Hi I'm Mitch

I train professional sales teams. I love ice cream. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy racquetball and making short videos in my free time. I love to learn, and soak up anything I can in relation to new technology, history, politics, and family relations. I love working with people and helping them to achieve their goals. One of these days I am going to write books about business...

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a family that believed in the Mormon faith. It was not until I grew older that I found out for myself that the Mormon faith was where I wanted to be. As I prayed and studied the scriptures, my feeling were confirmed by overwhelming feelings deep inside of me. As I practiced the principles taught in church and the scriptures, I found great peace, joy, and direction. The Church gives me direction on how to support my family, live a Christ-like life, and love others more fully. My life is rich and purposeful as I live the teachings of the Church.

How I live my faith

I enjoy attending church every week with my family. It brings us closer to the Savior and to each other. We dedicate one night a week specifically for the family, called family home evening. We discuss gospel related topics and how to implement them into our lives to grow closer to God and each other. My wife and I take turns preparing a short lesson. These activities help us to remember Jesus Christ and remind us of how to live our lives on a daily basis.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Mitch
We believe that husband and wife can be together forever, not just until death. Because marriage is an eternal commitment, my perspective is different than those who see marriage as a temporary situation. As we are married with the proper authority, live according to the promises we make with God and our spouse, we are promised that when we die, we will be reunited with our family. This encourages me to live like the Savior daily, and helps me to not fear death because I know that this Earth life is a temporary state, and I will be with my family forever. My wife is my best friend, and we are building an eternal relationship. Show more Show less

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Mitch
Temples are used to strengthen the members of the Church and perform necessary ordinances. My wife and I were married in the temple by an authorized servant of God. This means we can be together forever, nut just until death. The temple gives us the opportunity to learn more about God and his plan for his children. It helps us focus on what is important in this life. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Mitch
The Book of Mormon helps me learn how to communicate with my Heavenly Father. When I pray to feel peace, I feel that peace when I read in the Book of Mormon. It teaches me how to exercise faith, serve others, and to trust God. Show more Show less
