Hi I'm Mark

I love biking, BMW motorcycles, traveling, and spending family time. I am currently a Mission President, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to the girl of my dreams, have five children, four boys, one girl and a beautiful daughter in law. I was raised in northern Utah in the small rural community. For 25 years I have lived at the base of the most beautiful mountains in the world in Provo Utah. My children have served Church missions in Paris France, Fortaleza Brazil, Madagascar and Scotland/Ireland. My daughter is a competitive tennis player. I now live in Tampa Florida where I serve as President of the Florida Tampa Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I cannot imagine a life of raising children without the support and understanding the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is no greater blessing of peace and happiness than to know of God’s plan for families. My family has been richly blessed by the knowledge that Jesus Christ is our Savior that we have living prophets and apostles living on the earth today who lead and guide us. I know that through the Atonement of Christ I can be forgiven of my sins and return to live with my Father in Heaven. I know that by making and keeping covenants we can bring happiness and peace into our lives. I have learned these things for myself through the gift of the Sprit as I read, study and ponder the doctrines of Christ found in The Bible and The Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I currently live my faith by serving others full time in the Florida Tampa Mission and by teaching my family about Jesus Christ and his restored gospel. I also love to spend time teaching the youth. I have seen the great blessings that come from living this gospel and serving in the Mormon Church. I am currently seeing the Lord's hand in miracles on a daily basis. My membership in Christ’s Church is of critical importance to me. I invite you to see for yourself how The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints can bless your life.
