Hi I'm Michael

About Me

I am currently a student and sometimes find myself wondering if I will ever not be a student. I live in a great house filled with friends I have found along the way. It is a full house. They keep me great company when I am missing my family and the homelife. I spend every bit of my free time climbing, canyoneering, biking, backpacking. You name it and I am or will be trying it. Most of all, I just love having good people in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have suffered with the lack of belonging my whole life. I think we all do. But there are certain gospel principles that fill that void time and again. I think we sometimes make a connect between the number of people in our life to belonging. However, I have learned that belonging extends much deeper. As I learn more of how we are all children of our Heavenly Father, I am more and more convinced of my belonging. We are not a product of some galactic event of chaos. We are wound together, each as a child of God. More so, as I receive strength and wholeness from Christ, He pulls me into His guidance providing me with the security I long for during the moments and periods of emptiness in life. As I learn about and apply the truths of the Gospel, my life is filled. So is my heart. This is an emptiness I have seen in many, if they only knew what I knew.

How I live my faith

I love learning about my heritage through family history research. I learn so much about myself as I learn more about those that came before me. I appreciate the foundation of faith they have laid for me and recognize that it is now my turn to do so for my future family. Currently, I help others in my congregation with their family history research. Right now we are organizing classes to teach our community about developing their own family history. Our families are the basic societal unit in which all of the needed life principles are taught. I love my family dearly. I consider them one of the finest blessings my Heavenly Father could have ever given me. I look forward to the journey I will make, hopefully starting soon, in which I will be able to start my own family. I view the greatest gift I could ever return to my community is to consecrate all that I have to my future family.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Michael
We are already apart of your life: Just ask around. We are the store cashier, the accountant, the fight attendant, the fireman, the neighbor. I love sharing with others what means most to me. However, I am sensitive to those around me. If I sense if someone feels vulnerable, I will respect their space and continue to be a part of their life until the right moment to share the most important part of my life. I consider those who are my closest friends to be the ones with whom I can have an open and intimate discussion about our beliefs. Show more Show less
