Hi I'm Mark

I'm from Southern California. I'm a sports enthusiast. I'm a triathlete. I'm a husband and a father of four. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah but raised in Southern California. I love anything that has to do with sports or being in the outdoors. I have completed marathons and competed in triathlon races. I love traveling and spending time with my family. I have a love of learning that has taken me 35 years to find and develop. I enjoy my vocation which blends business with a delicate human element in taking care of the elderly.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon but as a young teenager had to decide for myself whether or not I was going to commit to live the teachings of the church and follow what I learned as a child. I decided to read the Book of Mormon and ask if the teachings were true. I read the Book of Mormon and asked God in prayer if what I was reading was true. I received an answer to my prayer by the feelings I had in my heart. Since that time I have committed to follow the teachings and principles of the church. I love being a Mormon because it provides a solid foundation and direction for all of life's decisions. I have seen the difference the church has made in my life when I make a concerted effort to live the principles. Life is not always easy but I have been able to find peace and comfort in staying true to my knowledge. Every good thing that has happened to me in my life and whatever success I have achieved I can trace back to my beliefs.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in the activities of the church on a weekly basis. I attend church services on Sundays and any activities that may occur during the week. I am actively involved in teaching, training, and mentoring young men 16 to 18 years of age. I enjoy interacting socially with other adult members and sharing with them. I enjoying serving people around me and helping in any way I can.
