Hi I'm Mark

i'm currently serving a mission in Taiwan and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California but was only there a few months before my family moved to Utah. I lived there until fourth grade and then my family moved to Minnesota. As long as I can remember I've always loved reading, a few of my favorite books would include Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings but I enjoy reading almost anything. I also love getting outside and being active. I like to go camping, canoeing, going on hikes and just enjoying nature. I also love music. I enjoy listening to it or playing it and I'm not to picky, i enjoy nearly every kind of music. Throughout high school I ran on the cross country and track team and was also part of the cross country ski team. I graduated high school in 2014 and started school at BYU in Utah. In a few weeks I will be leaving to Taiwan for a few years, I'm going to be on a mission for my church for the next two years.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both members of the church when I was born. For quite a while I just went to church because that is what my parents wanted me to do. I felt like all of the rules I had to follow were a little to much at times. I was never opposed to it but sometimes I wold get a little irritated, I though it would be easier if I didn't have so many rules. As I continued to live by these rules though I realized that they were not put into place to annoy or irritate me they were put into place to help. Today I am now more health and happy than I would eave been if I had not lived by these rules.

How I live my faith

My faith has always been a large part of my life. Every Sunday I go to church for three hours, sometimes even more. All through high school I would wake up early so I could go to seminary before school started where we would study the scriptures for an hour every day.Even when I wasn't physically at church or seminary my religion still plays a large roll in my life. The principals and lessons I have learned from attending church have strongly influenced my life. When faced with hard choices I have always been able to think about the things I have learned and then do my best to make the right choice.
