Hi I'm Mark

I have 5 older sisters. I surf. I love to goof off and make jokes. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in southern California. I like to surf, play guitar, and joke around with my friends. I have big family which I love. I'm teaching myself Spanish and I'm currently going to school for a bachelor's degree in history. I've done a lot of work in construction but I hope to become a teacher or a professor. I will be an influence for good in my community.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon and always thought it was good but I didn't always want to live it until I knew it was true. When I actually read the Book of Mormon by my own desire God started to show me how to live my life more. I stopped feeling so tempted to have self destructive habits and I started feeling good about doing the right things. I feel God's Spirit in my life and I never feel alone. I know I have a purpose in helping others but that is only a blessing I can have if I become more like God, like my Father in Heaven. I'm grateful for Him sending His son, Jesus Christ who is my redeemer. Jesus showed me a better way to live and made it possible for me to be forgiven of my past sadness and sins. I learn about Jesus from the Bible, Book of Mormon, and church. I'm happy to be a Mormon. :)

How I live my faith

My church has a ward just for Young Single Adults(YSA) that I attend. It's great to be with people my age who share my same values and do a bunch of fun stuff together. I teach a scripture study class there every week on Thursday before we play volleyball. I love teaching and I try to make the lesson's interesting, relevant, and I love learning from those who attend my class. I try to take every opportunity to serve it helps me to feel grateful and needed. This world needs heroes and I want to learn to be one them.
