Hi I'm Markie

I love purple, cooking, swimming, and being out doors. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a girl who loves to stand out and be bold in my fashion. I love to be outdoors in the fall, summer and spring time and cuddled up in a blanket watching movies in the winter time. I love to try new things that are out of my norm. I love to stay busy and love the feeling of accomplishing something. I love my Family and I am so grateful to have the knowledge that families can be sealed together forever. On May 29th I will have the wonderful, exciting opportunity to serve a mission in Columbus, Ohio. I can't wait to get out and meet and teach the people as I already feel a love for them growing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by my parents who know this church to be true. I came to know for myself that this was the full, complete and true church restored by Joseph Smith when I read the Book Of Mormon and prayed to my Father in Heaven to know if these things were true. I feel my Heavenly Father and Saviors love for me each day and know that this is their work through many experiences in my life where I have pondered and asked to know for myself. Through the Holy Ghost I have come to know that this Church is True. I can't wait to share my Testimony to the people in Ohio so they can have the same joy and happiness I feel in my life, each day and to make covenants with Heavenly Father to return back to him.

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve an LDS mission in Columbus, Ohio. I am preparing each day to be more aware and fully apply the teachings of the gospel and the teachings of my Savior in my life. Of course no one is perfect, and I am grateful for my Savior who suffered for us so I can repent of my mistakes and continue on each day with more strength. I take time each day to study the teachings of ancient Prophets as well modern day Prophets and revelation. I love attending church meeting to renew my covenants I have made. I also love to hear the testimony's of members as I learn from their strength and spirit. Each Sabbath day I feel is a reminder and 'check-up' to try a little harder to be a little better. I try to attend the temple once a week to help continue the ordinances that needs to be done for ancestors that have passed on. I feel of my Heavenly Fathers love each time I walk on the Temple grounds and I know that this is Heavenly Fathers house. I know my Savior lives. I know that he is always there for me each day if I will do my part and let him in and keep the commandments and covenants I have made.
