Hi I'm Mark

I grew up in Satellite Beach, FL. I like to surf, ride bikes and camp. I am a father of 3 and a husband and I am LDS.

About Me

I am currently a full-time student working on my Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology. I work part-time at a Physical Therapy office as a technician. When I graduate I plan to enroll in a Physician Assistant program. I have been married for 8 years and have a 4 year old son and a two year old daughter. I enjoy surfing, camping, hiking, snow boarding, canyoneering, bikes of all kinds and taking pictures.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me a better and happier person. For me, being LDS is more than just going to church on Sunday it affects who I am as a father/husband, employee and friend. The restored Gospel has not only strengthened my faith in my Savior but continues to bless all aspects of my life.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to work with the youth ages 12-18 at church. Through my service with the young men I have had many wonderful experiences camping in the mountains, going on 50 mile backpacking hikes and rappeling through slot canyons. The small sacrifice of my time and energy is always off-set by the awesome adventures and great friendships gained through church service/involvement.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A "testimony" is something you know or believe through personal experience and the witness of the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less
