Hi I'm Steven
I have a family of five of which I became a part of a few years back when I married my wife. I live in Florida and love the beautiful weather and scenery we have here. Originally from close to Chicago, Illinois, US, this is a big change for me but I love it down here. I enjoy reading, playing some facebook games, listening to good music, and just enjoying a nice walk. I like to play golf but do not have a lot of time to do that any more. I used to run quite a bit and completed two half-marathons and two marathons. It was quite the accomplish and I did that all after I turned 40!
Why I am a Mormon
Mainly I am a Mormon because my parents were and raised me to be such. I didn't really understand what that meant until I got older and realized how important it is in my life to be a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. Now as I get older and have a family, I truly understand why the Lord has placed me in my family and given me the blessing of the gospel in my life. Having modern-day prophets and apostles help so much to deal with the problems that occur on a day-to-day basis. To be able to read the scriptures and listen to the prophet gives me the wisdom and knowledge I need to make good choices and help my children understand where they can turn to find the truth. I love Jesus Christ and I am happy to be a Mormon!
How I live my faith
I live my faith by trying to be a good person to those I meet. I serve in my church by doing clerical work needed so our leaders can be with the members. I keep track of who attends our church and handle the ordering of supplies that allow everyone else to serve in the church as well. I get to work with our leaders and get to see how much they truly love those they serve with and help me do my best as well. I also get to visit some wonderful families each month to see how they are and to give them a message. They are amazing examples to me and I am so happy I get to see them.
