Hi I'm Marc

I grew up in San Diego California and now live in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am preparing to serve a mission to Arizona. I live with my mother and two brothers and I have a sister that lives with her husband and family. I can always find a way to draw nearer to God through scripture study and personal prayer. I am also employed with two jobs to save up outside of high school. With any spare time I find I like to play basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I believe in its teachings and being a member truly does bring me happiness. I was not always active. I was traveling down some rough paths and I could tell that my life was not heading in the direction I wanted. I quickly realized that worldly pleasures lead to temporary happiness and, in an eternal perspective, had no lasting value. Through fervent prayer and study of this gospel I found the way to happiness and eternal life. I was amazed that Jesus Christ would suffer and die for each one of us. I have felt for myself the power of forgiveness of my sins through the atonement that Jesus provided. I have only grown closer to my Father in Heaven as days have passed, and I have never been happier in my life. I cannot wait to serve the Lord on an honorable full-time mission, and for the rest of my life as a worthy husband and father.

How I live my faith

I am an Eagle Scout and I love to attend church meetings. Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I enjoy feeling close to my Heavenly Father as I stand in holy places. Throughout the week I converse with thousands of people with two jobs and high school attendance. Chances constantly present themselves and I try to share the Gospel with any who do not know the truth which I know. I also strive to show my faith to others through my actions. I try to keep in my mind that God is watching me along with his children that see me each day.
