Hi I'm Stuart Markham

About Me

As of right now I am serving a full time mission in Arcadia California for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I will be retuning in October of 2013. I am just loving life. Before divesting all of my time to being a missionary I was attending BYU Hawaii and was in persuit of a Pre-professional Biology degree. I love to play Lacrosse. Minus the church lacrosse is one of the things I love the most! I have played for most of my life and cant get enouph of it! I also like to play tennis when I get the chance. I need to have a sport I can play well into my 90's(Thank you word of wisdom!) I enjoy the small thing in life. Music, ping pong, friends. Im a simple guy that just likes to have a lot of fun. I will be coming home soon.... so watch out!

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon girls are gorgeous! Amen. I have had the great opprotunity to have beenn raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My conversion comes day by day, as it does for many. Its called change. It is our great opprotunity to learn and grow here on this Earth, to prepare to meed God. Thank goodness we have help here! We have parents, siblings, scriptures, prophets, and the ever important connection with heaven, prayer. I choose to be a member of this church because I have found the only chuch that holds the proper authority from God on this Earth today. I have seen the very real powers "distill upon souls as the dews from heaven." I have seen the authority and power that this church posesses through miracles wrought to pass through my hands and the hands of others. I have made my fair share of mistakes in this life already, but i also know that i can overcome those mistakes. I know this because i know that someone a lot better and a lot more pure than me has laid down his life so that i can return to my Father in Heaven. I speak of our savior Jesus Christ. Jesus THE Christ. He is our older brother, our teacher, our master, and our savior. He came to this world to atone and to save us from our carnal natures. The only perfect person to come to this earth, gave his life freely at a young age, so that we have the opprotunity to repent, to be clean once agian. I know that through him we can all recieve all that God has. I know because i have felt the cleansing power of his atonement in my life when i have errored. I also know that we have to do our part. We need to show our efforts to repent, to be forgiven. We need to act and overcome day by day. The church is true. It has been restored through the life of an amazing man, Joseph Smith. He gave his life for the restoration of this gospel. So that we can have the truth today. Persucutions never stoped truth from moving forward, and we have it in our hands today. Use it!
