Hi I'm Marc

I grew up in Kansas, I love working on computers and have successfully completed several IT projects. I am a Mormon

About Me

I love computers, whether it be working on them or using them, they are my favorite way to spend time. I recently graduated from High school and will soon be serving a full time mission for the LDS church. Throughout my years in high school I participated in many events that involved robotic engineering, video editing, and graphic design. I love to read, specifically my favorite author, Orson Scott Card. I also enjoy watching movies such as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. Some of my favorite music actually comes from movie soundtracks, like those written by Hans Zimmer. Other musical artists I enjoy are Coldplay and Appoaching Nirvana. I love spending time with my family playing board games and taking walks or going on roadtrips and camping.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the teachings are true. I was born into the church, so I never experienced a conversion through the missionaries, but as I have grown in the church and as I have learned about the teachings of other religions, I came to realize that the only true and comforting doctrine is Christ's doctrine. His plan is one of happiness for all, not just for some. Our Heavenly Father truly loves all of us, and He allows trials to come our way to teach us. If He shielded us from every hardship, we would never learn anything. I know that this is why we are here on Earth, to learn, to develop friendships, and to love each other. Christ's doctrine gives me such hope for the future and allows me to remain calm in the present. I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I attend the temple as often as I can and I attend our church meetings every week. I visit three families in our area with my father as hometeachers to help them and serve them however we can. I recently attended a church meeting at a nursing home so that the elderly could participate in taking the sacrament. I sometimes participate in our church meetings by preparing and delivering talks as well as lessons. Throughout high school I attended a program called seminary, which is a class that teaches high school students about the scriptures and helps them understand them. After I serve my 2 year mission, I will attend Institute, which is a college level seminary program.
