Hi I'm Michael Palmer

I have lived all over the US since my father was in the Marines. I like outdoor activities. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I enjoy snowboarding, surfing, shooting, dirt biking, and history. I will be attending Brigham Young University after my mission. I have lived all over the US, which ranges from Maryland to Hawaii. I do enjoy traveling to different areas and seeing what they are like. I also have a great family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church but that doesn't mean that I don't have a strong testimony. I've been surrounded by nonmembers my entire life and many of them do see a difference between my behavior and others and there really is a difference. There also comes a time in everyone's live when they must ask themselves "what do I believe in". So I did that and took up Moroni's challenge to read the Book of Mormon. I read it and prayed to God if it was true, and I received an answer saying that it is true. I also have a strong testimony of the love that God and Jesus Christ has for everyone. I've seen the hand of the Lord in my life multiple times and I know that I'm blessed to be in this Church.

How I live my faith

I go to every meeting that I am needed at. I try to attend all the activities that I can get to since most of them are entertaining. I'm also teaching a class of children which is quite a handful, but it is a great experience. The youth are very good to be around since they all have strong testimonies and enjoy having great times. I also try to expand my knowledge of the Gospel by attending some institute classes, which I would highly recommend.
