Hi I'm Mark Christensen

Enjoyed the cold Alaskan snow growing up. Ran a half-marathon on 14 February 2009. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Graduated with an engineering degree in the civil disciplines. Read avidly, especially in the science fiction and fantasy genres, every once in a while I venture into the other realms, but not for very long.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in the church culture, I recognized for myself during my youth the fact of the existence of God and the necessity of the Atonement of Jesus Christ during a particularly difficult period when I questioned the purpose of life and frail nature of mortality. With a relatively calm life, I have been graciously blessed with struggles and trials through which I have grown closer to my Savior, and the salvation He has offered me. Many years are ahead of me and I continue forward, eager for the happiness and aware of the challenges which will appear, but I look to the future knowing that faith is essential and an optimistic attitude will guide me well.

How I live my faith

I help as a Webelos Scout den leader with a small group of kids every week. Also instruct in a small classroom setting once a month during Sunday meetings.
