Hi I'm Mark Nygren

I am a business owner, professor of entrepreneurship, and love to travel.

About Me

I am a father of 5 children two boys and three girls. I live in Rexburg, Idaho and teach business at BYU-IDAHO. I love all kinds of sports and travel.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are mostly misunderstood by the world. My primary goal in life is to become a better disciple of Jesus Christ. I love the Bible and the Book of Mormon. The both testify of Jesus Christ. The gospel is centered on Family and helps us become better sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Like most members of the church, we serve in various callings. We have no paid ministry, so we all volunteer. I have been a youth leader and lead my congregation. I have also served on several community boards.

What is being a Mormon like?

Mark Nygren
One of the greatest reasons for being here on earth is to "have joy" (2 Nephi 2:25). Personal prayer, scripture study, and attending church helps us better understand that the best way to find joy and happiness in this life is to know about Our Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness, the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to strive to keep God's "law" (Proverbs 29:18). Families are an essential part of God's Plan and much of how we live focuses on our families. We want to share the happiness we enjoy with everyone we can through service, missionary work, and contributing to society. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Mark Nygren
Missionaries share a message about Jesus Christ and His Atonement for all people. They teach about our Heavenly Father’s great plan of salvation, which allows all people the opportunity to return to Him. Show more Show less
