Hi I'm Mark

I'm a father of three boys and business owner. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of 3 boys (and a sweetheart black lab). I am the managing partner of an advertising agency.

Why I am a Mormon

It is the faith of my fathers that, through personal experiences and personal revelation, has become my own. Through years of Bible study and contemplation it initially just made sense that a restoration of truth and doctrine would benefits God's children, and help them to better live the way He would like them to. This logical conclusion has since become a personal, spiritual conviction.

How I live my faith

I believe that faith should be practiced daily. I strive to do this through daily prayer, daily scripture study, and regular service to my friends, neighbors and family. The church facilitates much of this through its activities, resources, opportunities for service and programs.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Mark
Yes! I know that this is a core part of God's plan for us. He has given us this life as an opportunity to form and refine these all important relationships. Show more Show less

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Mark
Homosexuality is a practice, like many other choices the World has to offer, that is not in concert with God's plan for us. The family unit is ordained of God, and was designed since the creation of our first parents (Adam and Eve) to consist of a mother, a father and children. This is further evidenced through the natural, procreative power that was given to us by God for the creation of physical bodies for his children. The unnatural or misuse of this power for anything other than the strengthening of the marriage relationship and creation of the family unit is a deviation from its God-given and intended purpose. Many people may be born with or have socialized tendencies toward this practice – much like many are prone to alcoholism, dishonesty or anger. Just because these tendencies feel natural or enticing does not make their practice right in the sight of God. Part of our purpose in life is to "put off the natural man" and learn to adapt our lives to the will of God. Show more Show less
