Hi I'm Mark Harris

I'm a Husband, Dad, Fire Distrect Board President, and Jeep Lover. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am married, I'm a dad and love my wife and Kids. I enjoy being in the mountains fishing, hiking and sometimes just driving through to enjoy the view. When I say drive through, I mean with my CJ7 Jeep that can take me lots of places. I work as a Transmission Service Operator for a great company in Colorado. I work to help keep electricity flowing reliably. It is my job to make sure there isn't too much scheduled on the electric system. I have an amazing family that I love to be with, wonderful children who meet me at the door when I come home from work with big hugs! We have so much fun when we all get together. Family reunions are important to me! I want my children to know their Aunts and Uncles. I am always amazed how close my kids are with their cousins because we get to see them at least once a year.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church with parents that loved me. I still had to find out for myself weather the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true or not. When I was 14, I wanted to know for myself. My parents had testimonies of the truthfulness of the gospel but I wonted my own testimony. I have issues when I read, I don't always understand what I read somtimes. I had read the Book of Mormon lots as a kid but didn't understand what it was saying. I needed to know it was true because if the Book of Mormon isn't true then everything else that I believed was false too. I nelt down and prayed to my Father in Heaven and asked if the Book of Mormon was true and if I could know that for myself. I prayed with a desire to know and understand the Book of Mormon. After Praying I got up and sat on my bed and started to read in a random spot. It was awesome! I not only understood the scriptures I was reading, I felt the spirit whisper to me that the Lord wanted me to understand and love the scriptures. I knew that what I was reading was true and I wanted to learm more, for myself, the truthfulness of the Mormon Faith. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and his teachings. I Feel the Spirit as I am at church and as I do things that are right. I will always know that my Father in Heaven loves me. and I can always pray to know, in more detail, what the Lord wants for me.

How I live my faith

My family has fun doing our duties at church and outside the church too. I work with all the members to help them move forward in their lives. We have had flooding go through the area and wreck peoples homes and lives. We have had the chance to help with the cleanup process. It feels so good to see people get back on their feet because of you and others efforts. I am a Home Teacher which means we visit families in the church. My families I get to visit are some of the best people. Home Teaching makes sure the families of the church are doing well. It is a time to spiritually uplift and edify those that need it.
