Hi I'm Mark

I was born in California, raised in Idaho. I love anything outdoors and playing soccer! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California but consider myself an Idahoan. I love everything about this state, I enjoy the outdoors and especially love backpacking, dirtbiking and hunting. I also love all sorts of Motorsport and if I had the money or an opportunity too, it would be a dream to race in the Baja 500. I just finished with my first year at BYU Provo preparing to apply to their Mechanical Engineering program and absolutely love that school. And in my down time between school and my mission I work repairing rental houses and do the occasional ranch work.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the best way to live. I honestly don't know where I would be without the church in my life! It has given me the knowledge to know that I will return to live with my Heavenly Father and my family again. I no know that the Lord influences us in every aspect of our life. The Book of Mormon gives so much insight into daily problems that I can refer to it daily. It is simply the happiest way to live!

How I live my faith

I almost have 2 "home" wards I deeply care about. One is my singles ward down in Provo, the other is a family ward that I grew up in here in Star, Idaho. I have held a number of callings, the list includes, Teachers quorum(14-16 year old male youth group) president, Priests(14-16 year old youth group) 1st assistant, assistant scoutmaster, and Service committee chairperson. Each of these callings has had a varying amount of responsibility but I've always tried to make the most out of each of my assignments, I've planned youth outings, service activities and pack meetings and supervised them being carried out. I am greatful for the opportunities that the church has given me to practice leadership
