Hi I'm Mavrik

I live in Las Vegas and believe it or not, I"m a Mormon.

About Me

Originally from Ohio, I moved to Las Vegas when I was little. I graduated from high school in 2012. I have my pilot's license and I am currently working as a landscaper to save money for my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a large Mormon family. Since I was little I was taught about the gospel of Jesus Christ. As I have grown older I have found great comfort in the teachings of the gospel. There were times in my life where I found myself slightly confused and a little unsure about how I should take the course of my life. In these times I found myself again and again praying on my knees, asking what I should do, and again and again I felt the Holy Ghost giving me direction in foggy world. Being a Mormon and greatly blessed my life. The things that I have learned as a Mormon have given me comfort and direction in my life.

How I live my faith

I find that some of the best ways to live my faith are by doing the simple things. These things include reading the scriptures, saying my prayers, and doing my best to try to follow Jesus. For the last few months I the wonderful opportunity to teach the 7 year-old children in primary about ways that we follow Christ and return to our Heavenly Father. I know it is by doing these "little things" that I am able to draw closer to my Heavenly Father.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Perhaps one of the best ways to come to know our Heavenly Father is to simply talk with Him. Talk with Him often in prayer. Let Him know what is going on in your life. Share with Him your dreams, goals, concerns, and fears. Ask for His advice when you are having a difficult time with a decision or when you simply need help. Show more Show less
