Hi I'm Stefan

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Atlanta participating in the Methodist church.

About Me

My hobbies and interests include music, sports, art, gardening and food and cooking. I played basketball extensively until age 55 when advancing age and diminishing ability and health caught up with me. Business as an entrepreneur has been my source of income and has been largely enjoyable and rewarding.

Why I am a Mormon

The first Mormon I ever met was my future wife when I was 19. Her goodness and righteousness was not what I was looking for but I enjoyed it and found her to be different from anyone I had ever met before. Trying to live a better life myself to accompany hers turned out to be more enjoyable than I anticipated. I joined the church at 24, so it took awhile, but I did it with conviction and have never looked back. Those two decisions, my wife and the church, are the greatest and best decisions I ever made. Everything I have experienced in the church has been a tremendous blessing, not only to me but my family.

How I live my faith

My faith has been strengthened repeatedly by living the gospel and seeing the Lord touch our lives in positive ways. By participating in church callings and assignments it has allowed me to grow and be able to accomplish things I never would have experienced. And those experiences have also translated into my personal life, family, and professional work and been of invaluable assistance in living a successful and satisfying life. I try of follow the example of the Savior and be kind, loving and supportive always, but especially at home. After your personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ home is where it all starts. And attempting to do that, not perfectly but always trying to do better, has made the home and family a place that seems heavenly. Like a retreat from the challenges and adversity of the world. It is something that I hope does indeed become a heavenly experience in the eternities.
