Hi I'm Michael

I grew up in Utah. I love mountain biking and skiing. i write electronic music. im a mormon.

About Me

My name is Michael Scruggs. I was born in Provo Utah. I have enjoyed learning to ski, and mountain bike. both of which i still enjoy doing currently. I also am a self taught electronic music producer, which is something i absolutely love to do. I am currently 18 years old, and have graduated from high school, and attended a semester of college at Utah State University. I am studying Mechanical Engineering, but am putting that on hold to serve a Mormon Mission. I am very excited to serve the people of Chesapeake, Virginia for 2 years.

Why I am a Mormon

at first i was a Mormon because i was born into the religion. My parents taught me much about what it means to be converted, and to be a Mormon. I am now a Mormon because i know that the gospel is true. I have felt that there is a loving Heavenly Father that is watching over us, and wants us to return to him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by consistent scripture study and prayer every single day. I also attend church meetings, and fulfill callings i receive in the church. One of the hardest callings i ever had to fulfill was when i was called to be a Gospel Doctrine teacher in my singles ward. I was terrified to teach everyone in my ward, most of whom were returned missionaries. I was very intimidated and nervous. I had to just take a leap of faith, realizing that i couldn't fulfill that calling by myself, and that i needed the lord to help me. I was able to confidently teach my class. I know i was helped by heavenly father, so that i could fulfill my calling. I am excited to take that testimony with me on my mission, and know that heavenly father will bless me with strength to teach.
