He attended his first year of college at California State University, Chico where he met his beautiful wife Carrie. After a year at Chico State Mike transferred to Rick’s College (now known as BYU Idaho) where he graduated with his Associates Degree before serving an LDS mission to the Colombia Bogota South Mission from 1997 – 1999.
Carrie & Mike
Carrie Jones was born in Paradise, CA (a little town outside of Chico, CA). She grew up in Chico and graduated from Pleasant Valley High School after which she attended Rick’s College in Rexburg, ID. Between her freshman and sophomore years of college Carrie returned home to Chico where she met Mike during her summer break.

When Mike returned from his mission Carrie and Mike were soon engaged and married on October 7th, 1999. They settled in Provo Utah to finish their education. Mike completed his bachelors degree in Secondary education, science teaching while Carrie completed a degree in sociology. After graduating the family moved to Manteca, CA where Mike accepted a high teaching position in Tracy, CA. Mya Rachelle Lyman was born in August 2001 a few days after moving to Manteca.
After a year of teaching high school the family decided the timing was right for Mike to return to school to pursue a master’s degree in instructional technology.
