Hi I'm Stephen

I grew up in Tempe, Arizona.

About Me

I'm a husband, father of 7, and a physician. I mostly work and spend time with my family. Our family is blessed with a daughter with autism whom we love and who teaches us a lot. We believe she has a perfect spirit trapped in an imperfect body, but that after this life when she is resurrected she will have a perfect body to match her spirit. We look forward to really getting to know her better then. We believe that families can be together forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to grow up in a family that already embraced the gospel. Because of this I've always had good feelings about the Church and Jesus Christ's gospel. The biggest single event that has changed my life for the better has been reading the Book of Mormon. Really studying the Book of Mormon has blessed me to know who Jesus Christ is, who I am, and how to live happily and prepare to return to Heavenly Parents.

How I live my faith

Together with my wife we try to be helpful in the community and at school. Currently I help two others who serve 3,000 members of our Church. Together we teach and organize activities that allow service to neighbors and members of the Church. We also help through The Boy Scouts of America serving the community in various ways.
