Hi I'm Marcus Begay

I grew up in Arizona on the Navajo reservation. I love to play basketball. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've been a member all my life. I am Native American, apart of the Navajo Indian Tribe and live on the reservation. I love my family and all they do for me, I'm the youngest of 4 kids. I am currently serving a mission too and I am glad to be called to serve in Brazil. I like to play basketball and run. I played Basketball in high school. I also ran Track and Cross Country in high school too. Basketball is where it's at for me but, I enjoy playing other sports as well. I like traveling too as well as meeting new people and seeing new places.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because of the feelings, blessings, and knowledge I have gain from the gospel. My family is strong and full of love. Our home is built on gospel principles that I always keep in mind. I love how it makes me feel so much happiness and how that joy can spread to those around me. Also knowing Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and having the Holy Ghost gives me comfort and I know what is in store for me in the future. When I live the commandments and keep my covenants that I made with Heavenly Father, I know I will gain a great gift that is above all other gifts. I am grateful for all that I have been given, the people I've met that strengthened my faith, and the support I have from Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I am surrounded by love and happiness everyday, which as a result makes me a better person and enables me to build charity towards everyone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving my family and appreciating that I have them to teach me and guide me. I also try in everyway to love those around me, I'm not perfect but having the gospel in my life has taught me that there are ways of improvement. I attend church every Sunday and I always remember the teachings I learn which help me through the obstacles of life. Also I pray and read my scriptures everyday so that I may have the spirit with me so that it can guide me everyday. I also give thanks for all that I have been given and try to give to others, in the best way I can. Another way I live my faith is by serving a full time mission which enables me to help others feel the joy and love I have received from my faith.
