Hi I'm Michael

I'm from sweden, plays soccer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 20 year old guy from sweden. I have three siblings and I spend most of my time playing soccer, hanging out with friends and enjoing time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born and raised in the church. Most of the time I went to church because of the friends I had made there. But when my friends outside the church asked me why i didn't play games on sundays, my only answer was because I'm in church. The question from my friends absorbed every thought in my mind, it was the only thing I could think of. Why did I go to church instead of playing soccer. I started to question if the church was something for me. One time in church I heard a person say that he knew that the church and gospel was true and that everyone can find out for themselves. When I heard that I made up my mind, I wanted to find out if it was true or not! So I could use the church time for other things if the church wasn't true. So I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to heavenly father. My expectations were high, I expected something tremendous to happen but I didn't recieve any big answer. I felt really good while I was reading and praying but I wanted a big and super powerfull answer. So I continued to pray and a week later, after I prayed, I got these peacefull feelings and thoughts. All I could think about was Why are you even asking? You already know it's true. And I do know that now! The church is true! And everyone that takes the time to read and pray about the Book of Mormon will know the same thing. It will bless your life and the life of your family.  

How I live my faith

The way I am living my faith is pretty simple. I am trying to follow the example that christ set when he was here on the earth. He taught love on another and that is what I and everyone else in the church are trying to live by. But I have noticed that when I Live the gospel of Jesus Christ I have feelings of peace and comfort in my life. I have the same interests and problems as every other 20 year old guys. But I have come to know that if we accept Jesus Christ in our life and let him help us, everything else seem to fall into place. I have tried both ways, on my own and with heavenly father by my side. And I prefer not being on my own.
