Hi I'm Marcus

I am from the great state of Idaho. I love to play sports, and have fun. I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Yo what it is! I grew up in Idaho my entire life, and I love it! Best place ever! A little bit about me is I love sports. Basketball, Football, Track, wakeboarding, snowboarding, and others. Sports are just great. I also love music. I grew up playing the piano, and I also played the trumpet. Not very good at them anymore, but that is what I get for not practicing them for 5 or more years now. I also love listening to music. I will listen to most things, even a little country, but rock is where i live! Right now i am a missionary in the Iowa Des Moines Mission. Best Mission ever! Not kidding. I have had such a great time over the past 23 months serving the Lord, and will be sad when it is over in a month. After this I am going back to Idaho to work, and then go back to school at BYUI! I love to live life and have fun, because it is who I is. haha!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members, and brought me up in the church. They taught me the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and took me to church. I was always happier when I followed the principles and ordinances of the Gospel and I like to be happy, so I continued to follow them. When I was a freshman in high school I read the Book of Mormon for the first time by myself, I had always read it with my family, but I wanted to do it on my own. As I read though the Book of Mormon I started to understand more on a personal level what the Gospel of Jesus Christ was, and why it made me happy. I would pray to God every time before I read it, and asked that I would understand it. After I did this my testimony in the Book of Mormon was strengthened, and I have always wanted to be a part of this church after that. I know that if you would sincerely put your heart into it, and read and pray, that God will bless you with the knowledge and testimony that the Book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith by doing whatever I can to bring the happiness and joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the lives of other people. I go door to door, teach people, and things like that. Teaching people is a lot more enjoyable than going door to door. I also live the commandments that God has given us, and also our mission rules. I do that because they all bring blessings, no matter how dumb the commandment or rule. They are there for our protection, and so that God can Bless us!
