Hi I'm Martin

and I own a landscape maintenance company and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Martin, I own a landscaper maintenance company and I am 49 year old, I have been married for 28 years and have two amazing kids and have two grandkids. I have played the trumpet and been involved in Choirs and music most of my life. I am married to an amazing person who is a wonderful music teacher and has devoted her life to changing lives through music. I love anthing to do with high tech---computers, ipads, smartphones, cameras, all of it. Love making videos and all forms of photography. Love sports, but due to injuries,now only play golf. I am an eagle scout and have worked with youth most of my life. I have been a scout master, a cub master, and varsity coach and have been involved with scouting most of my life. I love the qualities it teaches which can help you througout your whole life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I served a mission in Indiana. I was married to my wife in the Mesa Az Temple for time and all eternity. My testimony of this gospel has grown over the years as I have chosen to strive to live the gospel standards and follow the teachings of our living prophet and apostles. I can't imagine facing todays trials and challenges without the blessings and teachings of these modern day prophets. I know my Heavenly Father knows and loves me and blesses me and my family and helps me get through anything that is thrown in my way. I know that Jesus Christ died for my sins and has made it possible through his attonement for me to be able to return and live with Him and our Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I love serving in the Church. I am currently serving as the 1st counselor in our Ward Bishopric. I am currently also the charter organization representative, in charge of all of the scouting program in the ward which includes Cubs, Scouts, Varsity, and Venture programs. I also serve as as hometeacher; yet another thing I love because it gives me an opportunity to get to know and look out for other families in the ward. I love these opportunities to serve as this is how I gain true happiness and fulfillment in my life.
