Hi I'm Mark Bott

I'm a comic book geek, a classical vocalist, a kook, I love wearing superman t-shirts and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in Northern VA not too far from DC. I spent a lot of my growing up singing classical music and i love doing that still. you could also call me an adrenaline junkie i love the rush of doing something exciting, whether it be just playing a sport like basketball or football, or jumping off a cliff, i just love being active. Growing up i had a problem with obedience be it to My parents, my teachers, peers, or even God sometimes. i didn't like to listen to other people because of my own pride, i didn't like to admit that other people were "better" than me. because of this attitude i didn't' feel the Spirit of the Lord as strongly as i should have. this led me to a point where i doubted everything i had been taught growing up. and wanted to leave it all. at that point i had to make a decision, and no matter how much i wanted to go the worlds way i couldn't do it. faith is in the end a decision, so i decided to believe the gospel. i have since found more joy and confidence in my life than i ever would have expected.

Why I am a Mormon

Being Mormon is the way to be! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints isn't just another christian church, it is the christian church. Jesus Christ is literally the head of this faith and all of the work it accomplishes. the organization is perfect, the leaders are inspired, and the holy Spirit will testify of all this to anyone who wants to know!

How I live my faith

i have learned that humility and obedience aren't as bad as i once thought they were. so i use my god given agency to do what God wants me to. and thats that!

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Mark Bott
We do have paid clergy only they "lay up their treasure in heaven" rather than down here. Callings and positions in this church may not have any kind of monetary compensation, however we are blessed when we choose to serve the Lord in his Church. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Mark Bott
Having faith is a decision. you can have the evidence that Hebrews 11 speaks of all day but if you are not willing to humble yourself and have faith in someone greater than all the promptings in the world aren't worth much Show more Show less
