Hi I'm Mark H

Being a Mormon is the happiest way to live.

About Me

I am married and a father of three children. I received my Bachelors degree from Brigham Young University. I received my Master degree in Business Administration (MBA) from Colorado State University. I have lived in variety of places in the USA. I have lived in Colorado for last 12 years. I am in software sales. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My family’s activities such as school and sporting events keep my schedule busy. I also enjoy serving in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon). However as I grew up, I had to decide for myself if I wanted to also be a Mormon. I am so glad that I have decided to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is my foundation in my life. It affects so many aspects of my life. There were many factors that helped me to determine that I wanted to be Mormon. I had some great examples such as family and friends that lived the teachings in the Mormon church. I saw how they were happy when they followed the teachings in the Mormon church. So I followed the teachings in the Mormon church, I was also happy. For example, I studied the teachings in scriptures and I have come to love the scriptures. Then I have also come to realize that as we communicate with our Heavenly Father through prayer, he will direct and comfort us through the Holy Ghost. Then as we serve others, we feel the Holy Ghost and our lives are blessed.

How I live my faith

Following the teachings in Mormon church, has given me great strength. Members of the Mormon church get to serve in a variety ways. One is through callings. Each member has a calling. These callings allow us to serve and strengthen the church. In return, we are strengthen. I have served in a variety callings and have found great joys in each one. Congregations in the Mormon church are called Wards. In my ward, I serve with current leader of the Ward which is called the Bishop. I counsel with him and how we can strengthen the members of our Ward. I get to work with all the members of the Ward. I also serve as Home Teacher in our ward. Home Teachers are asked to watch over a few families to make sure they are happy and to help with any needs that they have. I have found great joy in serving as Home Teacher.
