Hi I'm Marco Brown

I grew up in Dyersburg, TN and now living in Rexburg, ID while arrending Brigham Young University - Idaho. Navy vet and Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student perusing my degree in early child development with a dream to become a pediatrician. I love nature (love Cali), sports (soccer is my favorite), and love volunteering in my area.

Why I am a Mormon

One day I was walking to my car to go get a haircut when I was approached by three sister missionaries. They saw that I was in a rush to leave so they quickly asked me if I knew anyone who may need any assistance around the house or something small and a name of a friend came to mind so I told them yes. I politely asked for their number so that I may give them a call when I got back home. When I got home I felt like someone was telling me to call the sisters over so I did. We started talking and before I knew it, I became an investigator of the Church. It's amazing how God works. My intentions were to have them talk to my friend, who was currently going through it all but instead I became the convert. God knew I was one of the lost sheep who was ready to come home and they found me. I'm glad that I met the sister missionaries. I started reading the Book of Mormon, pondered the teachings and prayed to God, as it says to do in scripture and that's how I came to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church that has been restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

As a convert, I live my faith by praying for better and more understanding as I continue to read the Book of Mormon. I also send out invitations to family members and friends to either talk to missionaries or come join me at the Church for some insight. Temple attendance is really important to me so I try to go at least once or twice a week.
