Hi I'm Mark

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have been blessed with six children we stay pretty busy supporting their activities at school, scouts, extracurricular athletics and clubs. We enjoy spending time together, often we are together watching the a game or match or performance of one of the children. We play games and sports together the younger children are dutiful spectators even though they sometimes tire of watching so many games. They are getting old enough that they have their own activities that we can support too. I travel on business often, so returning home is my favorite hobby.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful that I was taught of Christ my entire life. In some lines of our family history, our ancestors joined the LDS church at its very beginning. In other lines, it was my grandparents who joined the Church as adults. I don't remember a time when I did not have faith in Christ. I have tried to live my faith, and I find that as I strive to accept the Savior and His Atonement, my reliance upon Him and my love for Him grows. I find good in other people and faiths. My excitement for the restored Gospel is in it's acknoweledgement of all truth. There is much we do not know, but I love to feel connected through Christ to the people of the Old Testament, to the excitement recorded in the New Testament, to the Christians as recorded in the Book of Mormon, and to Christians today. I love knowing that we have a living prophet in our day, just as those peoples had. I have a witness from the Holy Ghost that these things are true.

How I live my faith

I try to live Christ's teachings in day to day life. At home. At work. In the community. For me that means loving God through obedience to His commandments and loving my neighbor through honesty, kindness, and service. My son and I visit several families each month, seeking opportunities to serve them and sharing our testimonies of Christ. My wife serves the young women in organization of our congregation. We ready scriptures and pray together as a family. We attend worship services each week and we attend the Temple regularly. Our children lead in their youth groups too.

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

Our spirit continues to live, awaiting resurrection and final judgment. Between His crucification and resurrestion, Christ taught the spirits of those that had died without knowing of Him. This teaching process continues in that same realm. Because of the Atonement of Christ we have the chance to be cleansed from our sins which will allow us to ultimately return to live with our Heavenly Father and Savior. Show more Show less
