Hi I'm Mark
I grew up in and live in South Carolina. I joined the church in 2009. I'm a Mormon.
I'm a convert to the church. As a father of 1 and a step father to 6, I LOVE family and family life. I enjoy spending time with my wife and our great kids. I am very much involved in physical fitness.
Why I am a Mormon
I was introduced to the church through a member friend in late 2008. After being invited to read the Book of Mormon and later visiting the church, I asked to be taught more. It was apparent to me early in the process that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was a perfect fit for me and my life. A choice that I am so glad that I made. Each time I read from the pages of The Book of Mormon, I could feel the Spirit so strongly. Every question answered by the missionaries brought about clearer understanding of deep gospel truths. I learned for myself why the gospel of Jesus Christ needed to be restored again to the earth. Through personal prayer and study, I gained a testimony of this great work. I share this testimony with you, that Jesus Christ is the true and "living" savior, His gospel has again been restored to the earth in its fullnes, that we have once again living prophets and apostles and that The Book of Mormon is indeed another testament of Jesus Christ.
How I live my faith
I love the church. It plays a roll in every part of my life. As part of a very involved church family, we all surround ourselves in church service. I work with the elders in the local church by helping teach lessons in our group and also lend support to the childrens organization by working with my wife. I also enjoy visiting the members that I home teach.
