Hi I'm Steph

My happy life involves God, Family, Constant Learning, and Video Games. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love learning and growing, especially closer to God. I have a Associate's Degree in Arts and Science with a Major in Science. I love photography, being outdoors, writing stories and poetry, working with children, volunteering, hanging with my family, and playing video games. I love to work with people and create laughs. Teaching about Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father is a huge blessing to me because it makes the world seem like a better place.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter-Day Saint because I know fully that they Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. My life is meaningless when I devote most of my time to other things than God. I always strive to cling onto God because he really is my source of happiness. I have dealt with losing many loved ones to death. It was some of the most dark but beautiful moments of my life. Through the power of the Holy Ghost I was able to be at peace and trust in God's will. While I have battled loneliness and grief, sadness and sorrow, coldness and bitterness, I came through with the absolute knowledge that God lives and has a plan for us. A plan that leads us to pure happiness because it is focused on Jesus Christ's sacrifice to help us in our darkest moments of life. It is a huge blessing to be able to pray and tell God all of my weaknesses, worries, sorrows, pain, and hurt. When I truly talk to him and bare my whole heart, he blesses me with strength to be able to endure through the trials in my life. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because life is hard. I am constantly faced with disappointments, failures, and miss expectations. Yet, at the end of the Day, when I pray, I can feel the peace that can only come from God. He makes my days better and more bearable. I know Jesus Christ suffered and died for my sins, afflictions, and hurts so that I don't have to suffer. I know God's purpose is to help me be happy and live with him again. He is an all perfect being, with a perfect plan, who will lead me perfectly in ways that is perfect for me. I would never have it in any other way.  

How I live my faith

How I live my faith starts with me on the inside. I crave those feelings of peace, happiness, serenity, and love. When I feel those things, I feel close to God. It's a huge blessing to be able to have this balance in my life. As a result, I want to share it with others. I use to teach the children 11 and younger in my church about their relationships with Heavenly Father. I love volunteer work that involves interaction with kids. I love the happy feelings I get from teaching people about their relationships with Heavenly Father and Christ. I also have served a mission so that I can share all of this with people I meet on a daily basis. I know that service is a wonderful way to live life. With all of my heart, I love serving people. I try to return the kindness that Christ has shown me through his suffering. I know the Atonement matters a lot to me and I know people will love the message of 'You aren't alone anymore." That's what I try to represent. That is my purpose on earth. By the way, you aren't alone anymore. Christ and Heavenly Father loves you so much and I know you can feel it as you read these things. They care deeply about you and are proud of your accomplishments. They cry with you when you cry and feel so low. They are always there for you, realize or not. They love you.
