Hi I'm Marc
I'm a family man, media analyst and a baseball fan. I'm a Mormon.
I was raised on three continents as we moved often with my Dad being an Air Force pilot. I was born in France and attended middle school on an air base in Japan. When my parents finally settled down early in my high school years, I was ready to put down roots. I wanted to be able to answer the simple question, “Where are you from?” I now call suburban Utah my home. I have been blessed with a wonderful wife and together we have three married children & five grandchildren who brighten our days. I tend to be analytical, perhaps to a fault. I even analyze my analysis. In my profession I apply those skills to the marketing communications world. I have been privileged to be a part of the team charged with finding the best way to communicate the truths of the gospel to the world. And although I’m approaching 30 years since I graduated from college, in many ways I feel like I’m starting over in my career because of the way the internet and technology has dramatically changed communications. The transition has been challenging but exciting. I enjoy team sports although my playing days are over. I’m particularly drawn to baseball with its lengthy and storied history and its wealth of statistics that begs for analysis.
Why I am a Mormon
Here is where analysis fails me in that I can’t point to a proof or a decision matrix for support. My faith is founded mostly in feelings. I have repeatedly found feelings of peace, joy and comfort as I’ve tried to follow the teachings of Christ as taught in His restored Church. I can also say I have felt the absence of those feelings when I have strayed from those teachings. It is my testimony that those feelings are from the Holy Ghost who testifies of truth. Some would have you believe that observing a religion is only about improving your lot in the hereafter. I certainly believe that but for me I have found the most happiness here and now by practicing the teaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
How I live my faith
Hopefully the best expression of my faith is following Christian principles towards God and others. I also serve in our local church organization teaching an adult Sunday School class.
