Hi I'm Mark Coons

I am a Dentist who has gone on multiple humanitarian dental trips to help the children of Central America.

About Me

I am a father of two wonderful children and most of my time is spent with them. I really enjoy going on walks with my wife. I love football, so the fall is my favorite time of the year. I work as a dentist and the majority of the patients I see are children and I think it is a great opportunity to serve my community.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe like it says in James chapter one that if we lack wisdom we can ask God any question and he will answer us, if we ask in faith. I believe I can ask God what is true and correct and he will answer me. I believe that he has answered my prayers as I have asked if the church is true. As I have read the scriptures (Bible and Book of Mormon) I have learned principles that bless my life and the life of my family. I have received answers to my prayers and the Holy Ghost has taught me that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God, and that the church he restored is the true church of Christ on the earth. I know that today the church is still led by a prophet receiving direction from Jesus Christ himself.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of the church and learning more about the savior every day and trying to become more like him. As I study the scriptures and prepare lessons to teach to classes I am assigned on Sunday I truly grow spiritually. I have a weekly meeting every Monday night with my wife and kids called family night; where I teach my children to love Jesus and the principles of the gospel he taught.
