Hi I'm Marshall Dowell

I'm 20 years old, a quesadilla enthusiast, love playing basketball, and enjoy lunchtime naps.

About Me

My name is Marshall Dowell. I am currently serving a mission in South Carolina. I love playing basketball and hanging out with my friends. I also love ceramics and wearing Hawaiin shirts so I always look like I am on vacation. My favorite food is quesadillas. Because they are both delicious and simple. If I had a superpower it would be to create Polaroid pictures out of thin air. One day I hope to be known for my moderate bowling skill, and the passion with which I bowl moderately. I play the cello, piano, guitar, ukelele, and banjo. The best thing about me is my family, my brother, two sisters, and loving parents!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I became a Mormon is because my parents are. But the reason I stayed a Mormon is because of the love I have felt and the healing power of the atonement that I have seen in my life. I know God loves me and that He wants me to be happy. This gospel is how I have had and can continue to have joy in my life. Without it I wouldn't be the person I am. I am so grateful for this gospel and the blessings it has brought into my life. Because of it I know where to turn for peace and comfort, as well as for love and growth..

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving! As a full time missionary in the South Carolina Columbia Mission I have the opportunity to serve and share the gospel every day. I also live my faith by living and adhering to the standard set forth by the church. I made this a habit in high school and have the blessings of it each and every day.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Marshall Dowell
The purpose of life is to learn and grow. God loves us so much, that He wants us to be loved and happy. So while we are here we are given a family that can be eternal to develop in and become more like out Heavenly Father Show more Show less
