Hi I'm Michael

I have lived in Farmington Utah most of my life. I am a father of 5 children and 22 grand children.

About Me

I have lived in Farmington, Utah most of my life. I am a father of 5 children and have 22 grandchildren. I am a retired accountant who was blessed to sell my CPA practice to my son who followed in my footsteps. I enjoy fly fishing, working in my yard and playing with my grandkids

Why I am a Mormon

The LDS (Mormon) Church brings meaning and purpose to my life. When I was a young man attending the University of Utah on an athletic scholarship (wrestling) I was doing great in my sport but not so great in my studies. I was born into the church but was having questions about my belief in my religion from some of the classes I was taking. It was at this point in my life that I started reading the Book of Mormon with real intent. Through much study and prayer I decided to go on a LDS Mission. I was called to serve in the North British Mission. Serving on this mission did two things that changed my life. First, I was more converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ by seeing the changes it made in the conversion of those that accepted the gospel and I also learned to study. I went back to the U of U and received my accounting degree. Along this journey I met my beautiful wife. I know the Book of Mormon can change people's lives for the good, it changed mine. I have a testimony that Jesus is the Savior of the world. That through His atonement my sins can be forgiven and will be remembered no more. I have a testimony the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who restored the Gospel and that we have a living prophet today in President Thomas S. Monson who presides over the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the LDS Church is more than going to church once a week. I have always accepted any church calling that I have been asked to do. More than just service to our ward members and neighborhood I try to live the teachings of the Savior in my business. One of the advantages of owning your own business is you can determine the principles on how you conduct your practice. I have always tried to be honest with my clients and employees and treat everyone fairly. My wife and I will be serving a LDS Mission soon.
