Hi I'm Marci Hugentobler

I'm a Mormon. I race motocross (dirtbikes). I am super athletic. I am strong and active in the church and I am BYU-Idaho Student.

About Me

I race motocross and run track and cross country and I am a hard worker and very active in church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon because of my parents and I am proud of it and I try to live the Commandments so I can be worthy and safe to enter heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my live my faith by believing in my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost and the powers of the Atonement. In The Continuous Atonement by Brad Wilcox it says, "Christ's (atonement) power is not an emergency generator that turns on once our supply is exhausted. It is not a booster engine once we run out of steam. Rather, it is our constant energy source" (Pg. 104). The Atonement and Christ's power is there for all of us to use and sometimes we don't recognize that we are using His power. I just want you to know we are not alone the Savior is always with us and helping us when times seem hard. Just remember our energy source that comes from Christ and that He will help us because He knows and has felt our pain. We are all sons and daughters of our Heavenly father and brothers and sisters of our loving savior, Jesus Christ.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Marci Hugentobler
The reason why Mormons baptize new members is because they are new to the church. They also need to be baptized by the correct authority, who is a member of the church and has the priesthood powers to do so. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Marci Hugentobler
I have been a member of the church my whole life. I was born and raised in the church and I was also baptized when I was eight. When I was young I did it because my parents are members. It was when I was older around the age thirteen that I started to search for myself. I became more in tuned with the church but my testimony was still off my parent's testimony. At the age sixteen I attended EFY. At first I wasn't comfortable with it but I went with an open mind and it changed my life. I studied the scriptures more deeply and I really listened to the teachings of the gospel and truly prayed and pondered it. So advice to know about the gospel is to truly study, pray, and ponder, and not only that but to have an open mind, let the spirit lead you to the right place. Show more Show less
