Hi I'm Joshua Mark

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student working on a bachelors degree in Ancient Near Eastern Studies. My favorite activities in the world always involve my wife, Erin. I am an avid sports fan, and a major fan of the Boston Red Sox, Utah Jazz, New England Patriots, Calgary Flames and of course college sports.  

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found that within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true and everlasting happiness. By living the principles as set forth in the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, I have found true joy, contentment, and peace, knowing that I am doing the things that Jesus Christ himself would do. I know that the things that are taught within in the church are true and faithful because of the affirmation that I have received through the Holy Spirit, or Holy Ghost. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that he has appeared and continues to appear to lead and guide his church. I know that he works under the direction of a Heavenly Father who loves all of his children here on Earth and wants the best for each of us. Most of all, I know that through Jesus Christ and the fulness of his Gospel, I have become a better person and will continue to become better if I follow His example and teachings.

How I live my faith

As a member, I participate in numerous groups and organizations. Currently both my wife and I serve at the LDS temple. I also enjoy sharing my faith with others in the community and participate in organizations that advocate interfaith dialogue and a peaceful setting in which religious views can be shared without threat or pressure. I work with the youth and participate as a leader in the local Venturing crew. I seek to follow the teachings of a living prophet and seek to do the things that he counsels us to do in our lives to make the world a better, more Christlike place to live.
