Hi I'm Mark

I am the second to the youngest child of a large Mormon family of 9 children. I have 6 children of my own. I am a family man.

About Me

I am a Construction Plumber. I put new plumbing in homes and commercial buildings. I am a hands on kind of guy. I love the out doors. I love to hunt, fish, hike, backpack, ride quads and motorcycles, and camp with my friends and family. I am a young men advisor of 12-18 year old boys in my local church group. We participate in the Boy Scouts of America program as well. I love teaching them new skills and helping them perfect their talents.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) religion. I learned early in my childhood years that this church is the only true church on the face of the earth today. I was taught by my parents, family, local church leaders, and through prayer. I have prayed to my Father in Heaven and asked if this church and all of the teachings are true, and have gotten that answer through a burning in my bosom. I love being a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I am currently trying to teach my children of all the teachings of Jesus Christ. They are attending weekly church services and also mid week activities. In our church there are activities mid week for all boys and girls from ages 8-100. I am the president of the young men ages 12-18. It is a wonderful calling in this church. It requires much work, but is very rewarding. These boys are amazing. They have a desire to serve their Father in Heaven. They are respectful, and teachable. We try to take them on an overnight camp out every other month. The boys make all of the suggestions for the activities and do most of the planning. Me and the other Advisers help make sure that everything stays within the guidelines of the church and the BSA handbooks. If i am not at work, spending time with the family, giving service to someone in need, i am spending time with these boys. I love them like my own sons. We are trying to teach them to become honorable men in their communities, respectable members of society, honorable husbands and fathers, and honorable members of our church.
