Hi I'm Marius

Born in Sweden, raised in Denmark, pure Norwegian, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 22 year old guy who has lived in five different countries, I am the youngest of three children, currently serving in the Royal Norwegian Air Force and LOVE life. I love to longboard, snowboard, rock climb, hike, dance, have fun, play the guitar, read books... Basically everything I can try, I will. My parents got divorced when I was young, and since then have I lived with my mother until I moved out when I was 18. I have often been the new kid at school or in the neighborhood which has allowed me to make lot of friends in my life, and to learn how to better get to know people. I LOVE my life, it is the best!

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to have parents who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and they taught me righteous principals, but that is not why I am a mormon. When I was younger my family stopped going to Church all together, but all I could think of was why we went in the first place. So I decided to find out for myself if the Church was true. All the Church stands for and teaches is based on the Book of Mormon, so the question I needed to find an answer to, was if the Book of Mormon is true. So I decided to start reading it a little by little, and after a couple of months I decided to ask Our Heavenly Father if the book was true. I knelt down by the couch and expressed my desire to know if it all was true. When I got up on my feet again an assurance, joy and peace pierced my heart and since that moment I knew and still know that the Book of Mormon as the Holy Bible is the word of God given to His Children. Once you really start living the principals of the Gospel of Christ, it does not take long before you see all the blessings that follows with it. I am a Mormon because it gives me understanding and direction in life, and best of all, JOY!

How I live my faith

I just try to be the good guy and do what is right and gentleman like. My parents always told me to be kind and nice to those around me, and so I try to do. Often I will stand out in the crowd because of my beliefs and the way I live to do so accordingly. I try to be a good example to those around me, share with them what is most important to me and that which is a great source of happiness in my life, being my faith. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't work on Sundays. I do study, I do enjoy life, I do follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and try to be like Him. How do I live my faith? I live it by works and being an example.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is the convincing evidence that Jesus is the Christ the Savior and Redeemer of the world. It is a record of Gods dealings with the ancient inhabitants of America and the key to know if Jesus is the Christ, If Joseph Smith Jr was a prophet called of God as in old times, and if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored church of Jesus Christ. It is a second witness to all men and women that God is our Father in heaven, and that He sent His only Begotten to save us. Show more Show less
