Hi I'm Mark

I love hockey. I love the outdoors. And I love that. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hockey it is one of my favorite things in this world. I also love the outdoors; camping, hiking, rafting, fishing, and everything!!! In high school I also played lacrosse and ran cross country. I am an Eagle Scout and really enjoyed the scouting experience when I was younger. I have attended Brigham Young University for a year and I have hopes of going to Medical school and become a surgeon one day.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel so blessed in my life with all that I have been given by the lord. I have such a great family, wonderful friends, the oppertunity to grow up in such a great country, where we have the oppertunity to gain an education, and practice freedom of religion. Which brings me to my greatest gift in life, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm a mormon because of the knowledge, the joy, and the peace it brings to my life. The gospel of Jesus Christ forms me into the person I want to be. I have been able to feel the miracle of repentance in my life, the ability to be clean of the sins we have made. I have a strong testimony and know that no matter what anyone has done they are able to become clean and be forgiven through the suffering of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that this church is true through the way The Bible and The Book of Mormon both tell us how we can know of truth. I have had the desire to know and prayed about, things such as, if the book of mormon is true, if Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and if this church is true in its fullness. Then I have showed my faith by acting upon the principles of his gospel, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the Holy Ghost I have gained the greatest knowledge I believe I have, and that is the Knowledge of the truth. I know this gospel is true. It is the only church which has at its head a prophet of God, who holds the Priesthood of God. I know that Christ's Gospel, along with the priesthood of God, was restored through Joseph Smith the first prophet of this dispensation. I know that today we have a living modern-day prophet, Thomas S. Monson. Through him we are able to know the will of God. I know God is my loving Heavenly Father and he is your Loving Heavenly Father also. You can know these things for yourself too in the same manner that I have come to this knowledge. Have a desire, read and meditate about The Book of Mormon, pray with a sincere heart, a then show your faith and follow christ. You will know of their truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith at the moment by serving our Heavenly Father for 2 years on a full time mission. I am spending this part of my life in Mexico helping children of Our Heavenly Father come to a knowledge of him and come unto Christ. This time of my life is bringing me more happiness then anything else could at the moment. Nothing is greater then watching someone come unto Christ. Before my mission I was incharge of making sure everyone in my congregation(that we call a ward) was visited each month and and recieved the help they needed. I also served in the youth leadership of the ward I attended. I lived my faith also in high school by serving In my community. I was part of my high school leadership class for 2 years. I also was part of National Honor Society for two years where we preformed fundraisers and service in our comunity. Another time I was able to serve was in our youth progam service projects and also scout service projects. Particually my Eagle Scout Project where I designed, raised $1500 for, and then built a bridge for a non-profit organization that helps provide Natural therapy with children with disabilities. We are so blessed in this life, we must do as christ commanded and give to those less fortanante.
