Hi I'm Steve Andersen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Since I have a wife and five daughters, my license plate is "6 to 1," the voting ratio in our family! My wife Kate and I have 12 grandchildren, the joy of our lives. I am an attorney. I've been a Mormon all my life, and our family goes back a number of generations in the Church. In fact, my great-great grandfather, Erastus Snow, was one of the first two mormon pioneers to set foot in the Salt Lake Valley. But my belief in the Church is all my own.

Why I am a Mormon

As a trial attorney, I'm used to evaluating evidence and employing logic. I appreciate the intellectual honesty of the Church, which candidly states that if its claims about the origins of the Book of Mormon are not true, the Church loses all credibility. I've studied the Church's claims about the origens of the Book of Mormon, and I've studied all the competing claims. Frankly, the Church's claim, as amazing as it is, is the only one that stands up to analysis. And the Holy Ghost confirms to me that it is true. Further, the Church helps me keep my family close knit and helps us teach the next generation the best way to live and stay close to God.

How I live my faith

Kate and I teach a weekly, university-level course in the scriptures. We love our association with these bright young people. We also attend church each Sunday, attend the temple regularly, make voluntary contributions to help the poor and needy, and try to live up to the standards and ideals of our faith.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Steve Andersen
The Book of Mormon is the translation of the record of ancient peoples who lived on the American continent. It includes the accouind of Christ's visit to these people soon after His resurrection, and it contains the teaching of His gospel. It was trasnlated by Joseph Smith by the gift and power of God.
