Hi I'm Stephen McFarland
I'm a Mormon. What can I do for ya?
I'm a second generation member. The missionaries knocked on my parents' door in 1966 in Indianapolis, IN. My mom said referring to the missionaries, "They know something and I have to find out!" The rest is history. My wife and I have three children. We're both teachers. I served a mission in Bolivia and continue to have positive experiences serving in the church.
Why I am a Mormon
Christ said, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you." There's so much hurt, heart ache, and otherwise emptiness all around us. I assert that the peace and happiness I feel can only be found living the principles taught in Mormonism.
How I live my faith
I go at my own pace realizing I'm the only one that can live my life. I pay attention to my actions and make corrections when necessary as I reap the consequences of all of them. I strive to adhere to each piece of truth I discover. As I do my mind is enlarged, my life is enriched, and I am at peace with myself, my family, and my fellow man.
