Hi I'm Mark

I'm an engineer, a trekee, a music nut and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I design consumer electronics with a great team of people. The work is fun and we don't take ourselves too seriously. I am also a husband and father to a wonderful family that I love dearly. I enjoy traveling to new places, trying all kinds of strage foods and working on computers.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but after my parents divorced, I became bitter and stayed away from church for more than a decade. When i met my wife and we started our family, we both knew in our hearts that we knew the church was true and the God expected us to raise our family as strong, faithful members of the church. We have been so blessed with four amazing kids who all have testimonies and live the church standards, even thought they are very unpopular by the standards of the day.

How I live my faith

I am the Branch President of the Saint-Lazare branch of the Montreal Mount Royal Stake. The best part of my calling is working with the youth. Our youth are so amazing! They have strong vibrant testimonies and they are the best missionaries. My own testimony grows every time i teach or interact with them. I know happiness comes when we live according to the commandments of God.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is something you know for sure is true. In the gospel, we begin by taking things on faith and acting as though they are true even before we know them to be. By exercising our faith, we are able to receive a witness from the Holy Ghost and our own experience. This replaces our faith in whatever principle we are trying to gain a testimony of. By repeating this pattern throughout our lives we can come to know for sure that the church is true and that God's commandments really do lead to happiness, joy and peace in our lives.
