Hi I'm Marcus

I have glasses. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like doing things that make me use my creativity. I don't like math at all. I lived in Switzerland for a while. I believe that you can choose to be happy, even if things are going so well. I really like baseball and love the smell of freshly mowed grass. Glasses are cooler than contacts.

Why I am a Mormon

I want to have a happy life and I've noticed that following the Gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy. God has restored his church upon the Earth so that we can lead happy lives and have inner peace. True happiness comes from following Jesus Christ and this church helps me to understand who He was/is and what he expects from us and the more I learn of Him, the happier I am.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week to honor God and Jesus Christ and in return I get strengthened for the coming week. I try my best to always love others and not to do things that would disappoint my Heavenly Father. I believe that the most important thing we can do is to love and serve each other, regardless of differences in beliefs, political affiliations, race, etc. I served a mission for the church in Switzerland and was able to spend 2 years of my life serving and helping others come closer to Christ. It was awesome.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

I believe that the purpose of life is to have joy. True, lasting joy is attained when one follows the teachings of Jesus Christ and lives according to his Gospel. We are also here to prepare ourselves to prepare to meet God. We need to do our best to be obedient and do what he asks of us so we can return and live in his presence after this life.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I served a mission because I wanted to invite others to experience that wonders of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many people wouldn't hear anything about the Restoration if nobody told them about it and many people don't even know that they are looking for it until they find it. I was able to see many people's lives change for the better because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ Show more Show less
