince me of anything else. After joining I found out my family history goes back to the start of the church with Joseph smith. Life is not about what your friends think at first but most of them will be there in the end. Having family for ever is worth everything.

How I live my faith

I have served in may areas in our church, I currently serve as the Guy who helps people get jobs and helps people get better jobs. I visit families in our area and help them when they need it. I help people become better prepared for emergencies. I serve as I have been blessed by others so many times.
