Hi I'm Mark

I grew up in southern California, moved around the country, and now live in Grand Rapids Michigan.

About Me

I work at a hardware company in Grand Rapids and specialize in marketing. I'm a married father of four. I enjoy following my sports teams (Lakers, Angels, BYU Football), learning new technology, playing music in a make-shift basement band, and exploring photography.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with a good family that taught me about Jesus and the gospel at a young age. That faith blossomed in me over the years and became stronger as an adult. I continue in this faith because of confirmation I get from the Holy Spirit that it's true.

How I live my faith

I'm the bishop of a congregation in Grand Rapids. I get to spend lots of time with all ages and types of people in the church, ranging from those who have just joined, old veterans, members who are struggling with their, and members who are just getting back into it. It's easy to see how every body is at a different place in their own spiritual journey, and I can relate to that since I've been there before.
