Hi I'm Mark

I grew up a farmboy. My family is my world. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love shooting and hunting. I love playing soccer and hanging out with friends. My greatest joy is my beautiful wife and daughter.

Why I am a Mormon

In high school I had alot of Mormon friends. Their examples and the way that their families interacted with eachother really impressed me. I wanted to have a family like they did. I wanted my family to get along like they did, to love like they did, and to be happy like they were. I didn't know it then, but what I wanted was a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I have found those things in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that following the example of the Savior and the counsel of living prophets and apostles has made me a better and happier person. It has made me a better husband and father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through everything I do. My actions and my words are a product of my faith. I strive to be a good example to those around me and leave each person I talk to feeling better about themselves afterwards. I have the opportunity monthly to visit other members of my congregation. I get to share my testimony and feelings about my Savior with them, as well as serve them and assist them with any needs they have. I cherish the chance to forget myself and serve others around me.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

No. We do not worship Joseph Smith. We view Joseph Smith similar to Moses, Abraham, Noah, or Elijiah. He was a prophet, called by God to teach all of us who God is, what He asks of us, and that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Absolutely. The assurance that I can be with my wife and children after this life and forever is one of the greatest blessings I have. It changes the way I look at my wife and how I treat her. I know that no matter what could or may happen to anyone in my family, it isn't the end; we will be together again after this life. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

As members of the Church we are deeply grateful for the blessings we have been given and the knowledge we have the God speaks to prophets and apostles today. This is why our missionaries proselyte: to invite others to come unto Christ and receive the wonderful knowledge that Christ's Church is again on the earth and that our families can be together forever.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No. But as one who has served a mission, I count it as one of the greatest blessings of my life. It has affected who I am as a person, a son, brother, husband and father. Show more Show less
