Hi I'm Mark

I grew up in Canada but now live in Atlanta, Georgia. I love college football, U2, traveling, and trivia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Alberta, Canada but am currently living in Atlanta , Georgia where I work in management for a large corporation. I married one of my best friend's sister and we have four beautiful children (they clearly take after their mom). We moved to Atlanta from Virginia where I attended graduate school and although we are far from home, we love the southern hospitality (and the fact that I can golf almost year round). When my knees allow it, I love playing sports although I've been reduced to mostly a spectator. I've seen much of the world through both personal and business travel and enjoy learning about other cultures. My greatest love is my family and the highlight of my week is always our family Friday night party, a tradition we started a few years ago.

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon faith helps me live a sturdy and rewarding life. It helps me keep life in perspective during good times and bad by providing me the answers to life's most difficult questions. I have prayed to know if this church is true and have come to know for myself that it is! I believe in the Book of Mormon and the blessing of modern day prophets and am grateful for that knowledge. Mormonism has given my life direction and meaning.

How I live my faith

I currently teach a gospel-themed lesson every Sunday to all the 12-13 year old young men in our congregation and serve as their assistant Scoutmaster. As part of the BSA program, we have an activity every Wednesday night aimed at fulfilling various merit badges and also engage in service, camping, etc several weekends a year. In our home, my wife and I strive to teach our children to live a Christ-like life. We pray and study the scriptures together daily and spend one evening a week (Monday) teaching each other about a gospel topic.
