Hi I'm Steve Horrocks

I grew up in Salt Lake City. Moved my family to Florida, Texas, and then Arkansas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been working in technical product marketing for over 20 years. I have four fabulous children. While I was born and raised in the LDS faith, I married an incredible woman that was a convert to the LDS church. I'm a musician. I'm a songwriter. My brothers and I create our own ridiculously campy movies - which I edit.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born and rasied in the Church, I - like all members- had to go through my own conversion process. I left the Church at age 18 to try everything the world has to offer. After ten years I'd had enough of that destructive emptiness and I put my life in order through attending church meetings, reading the scriptures, and living the Gospel. My first daughter had been born and I wanted her to have the best life I could give her. Deep down inside of me, I knew that should include a gospel-centered home. During my reactivation period I had many experiences when the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ was manifest to me. I am a Mormon because I sought out my own testimony of the truthfulness of the restored Gospel and our Heavenly Father's plan for us, and I have received that confirmation many, many times over.

How I live my faith

In the Book of Mormon we read, "We are saved by grace after all we can do". To this end one of our Church's strengths is the fact that we all have the opportunity to serve each other in various callings of responsibility. I have served in a variety of positions including Bishopric Second Counselor, Gospel Doctrine Instructor, Young Men's Presidency First Counselor, and Sunday School President. I live my faith through attending church, serving in my calling(s), and working together with my wife to maintain a home where we have regular family prayer, Family Home Evening, and opportunites to teach our children how to live Christ-like, responsible lives in the community. I'm not perfect. My family is not perfect. But we truly try to live the commandments and be good examples of our faith to those around us.
