Hi I'm Steve

I grew up in NY & NJ, am retired from the United States Navy & I'm am a Mormon.

About Me

I retired from the United States Navy in March of 2006 after 22 yrs, 8 mo's & 6 days of Honorable service. Currently, I work as a contractor for the US Navy (Aviation Maintenance).

Why I am a Mormon

A co-worker introduced me to "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" in April 1995. Why did I join "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" ? Please keep reading..... I lost my Brother & Father several years earlier and I had questions that couldn't be answered to my satisfaction. I wanted TRUTH; not what someone believed, or thought, or supposed. I wanted TRUTH. I spoke with many people/clergy to no avail. Raised in a different religion & not satisfied with what I had been taught, I resigned to myself that "IF" Jesus had a Church on the Earth, that would be the only one worth joining. It would be HIS church with HIS doctrines. Isn't that what we all seek? True doctrine? Not the doctrines people. Now, at this present stage in my life I did not even KNOW if there was a GOD or if a man named Jesus Christ ever existed. There were so many churches with different doctrines and all springing up from 1 book. So which one was true, if any were true at all? So again, I resigned to myself that "IF" Jesus had a Church on the Earth, that is the ONLY church I would join. And I lived my life as well as I could in the way that "I" interpreted The Bible, in the "Hope" that GOD and Jesus Christ did exist. In the hope that life did go on after we leave this world. The opposite was to dismal & depressing to dwell upon. Then one day my good friend Dave invited my wife & I attend his church. After attending his church a couple of times, he asked if we would allow some missionaries into our home that had a wonderful message to share. Again we accepted. After 2.5 months of prayer, fasting & reading the scriptures I gained a sure witness that God lives, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and that "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" has been restored to the Earth by His Son Jesus Christ. The ONLY "True" & Living Church on the Earth. It's doctrine IS pure & undefiled. It is TRUE, & that is what I have always sought.
