Hi I'm Marshall Buckhoff

I'm from Georgia. I love College Football. I actually know more than ESPN analysts. I was once attacked by an owl. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

love watching and playing just about every sport. I'm especially a huge College Football fan. Despite living in Georgia I'm a big Florida Gator fan. I'm a big movie watcher and I love quoting comedies. I am very proud to have grown up in the South but I like traveling around and seeing new places (I'll always miss humidity when I'm in dry areas though). Before my mission I took classes at Georgia Southern and Utah Valley. I'm planning to further my education and strive to become a Nurse Anesthetist. I have 5 siblings that I'm close with. Family is very important in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have earnestly sought answers to all of my doubts; I have felt God answer my prayers through blessings, that I've received when I am following His commandments. I've learned that when I've gone astray from God's teachings, my life would get worse. When I decided to try following His teachings and this gospel again, my life gained so much happiness. It's difficult to explain, but I've experienced a lot in my life so far, and I now know that this is the best church to be able to use Jesus Christ's Atonement and make it back to our Heavenly Father. This gospel has given my life so much more purpose. I also love the fact that through our Heavenly Father's Plan of Salvation, I will be able to live with my family (and future wife and kids) for Eternity!

How I live my faith

I've always been open to talking about my beliefs with everyone. I'm currently serving an LDS-mission in the England Leeds, Slovak-Speaking Mission. I am serving a mission so that I can bring others the same happiness that I feel when I closely follow Christ's teachings in His gospel today. I am also extremely happy to be able to be with my family for eternity. And I want to help give others this same opportunity!
