Hi I'm Marc Summers

I grew up in West Jordan Utah. I love the gospel. I am currently serving a mission in the Anaheim California Mission

About Me

I am a lover of all sports, although my favorite is soccer. I attended 3 semesters of college before my mission. I was a runner in High School and ran the Ragnar-Wasatch Back in 2011. Family is where it's at, they are everything to me. I truly do know that my Savior lives.

Why I am a Mormon

At the age of eight I was baptized. I had always been taught that that was the correct thing to do. I never really doubted it. For years I had gone to church, learned about the scriptures and did what was expected of me. I believe that we cannot come to know these things are true unless we honestly and sincerely act. Through our obedience we can feel and come to know the presence of our Father and his Holy Spirit in our lives. Through my trials and weaknesses I have come to know that my Savior lives and that he loves me. The more I study the plan that God has set in motion the more that I am truly baffeled. I have come to realize through my experiences that I am nothing and that I cannot do anything on my own. I guess you could say this is why I'm a Mormon. I have realized the need for me to be more than I could ever be on my own and it is only through the teachings and ordinances that God has shown in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The righteous ways the Lord has set up are the only possible way that we can attain our eternal potential and be reunited with Our Father forever. Besides the eternal role the gospel has to me, I have also partaken of the temporal feelings of peace, love, hope,and joy that can only come as we do what is right and follow the footsteps of him who conquered all.

How I live my faith

I am currently striving to live my faith every day as a missionary and messenger of the Lord. I love to invite others to come unto the Savior and be perfected in him. I believe that we cannot truly understand the gospel or come to know that it is true unless we do the three simple things that as missionaries we always invite others to do: read, pray, and go to church. I have tried to do these things all my life but it wasn't until I truly took the Lords command to go to all his children and share the gospel that I truly have been living my faith.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Marc Summers
The Book of Mormon to me is the foundation of my testimony. It contains the answers to all of the important questions that anyone could ever have. I know that it is true along with the other accepted scriptures of my church but the Book of Mormon has an even more personal relevance to me. In it we find the stories of many people who lived on the American continent long before it was discovered by Christopher Colombus. Their personal stories and testimonies have played an important role in my conversion. I once heard that a wise man learns from his own mistakes but a really wise person learns from the mistakes of others. The Book of Mormon contains the exact results of their actions whether they were good or bad. We Show more Show less
