Hi I'm Mike Vance

I grew up in Southern California. I like motorcycles and fitness, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Here are a couple things about me: I love motorcycles, and continue to ride as often as I can. My buddy and I love going out to the ranges or desert to shoot guns. I spend a lot of time with my dogs as well. I grew up training in MMA. I fought as an ammeter for a while and enjoy training others now. I was also a gymnastics coach and personal trainer prior to leaving for a Church mission in 2016 I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. After my mission, I look forward to studying at a university.

Why I am a Mormon

Jesus Christ's promise is that if we follow his commandments, he will bless us. I have seen His hand in my life. This is His gospel and His church in the latter-days. His gospel gives me direction in my life. I am a Mormon because He has blessed me and taught me that this is indeed His true church in the latter-days. I asked if it was true, and followed that up with diligent study and prayer. I cannot deny the spiritual enlightenment I receive through personal studying of the scriptures, and prayer. It has brought peace into my life, and I'm truly happy as a result.

How I live my faith

I apply all I know in the gospel to my life. I believe that when we weave the gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ into our daily life, we become better, smarter, friendlier, etc. Our capacity to do anything increases. Since doing this I have found much more enjoyment in life. I love living my faith.
