Hi I'm Marco

I am Italian, I am a project manager in construction, I am a bee-keeper. I am a husband, a father and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Life is a beautiful experience if you get the best of it! I had the blessing to marry a great woman. I am the father of four children. I love spending time with my family. I have studied Architecture in Rome and I work as a project manager in construction. I love to do many things that keep me busy and teach me a lot. I am a bee-keeper, I love to grow a vegetable garden and to eat its fruits! I love nature, in fact my house is in the middle of a grove. I like playing sports, especially soccer and basketball and I love good Italian food!

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of this Church at the age of 19 after I had known this faith for more than 15 years. My mom taught me and my brothers and sister, the principles of the restored Gospel since we were born and we all received a sure testimony of its truthfulness when we were liettle children. Even though I had to pass several trials before the day of my conversion, today I am thankful for all the adversity that built stronger and stronger my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and my knowledge of His restored Church. As I decided to put God at the center of my life, I saw in an amazing way how God blessed every aspect of it. As I was born as a Catholic in Italy, I knew that the Bible was the word of God; I am a mormon because I know that also the book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God called almost 200 years ago to restore the Church that Jesus Himself estabilished when He was walking on earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith trying to do my best to put into practice the Gospel priciples in every circumstance where I am. To love God means to obey to His laws. Jesus taught a simple law: love one another. I try to demonstrate my love to God by loving those around me. Gospel is simple: a smile, help to those in need, comfort to the afflicted, listening to those who are not heard and visit those who are alone. I also try to keep a constant prayer in my heart to be able to recognize and follow the whisperings that come from the Holy Spirit. These are some of the very simple things that make a big difference in my life.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Marco
When missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints visit your home, they will share with you the truths of the Plan of Salvation. You will come to know about the purpose of life and the way we can return to our Heavenly Father and live forever in a state of Joy with those we love. You can ask them questions that will help you to better understand how to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in your life and receive all the blessings that came from the obedience to God's laws. They will teach you about the Restoration of the Gospel and of the Church of Jesus Christ. They will bring a sweet Spirit of joy and love to you and your family as you prayerfully listen to them. They will tell you why we believe that families are forever. I had the privilege to serve as a full-time missionary in the Paris France Mission; those two years were the best years of my life; I met many people that become eternal friends with whom I shared experiences that have made me a better man, husband, father, citizen and worker. I promise you will have a great experience as you invite these young Servants of the Lord into your homes! Show more Show less
