Hi I'm Marcos Colin-Swanke (Couch)

Im from Californa, currently on a mission and im super outgoing and fun

About Me

I`m 20 years old and i`m serving a mission and i love my family very much. I tend to play video games with my younger siblings. I also like to be in the cold weather as well as, rain, snow, wind, chilly days, etc. I just love the cold weather and I'd rather be in that than hot weather. But i also enjoy listening to music and I tend to dance to it as well, but not like ballroom, (which id love to learn) but I tend to do a less known style of dance, called jumpstyle, I did that for a while but i got hurt once and haven`t really danced much since then. But I plan on going to school for dance, so that I can be able to become a dance instructor. I also love to take pictures and baking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought into the church at the age of 5. And I cant find any better church to belong to. And I love how its been able to help through even the hardest of times. Again I love how the church is so family focused, and try to protects the family. I love how the Book of Mormon helps simplify the Bible and is meant to be read along with it, that alone has helped me understand what our Heavenly Father has for us and wants us to be. The teaching of the Church are wonderful and very structured to allow us to live happier, healthier lives.

How I live my faith

I`m currently serving a mission, and I gladly accepted it. I read the scriptures with my family as much as possible, and I share the gospel with my friends as well. And I strive to live by the standards of the church everyday! I personally read the scriptures everyday in the morning and when ever I get a chance to, I also love listening to the talks that the Prophet, and Apostles have to offer. By serving my mission I can see that my faith has increased a lot more. Another way I live my faith is through my family, for if it wasn't for my family I wouldn`t have nothing in this life, so I try to show them that I love them in any way possible.
