Hi I'm M. Banks

I grew up in Southern California. I now live in Montana and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 4 children and I married to the love of my life and my best friend. After graduating from college I went into the banking industry. My family and I enjoy the outdoors, swimming, fisihing, playing board games and many other activities. We enjoy spending time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church. However, I did not fully appreciate the blessings of the church in my life untill I went to serve a 2 year mission for the church in Hong Kong. It was there that I came to a better understanding of the Mission of Jesus Christ. It was there that I came to understand our Heavenly Father's plan for our happiness. It was there that I learned to recognize spiritual feelings and promptings. Since that time I have tried my best to follow the Savior's example and live the teachings found in the Mormon church. The Book of Mormon plays a key role in helping me do this.

How I live my faith

I am currently the bishop of the ward I live in. I have the overall responsibility for ministering the temporal and spiritual affairs of our congregation. I do not get paid for this responsibility but I have been blessed with opportunites to serve others and see how God blesses our lives daily.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

M. Banks
No we do not. We do honor him and are very grateful for the experiences he had. We believe he is a prophet who was chosen by God to help restore Christ's true church here on earth.. Show more Show less
