Hi I'm Marc

I believe in Jesus Christ

About Me

I am a Father of four children and Husband to their wonderful mother. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all of my life. My Heavenly Father has blessed me with the knowledge of His plan and the peace that comes with keeping the commandments. Most of my hobbies center around my family and horses. I enjoy taking my children on horse rides and experiencing God's creations. I enjoy spending time with my wife and children in all the normal family activities. My Career started as I graduated from Utah State University in Agri-Business. As an Agriculture Loan Officer I have enjoyed working with farmers and ranchers in Idaho. I have learned a great deal about Idaho Agriculture as I have worked with farmers that raise livestock and commodities such as: Potatoes, Wheat, Barley, Cattle, Sheep, Alfalfa Hay, Sugar Beets, Seed Potatoes, Milk, Dairy Products, Corn and several others. The commodities and products produced in Idaho help feed the people of the world. It is a great opportunity to play a small role in Idaho Agriculture.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel the Holy Spirit when I Testify of our Savior, serve God's Children, Study the words of our Savior and ancient prophets in the Scriptures and when I attend the Holy Temple. As a life long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I have developed a knowledge of who I am and what my responsibilities are as a I live on the earth. I am not a member of the church because it is tradition or because I want to belong to a great organization. I am a member because I know that the complete Gospel of Jesus Christ is taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have come to know my Savior and my Heavenly Father better each day as I try to apply the teachings of Jesus.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to serve my Heavenly Father by serving in the Church in what ever way He needs me to. For many years I have had the opportunity to work with young men in our community. Scouting is one way that I have been able to help young men experience the outdoors and other opportunities for growth. I have enjoyed working with the scouts and my sons as they have obtained the benefits the program has to offer. I have appreciated all of the effort that those who served the youth in our community and I have recognized the blessings our Heavenly Father has given the next generation. My life seems to be as crazy as most people these days, however, when I slow down and look for opportunities to serve my life is blessed.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

My life style centers around my family. Our day starts early with Family Scripture Study and Prayer. We take turns reading passages of scriptures for about 15 minutes. We invite the Holy Spirit into our lives so that we can receive direction for the day. Our hope is that as we center our lives around the teachings of Jesus Christ we will have more peace and inspiration to help us make the decisions that we are faced with. The rest of our day is like any other family such as School, Work and various activities. We each make mistakes and even get on each others nerves but we can still say we are best friends and love each other. We like to spend time with each other and encourage each other in our activities, school work and employment. Life is hard sometimes and we each need the strength that comes from our family members.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Being a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was a great blessing in my life. Members are not required to serve a mission for the church. Young Men that do not serve miss a great experience and significant blessings that come to one in a full time service of our Heavenly Fathers children. Show more Show less
