Hi I'm Mario

I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a father of 4, I work full time, and go to school. I like to camp, go fishing, and hang out with my wife and kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I spent many years searching for fulfillment in my spirituality. After finding religions that were good, but did not give me that fulfillment feeling, I was introduced to the church by someone close to me, and I have heard bad things about Mormons, but wanted to find out for myself what the church was about. I went to church and learned a lot. I was hesitant to meet with the missionaries, yet I still did to hear what they had to say. I prayed for the first time in years with them when they came to teach me. I felt a light around them, I read the book of Mormon, I prayed about it, and continued to go to church and pray. I felt right, but I still had questions that the world had put out there. I prayed and my questions were immediately answered through prayer. It was very fulfilling to be baptized and to be part of a church where nothing felt missing anymore. That is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by seeking opportunity to serve others. I am called to create my ward sacrament bulletin(agenda) each week which I love to do. I do what is asked of me, mostly little things since there are so many members that anything we need to do gets done in no time. I also help people move in and out of the neighborhood when needed, any help I can give I do, and I get a lot out of it. It is nice to help others and see their faces when they have so much to accomplish, and a group of people come and shoulder the burden with them. I feel like none of us is alone in this world even though the world sometimes makes it seem like we are. Doing what is right is also how I live my faith. I know what the Lord asks of me, and when I live my life right, I am blessed with knowledge of the spirit, and how to lead my family in love and righteousness.
