Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Mormon who grew up in South Carolina, USA and now lives in Utah, USA.

About Me

I grew up in South Carolina but moved to Utah during my junior year of high school for my father's work. Growing up, I have been involved in marching band (playing the trumpet), playing little league football, and playing basketball. I also enjoy drawing. Being tall, basketball is my favorite sport and people tell me I am quite good at it. I hope to play at college when I return from my mission. I am also an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was born a member of the church, my parents are converts to the church. Most of my extended family are not members. I see them searching for understanding of where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going when we pass on. As a member of the church, I have been given an answer and understanding of these questions. The great thing is, with this understanding, we can share the message of the love of our Heavenly Father with others and help them find the same purpose and understanding and help give their lives direction. It is a great feeling helping others realize the love our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for us and seeing the wonderful change it makes in their lives. Knowing or Heavenly Father lives and is real and that repentance is possible and allows us to return to His presence is an amazing feeling and being able to share that message and see it make a positive difference in the lives of others is an even greater feeling.

How I live my faith

I have been active in my church from an early age. I have played basketball, participated in scouting, and I sing in the choir. I am excited to tell people about my personal relationship with my Savior, which is why I decided to serve a two year mission, away from family and friends; I want to share the gospel with all of my brothers and sisters here on the earth.
