Hi I'm Steve

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I'm a dad with three great kids ages 14, 10, and 7. I'm a technology security executive. When people ask what I do for a living I tell them, "I catch bad guys on the Internet." I'm a student pilot, I travel a lot for work, and I'm a leader in the local church. Life is full, but I'm happiest when I'm spending time with my wife and kids. My family means everything to me!

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky to grow up in the church. But gaining my own testimony has taken a lifetime. I see the influence of the Lord in my life in small and simple ways. I know he loves me and wants me to be happy, and so I try to lead a good life. I'm not perfect, but I try. Being a Mormon helps me be my best self. The encouragement and friendship I have with other members, the leaders who shepherd, and the Prophet who gives counsel from the Lord all help keep me on a path of safety and peace.

How I live my faith

As a husband and father, it is my responsibility to teach my family about the Lord, and to help them gain a testimony. I do this by taking them to church with me every Sunday, sharing my love of the Lord with them, teaching them to pray, and helping them to be good people. It isn't hard to be a good Mormon, you just have to try to "be good!"

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Steve
Our purpose in life is to find joy. By keeping the commandments and serving each other, we demonstrate our love for the Lord and find peace and happiness in this life. Through faith in Jesus Christ, we have the assurance that one day we can return to live with our Father in Heaven.  Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Steve
When was 19, I served as a missionary in Louisiana and Mississippi. The work was hard, but it was one of the happiest times in my life. As a missionary, my job was to seek out and teach people who had a desire to learn about Jesus Christ and his church. If you want to learn more about the Mormon church, ask the missionaries to talk to you. They are eager to help. Show more Show less
