Hi I'm Jack Markman

I grew up in Utah. I am serving a mission in the state of Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a recent high school graduate. I love to read about science, mathematics, and philosophy. Some of my hobbies are juggling, ping-pong, and dating. I am passionate about music, whether it's classical, jazz, country, or rock. I am registered to attend a state university when I return from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has all been LDS, but that's not the reason that I am a member of this church. I am a member of this church because I sincerely believe what it teaches. I believe that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet, I believe in the Restoration, and I believe and love Christ as my Savior. I want to share that with others in any way that I can.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in my local high school seminary council. I have been a ward missionary, and have used those opportunities to create relationships and show sincere love. I am scheduled to leave on an LDS mission in Texas, and I look forward to the opportunities I will have to teach the people there about the restored gospel.
