Hi I'm Mark Fullmer

I'm married to a wonderful wife and have two kids. I'm a software engineer and love to work with my hands. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah, Nebraska, Idaho, and California. I met my beautiful wife while working at Burger King when I was attending Brigham Young University. We have two children who are both starting their own college careers. I have worked as a software and CAD engineer in the electornics industry since college and have most recently moved to California to work for Apple. I enjoy working on yard and home projects with my wife as we have designed and built two homes and numerous other projects. I also enjoy sports, most notably college football.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Utah and lived there until I was about 11 years old when my parents moved our family to Nebraska. I went from a predominantly Mormon community to one where I was the only Mormon in my school. This caused me to decide for myself if Mormonism was something I believed in or not. I found that by living by the teachings and principles taught in the Mormon church brought more happiness into my life than any other religion. I watched friends live for the moment, doing things that were "fun" at the time, but often led to dissappointment and guilt afterward. I didn't want to live that way. One of my favorite principles taught in the Mormon church is that families can be together forever. I married my wife on September 3rd, 1988 in the Jordan River Temple in South Jordan, Utah. We were sealed there to be husband and wife forever - not until death do you part. She is mine and I am hers for eternity. Our children are also ours for eternity. One of the most painful things in this life is the death of a family member, but knowing that we will be together again and that our relationship will continue beyond the grave can bring comfort and peace during a very difficult time. I truly owe all that I am to my Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My faith defines me. I could not be who I am today without my Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ's help. Thoughout my life, I have found myself in situations where I am inadequate to whatever task I'm assigned, but through their help, I'm able to accomplish it. I graduated college with training and hopes to work in the airplane design industry, but as there were no jobs due to a recession, I was instead offered a job designing computer chips. I was highered for my software skills, but I had little electronic training. I was lost. I found that as I would pray for help, I would always be given the answer - sometimes during that very the prayer. Originally, I only intended to stay with this job until one in which I had more training came available. That was over twenty years ago. Now, I'm working for one of the leaders in electronics and innovation. I have applied this practice to all aspects of my life. I have found answers to how to raise my children, how to be a better husband, how to fix a bug in a program, and many other aspects of my life. If I didn't have my faith, it would be like living in a world without light and I'd be left on my own. It gives me hope and peace that no other source can provide.
