Michael J. Smith

I was born and raised in Southwest Missouri, growing up in Ozark and currently living in Springfield for both school and work. I like to live my life in order of the four "F's": Faith, Family, Functionality (work), and Friends. I am a member of Hopedale Baptist Church in Ozark and serve in the areas of youth, college, media and web. God has blessed me with so much in my life which in turn has allowed me to be a blessing to others. My family is very important to me with my parents, brothers, sisters in law, and the most beautiful girl in the whole wide world: my niece! I hope to have a family of my own someday, but enjoy the benefits that the single life offers for now. The influence and support of my faith and family have lead me to have a good work ethic and learn the skills necissary to be effective in my professional life. I measure success not just in the size of the paycheck I bring home, but in the satisfaction that comes with knowing I have done something positive and productive with my day. Finally, I enjoy spending time with my friends. If it is going to see a movie, on a road trip, out to eat, Bible study, anything; I enjoy the time I can be around others! That is just a little about me. To the right are some interests and hobbies I enjoy partaking in. If you have any other questions about me, please feel free to ask.
