Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Dad, Husband, and Physician Assistant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town where I learned the importance of family, faith, and hard work. These are the things that my life is still centered around today. I married my best friend and could not be happier raising 4 small children that I believe came straight from heaven. I have been fortunate to find a career that I love. The best thing about being a physician assistant in a rural Arizona community is the lasting friendships that I develop with the people I help take care of. I love seeing them at the grocery store, post office and other community events.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and my faith in Christ has grown as I have studied his word and associated with and served with members of the Mormon church. I have served in the church since I was 12 years old: preparing, passing, and blessing the sacramental bread and water, visiting members of the church, teaching classes, giving talks, serving a full time proselyting mission, and acting as president of several organizations within the church. I believe that as we minister to others, that our relationship with Christ is strengthened, and that we come to know him better. I know that he wants us to serve each other, and my life has been blessed as I have done this.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best father, husband, and friend that I can. I am faithful in my dealings with others in the business place, and try to lift up others. I would like others to see how happy I am, and realize that the happiness I feel comes from the teachings of Jesus Christ. I enjoy working with the young men in our congregation. I get to spend an hour each Sunday teaching them about the Heavenly Fathers plan for them. I also get to spend a couple of hours throughout the week organizing and participating in recreational and service activities.
