Hi I'm Mark

I'm a Sales & Leadership Coach into fitness & sports. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a fitness nut, actively engaged in aerobic sports - I love touch rugby, basketball, cross-fit, tennis, motor sports, and skiing. My 6 children are also very much into competitive sports - this sure makes me happy. I grew up in Hamilton, NZ and worked in Auckland for 18 years selling luxury and performance vehicles, before moving to the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

Why I am a Mormon

I live actively as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as a Mormon, because of the sweet feelings of peace and knowledge that I am a child of our Father in Heaven. I believe Jesus as the Son of God was born exceptionally and lived a sinless life in order to satisfy our Father in Heaven that a perfect one could atone for those who wanted to return to Heaven after this mortal life. My life has had several challenges with the ugliness of this world which Satan feeds with shallow distractions, yet the elevating experiences I have been blessed to receive and recognise comfort me in my pursuit of knowledge as I live to serve those I meet.

How I live my faith

I have gladly served others for over 30 years - whether as a member of School and Industry Associations; as a sports Coach or teacher (especially with youth); or as a stranger who sees people in need (of comfort, of counsel, of a helping hand, of food clothes or shelter). Wonderful parents and teachers have taught me to understand that Jesus Christ lived a mortal life to demonstrate how to serve others, and I show my love for Him through doing the same where I see I can.
