Hi I'm Mark Breinholt

I grew up in Arizona. I ran cross country, wrestled, and played lacrosse. I also enjoy playing the piano. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite thing to do is to go swimming with friends. I also really enjoy playing the piano and listening to music. I will be attending college after I serve a mission and hope to go to medical school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is God's church. I know there is a God because I know he hears and answers prayers. I know this is God's church for a few reasons. I know that as I have followed the teachings of this church, I have become closer to God and been blessed. I know that this church is God's church because it has "the priesthood" or God's authority. I know that this priesthood is real because I have seen do powerful things. I know that there is power in a priesthood blessing. Another reason I know this church is God's church is because I have read the Book of Mormon. I know that God's will is contained in that book, just like it is in the Bible.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday. I switch off playing the piano there with some other members. I also help administer priesthood ordinances, such as the sacrament. I help bless and pass the sacrament, or the bread and water symbolic of Christ´s sacrifice, to the congregation.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Mark Breinholt
There are many things that suggest there is a God. The first thing I can think of is God's creations. The way everything fits together in our bodies as well as every other creature God has created is simply miraculous. But the thing that most strongly suggests there is a God is the fact that he answers prayers. While he might not always answer our prayers immediately and in the way we expect, if we listen, we will always be answered. I know that my prayers have been answered. Show more Show less
