Hi I'm Stephen

I love my family and my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a professor of art, a potter, a teacher, a mentor, a husband and a father. I love to spend time with my family, bike, swim, run, yo-yo, eat, play disc golf, camp, hike, and go to the beach. I enjoy bagpipe music and appreciate those who can play it well.  

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because it makes me happy! I believe that as I live the commandments and am obedient to the things that God has asked me to do he blesses me, and that in turn brings me joy. I know that in my life I have received many blessings from my Heavenly Father. I know that God has a plan for all of his children, and the central figure in that plan is our Savior Jesus Christ. I believe that the priesthood power of God has been restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith Jr. I know that the scriptures testify of the Savior, and as I study them they give me guidance and direction in my life. I know that one way that I can serve my Heavenly Father is by serving my fellow men.  

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to live a Christ like life. I strive to follow the Savior and his example. I strive to serve those around me in my community and in my ward. In my ward I serve as the Bishop or ecclesiastical leader of the congregation. This gives me the opportunity to help others through council and spiritual guidance.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

We believe that husband and wife and families can be together in heaven. That the sealing power, or priesthood, that Jesus Christ brought when he was on the earth has once again been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and that this power can seal families together on earth enabling them to live together forever in heaven.
