Book Condition: Fine
About this title
I learned early that if you don’t want to go to school for a career . . . then this was the life. And there were rules. You better not drink, you better not be a big shot and you better always stay low and keep your mouth shut. If you’re going to play the game, you’ve got to play smart.
Thus began Mario Facione’s slow descent into the Mafia world. With a desire to please his father, Facione kept the rules taught him - don’t get caught, know your people. . . never let them have control of what you’re doing, and never let anyone fully know what you’re up to.
So when two clean-cut young men in dark suits showed up on his doorstep, Facione’s main concern was to figure out the scam they were selling. Instead, he became surprisingly relaxed as these two answered every question he had unsuccessfully asked other clergymen. He learned real truth and began a journey towards knowledge. Yes, there is a reason why we are here on earth; yes, you can re-remember who we are and yes, it’s true, Heavenly Father still speaks through a modern-day prophet.
Marion Facione’s story is one man’s extraordinary journey through the darkness into the light. Reading his story will confirm again that the gospel is truly for every child of God who is willing to change . . . even someone who wants to go from Mafia to Mormon.About the Author:
After hiding a cache of incriminating documents in a secret locker at the Detroit airport, Mario Facione negotiated life and freedom with past "Italian Association" bosses. In the process, his wife left him and he was bombarded with lawsuits that left him financially destitute. But he trusted the Lord and remained resolute in his newfound religion—The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Today, Mario Facione is a successful businessman who lives in Michigan with his wife. They have three grown children and four grandchildren. He is also a temple worker in the Detroit, Michigan Temple.
Mafia to Mormon is his first book.
