Hi I'm Mark Newman

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have been blessed with four children. Our oldest daughter is a school teacher. Our oldest son is now married to a wonderful young lady and they are finishing up their education at Brigham Young University - Idaho. Our youngest son begins his mission service to Brazil this year and will be there for two years. Our youngest daughter is home and enjoying High School. We love traveling together, bike riding and spending time together. I love photography, reading and running.

Why I am a Mormon

Because the Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ has changed my life for the better. It has and continues to make me a better person and a much better father and husband. I honestly do not know what I would be if I were not a member of the Church. Knowing that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that I can live forever with my family is so meaningful to me. It has given me a much deeper meaning to living and helps me understand life so much better.

How I live my faith

I bring my family together everyday..well, almost every day...to study the scriptures for a few minutes and to pray together. I'm striving to know the Savior, Jesus Christ better and do my best to think about that example and live accordingly. It's a process and I'm doing the best I can to get better in that pursuit. I find that it makes me happy when I reach out to others and try to help them.
