Hi I'm Marvin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, dad, mr. fixer, and surfer. I love photography and having fun with my 2 boys. I work with people in addiction and help them overcome their problems. I play guitar and love Elvis.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to mormonism. I didn't know much about mormons when I started taking lessons from the missionaries. They asked me to read some of The Book of Mormon after we met. I went home and laid in bed and started reading about Joseph Smith. After a while I came to the part where Joseph found the plates on September 22. I started to yawn and I took a look at my watch. It read 11 PM, September 22. When I realized I was reading about the plates that were found on September 22 and I was reading about it on the same day I immediately had an overwhelming feeling come over me I knew that it was the Holy Ghost telling me that what I was reading was correct. I then knew that The Book of Mormon was true. I joined the church because I wanted to be happy. I saw all the members going to church on Sunday and they looked sincerely happy. I wanted what they had so I joined the church. I can now say that I am happy most of the time. Of course, there are times that prove to be difficult, at those times, I rely on my relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I pray often and help others as much as I can. I love serving in the Church and being able to help others.

How I live my faith

I am an active home teacher, ward missionary, and friend. I like to try and be the person my dog thinks I am.
