Hi I'm Marshall Coleman

I live in the South I'm in the chicken business. I've got five fearless daughters. I love to be and to do and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Like many in my community I spend most of my time with my five daughters. They are the "why" of much of my week's activities. While I attended Brigham Young University my wife and I have lived in Florida, Texas and Georgia. We love the South and likely will spend the rest of our lives here if we have a choice. I spend most of my workin' day thinking about making food...lots of food. I've been a supplier to the food and restaurant business for much of the last 15 years. If you've eaten it at a national restaurant chain I've probably had a hand in making it.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always loved the spirituality of my religion. The gospel of Jesus Christ has always been something very spiritual to me. I feel a great connection to the Lord in the Mormon explanation of "why" I am here on earth and what my connection is with Heavenly Father. In addition to the Lord, my family, especially my girls, most define me and help me to grow. Heavenly Father's teaching that heaven is a place where husbands and wives can be together feels right to me. This doctrine defines our family relationship more than anything else.

How I live my faith

From an early age it's been my role to declare the gospel of Jesus Christ. I've always been a gregarious person, which gift has made it an enjoyable calling. Living outside of the West I have many opportunities to share elements of my faith. Whether its the fact I don't drink alcohol or that I attended Brigham Young, I'm always being asked about being a Mormon. Quite frankly I love it. Each Sunday I work with the full time missionaries (yes the ones in white shirts on bikes) to coordinate their efforts and help them find people to teach. It's a lot of hard work, it takes considerable amounts of time, we meet with rejection a lot more than we do success, and it's one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things I do.
