Hi I'm Marcus

I grew up in Texas. I'm a husband, a father, and a bit of a nerd for sports, music, & pop culture. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father to 3 beautiful little girls, and do my best to be a great father despite growing up with only brothers. I'm a young HR professional working for a large company and am trying to figure out what exactly my perfect job looks like and what I need to do to get there. I was lucky enough to fall in love with a wonderful woman in college, and I love every minute I get to spend with her. We enjoy going to concerts, a well done comedy, and discovering great restaurants. When not spending time with my family I enjoy college football and playing the occasional video game. I try and fill my life with as much fun and love as possible!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I am a 5th generation Mormon, I decided as a teenager that I needed to seek the truth on my own. After much thought, reading, and meditation I knelt down and prayed to our Heavenly Father, and I received a witness that the Book of Mormon was the word of God, and that the LDS church was the restored church of our Savior, Jesus Christ, here on the earth. I have received additional confirmations reconfirming the witness I received that day. Being a Mormon has made me a better man, husband, father, and follower of Christ than I could have been otherwise.

How I live my faith

I simply look for opportunities to serve those around me in whatever capacity I can, large or small. Sometime's it's a simple hello and a smile, and sometimes it's doing volunteer work on large projects. I try to see other as Christ would and work to make myself a little better everyday. I don't always succeed, but I have faith in Christ's atonement and know I can overcome my faults through Him.
