Hi I'm Michael Heaton

I am from good old Provo, Utah. I love to play sports, do anything with computers, and sleep. I am 19 years old and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 6'4'' and am 230lbs. I enjoy playing basketball and played for my high school team. I also enjoy building and programming computers. A few more hobbies include eating, sleeping, and learning. If you want to learn and progress, the first step is to recognize how little you actually know. Then get to work learning from those around you. A few of my favorite books: How to Win Friends and Influence People, Mistborn, Icewind Dale Trilogy, The Wheel of Time Series. A few of my favorite movies: Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, A Knights Tale, Limitless, The Wind Rises, and all classic Disney movies. A few of my favorite quotes: "Anyone can say something mean, it takes the best of people not to."

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel. It has taught me so much, and because of that I am a better person.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission in the Adriatic North Mission.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Michael Heaton
Grace is not to be measured by quantity but rather by magnitude. As we live the gospel of Jesus Christ and truly apply His Atonement in our lives, we are able to receive more grace from the Savior. Think of it this way. We are a cup and His grace is like the liquid that goes inside. As we do all that we can we have the promise that our cups will always be filled to the very top. The size of our cup depends on our actions and how we use our agency to do "all we can do." As we continue to progress in knowledge and light we can become a bigger cup, or in other words, our ability to receive more grace increases. His grace will more fully enable and qualify us. As we continue growing in this way we are, in fact, enduring to the end and will eventually be saved by His grace and only "after all we can do." Show more Show less
