Hi I'm Mark

I am a business major and a drummer. I am serving a mission in Milwaukee Wisconsin, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

First and foremost I love my family! They are everything to me! The people in my life are the most important thing to me and really describe who I am. I am currently a missionary in Wisconsin! I just graduated with an associates degree from Utah State University Eastern. I love music! I play the piano, guitar, trombone, ukulele, and drums. Before I left on my mission I was a drummer for the band "Vest". I am a business major. My parents own a music store which I have worked in all my life. I love meeting people from different backgrounds (you get ALOT of that in music stores ha!) I love all types of music. Okay...most types of music ha! I love the scriptures! I used to be an ambassador for the University, so I would do recruiting, which was way fun! I also love to work on vehicles and build things. I completely restored an 85 Jeep CJ7. I love to travel. I love to laugh! I rode my bicycle with my brother and Dad from Anchorage Alaska to Tijuana Mexico when I was 15. I just love to LIVE! I love to see the creations that God has given us!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know without a doubt that it is Christ's church. I have felt an undeniable witness of the holy ghost that this is the church that contains the fulness of the gospel. I grew up in a strong Christian family, that taught me about our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ since I was very young. That was great and all, but I didn't have a strong conviction that Jesus Christ was our Savior until I had started going to college and had to ask myself what I really believed. After a chain of events I was led to finally get on my knees and just simply ask God if what I had learned all my life was from Him. Almost immediately I was overcome by an incredible warmth where I felt peace and my Heavenly Fathers love, and I knew it was all true! Because That's true I know that through the Atonement of Christ we can and will be fully forgiven of our sins. I know that through this gospel families can be together forever. I know what it is like to not to live the gospel, and I cannot express how much living it to the best of my ability has blessed me. I know that this gospel is true and I want others to be able to have what I have and feel what I have felt, so I am serving a mission to share this gospel. Very simply, I'm a Mormon because here I find TRUE happiness!

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith by being a full-time representative of Jesus Christ. Being a missionary has been an incredible blessing to me and has really helped me to understand how I can be a better disciple of Jesus Christ. I can honestly say this has been the happiest time of my life, and I know much better now than I did in the past that happiness comes from serving others. As a missionary we have the privilege of serving people spiritually and physically. We get to teach people about Jesus Christ and serve them in any way we can 24/7!

Are Mormons Christians?

Mark
In every sense of the word we are Christians. Jesus Christ is my Savior! He is also the Savior of the world. I believe in Jesus Christ with my whole heart. Sometimes people have misconceptions that we are not Christians which actually amazes me considering the fact that it is "The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints". But I think the confusion sometimes comes from our Nickname "Mormons". I want to bear my solemn witness that I know that Jesus Christ lives and is our savior and he loves all of us. As members of the church we try to follow our saviors perfect example and try and live the way he did. Show more Show less
