Hi I'm Mark Bailey

I'm a Mormon, I grew up in Utah, served my mission in the South Africa Johannesburg mission, got married in the Logan Utah temple

About Me

I grew up in the church and I am thankful for my membership. I know that this is the only true and living church on the earth today. I served my mission in Johannesburg South Africa. I enjoyed my time serving the Lord as a missionary and the people of South Africa. Shortly after returning home I was sealed to my wife for all time and eternity in the Logan Utah Temple. We have three energetic boys that can make a mess as fast as we can clean it up. After graduating from college I started my career working for the church as a facilities manager. As a family we enjoy doing outdoor activities such as camping, (minor) hiking, and visiting new places. We enjoy spending time with friends and family. We are greatful for the truth that is present in our live. We know that all the blessings we receive are because of our loving Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, so I have been a member my entire life. Even though I was raised in the church I still had to know for myself whether or not the teachings were true. After sincerely praying to my Father in Heaven, to know whether this church and it's teaching were true, it was confirmed to me that this church is the only true church on the earth today. The true gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth through his servents, the prophets. Joseph Smith really did see God, the Father, and Jesus Christ. He spoke with them face to face and with the authority and power from God he translated the Book of Mormon, and restored the true church of God, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I know that there is no other way back to God, except through Jesus Christ. He suffered for my sins and then died for me and all mankind, so that I could live with Him again. I know that no man can act in the name of Jesus Christ without the proper authority, and that authority being the Priesthood authority, which has been restored on earth today through His prophet Joseph Smith. I know that this Church is the only Church that is guided and directed 100% by God and Jesus Christ through living prophets that hold and are worthy of the Priesthood. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church on earth.

How I live my faith

Each day I strive to live my faith to the fullest. I pray for Heavenly Fathers guidence each day. Each night we kneel as a family to thank Him for all He blesses us with. I attend my church meetings and strive to fullfill my church callings. Sharing the gospel in anyway I can helps me live my faith. Teaching it to my family and studying together helps strengthen my testimony and knowledge of this gospel.
