Hi I'm Mark

I love the beach. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! So I come from a family of five. I am the youngest and have an older brother and sister. I love them all a ton even though we are pretty spread out across the country. I grew up in Washington state and enjoy swimming and going to Hawaii on vacation. I really like swimming, especially in Hawaii, because when you are out in the water you can forget everything. Everything is just chill, there's sealife, etc. The beach is the perfect environment to just relax. God created a beautiful world full of nature and we should enjoy it. It is full of beauty. I love being in Washington state because there is nature everywhere. I dream of traveling the world and seeing new places. I want to go on trips and meet new people wherever I go. I am enrolled at Brigham Young University in Utah. I am studying Mandarin. With this I can hopefully branch out more with whatever I decide to do in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want what this church has to offer me. I want an eternal family. I want to be married in a temple. I think that is awesome. This church teaches me to respect and love other people and to serve them. I love serving people. I know that we are all God's children. So it is pretty cool knowing that everyone in the world has this in common. I also know that one day I can have a family of my own to travel with and experience life. I learned in church that God created all things. So I can go outside and see the trees and the ocean and all living things, and know that God created them. That is pretty awesome. I feel closer to God when I am outside. Ultimately, I think this church gives me a happy lifestyle, which is why I enjoy being a member. It's great. I don't do things that some people do such as smoke or drink alcohol, but I can drink apple juice and be just as happy.

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ teaches that we need to love our neighbor. I try and follow Jesus Christ's example by loving everyone. I try and be nice and help my friends and family members. I am also willing to help people I do not know, if they need help. I also try and live my faith by being an example to other people. I know that sometimes there is a right and wrong decision, and I hope that if I am with other people I can make the right decision. I also am serving a 2 year mission for my church, so that other people can enjoy the blessings of the church that I enjoy! Jesus Christ taught that "He that loses his life shall find it." Serving a two year mission helps me to learn to put other people before me. I hope that in these 2 years I can learn a lot from other people. I know that by doing this, I will grow so much.
