Hi I'm Marcus

I like to sing and play the piano. I love pizza. I love hanging out with my friends and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently studying to be a meteorologist. I play the piano, not as well as I would like, but I can still play. I want to someday have a good job and a family. I am happy with my life and love living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the atonement and want to understand it more fully.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because i love this church and couldnt imagine my life without it. The people in the church are all very friendly. I have gone to chruch my entire life. Even though I was born in the church, I had to find out for myself if I wanted to continue to go to church. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church on the earth today and that is why I am a Mormon, because I know.

How I live my faith

I always follow what the prophets say and live my life how I should. The prophets do not limit what you can and cant do, they suggest things you shouldnt do and I use my agency and choose to follow the prophet and all the commandments.

In whom should we have faith?

Marcus
We should have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and in God. In order to gain this faith, you have to study the scriptures. In the Old Testament, in Joshua 24:15 it says "Choose you this day whom ye will serve... As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Not only do you have to study, but you have to make the choice to have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in Heavenly Father. We need faith in Jesus Christ because he is how we are saved. Through Him and His sacrifice for us (the atonement) we are all able to be resurected and gain our body's back after we die. Also through Him and His grace, we are able to return to live with our Heavenly Father. Without His grace, we would not be able to get even to Heaven all by ourselves. To have faith in God is more than just believing in him. Its to trust Him, to have confidence in Him, and you have to be willing to act on your beleif in Him. If you believe in Him, He might ask from time to time you to do something to help Him. You have to be trusting enough to know He wont let you fail or get hurt or embarrased. You have to be willing to put yourself out there with what He asks, because sometimes He will ask you to do something your not accustomed to. Show more Show less
