Hi I'm Mark

I grew up in Utah. I teach high school and coach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, father, Spanish teacher and coach. I married my high school sweetheart and we have 2 wonderful children. As a family, we love the outdoors including hiking, skiing, fishing and camping. We also love sports. I also love to golf and watch pro baseball games (Let's go METS!). I coach high school baseball and golf and love having a positive influence on my students and players.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church. I always tried to do what my parents asked and also tried to live Gospel principles. However, it wasn't until my high school days that I completely read the Book of Mormon and asked God if it was true. The peace and overall good feelings that came to me were amazing. I could not deny that the things I was being taught and that the things I was reading are true. It has had a profound affect on my life. I know that when I am living right and obeying God's commandments I feel good and at peace.

How I live my faith

In the church, I currently serve the 18-45 year old men and their families. I teach lessons occasionally on Sunday and also visit 3 families once a month to make sure that they are doing ok. I try to serve them with whatever they need and also serve on the unofficial "moving crew" when people in our ward need help.
