Hi I'm Mario

I'm a Mormon. My Great Grandparents joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the late 1800's.

About Me

I am a happily married father of seven. I enjoy cycling and going for walks with my family and our dogs. I am a small business owner. I really enjoy talking to people about the my personal relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. His gospel brings so much hope into my life and helps me to not only deal with the challenges of life, it helps me to become a stronger, better person. Because of the joy and hope that I experience knowing that I am a child of God and I know that because He loves all his children, He has provided a plan that will allow for our family to be an eternal family. I enjoy sharing that message with those that want to feel the same joy and hope that comes from having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a fourth generation Mormon. I have been taught from my youth the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. My parents and grandparents have been great examples to me. As a result of there actions and teachings I have a strong testimony that God lives and that he knows and loves each one of His children. I know that the the Bible and The Book of Mormon and the other canonized scriptures are the word of God and that by following their teachings we can become a righteous God loving people. I know that Joseph Smith was the Prophet of the restoration and that we have a living Prophet today. God's Prophet today is Thomas S. Monson. I know the Jesus is the Christ and that salvation and eternal life comes through His atoning sacrifice and in no other way. I know that as we follow Him will will experience joy and happiness in this life and eternal life and exaltation after our mortal existence here on earth.

How I live my faith

I go to church each Sunday to be with others that believe as I do and to be spiritually uplifted. I partake of the Sacrament each week. This one act helps me so much to strengthen my relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. One of my callings in the church is to teach. I volunteer one night a week and teach an Institute of Religion class. It is great to be with young people that want to learn more about the gospel and come closer to our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ I am so impressed with the confidence and moral strength that our young people exhibit. They show me that despite the challenges and temptations of this life one can maintain strong principles and still have fun enjoy life and experience joy and happiness. I am also very involved with the yearly presentation of the "Jesus The Christ" Easter Pageant. It is a lot of work but it is so wonderful to be part of this wonderful presentation. Over the years I have invited so many friends to view the pageant and they have all expressed how much they have enjoyed it. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps me to know my purpose here in this life and provides me opportunities to help others.
