Hi I'm Steve Miles
I'm a missionary, a brother, a son, a friend. I love to laugh, read, and learn. I'm a mormon.
Hi! I'm from Utah and serving a mission in the West Virginia, Charleston Mission currently. I am addicted to reading, mainly Young Adult/Adult fantasy series or novels. My current favorite authors would be Patrick Rothfuss, David and Leigh Eddings, and Tamora Pierce. I also love to play a good game of Basketball with the people around me. My personal belief is that everyone has had their good and bad experiences in life. Whenever someone does something that offends me I stop and think it over, because I don't know how they were raised or how their life has gone, so just smile and shake it off. Love them as they should be loved, as a Child of our Heavenly Father.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born and raised mormon and found happiness and a sense of peace and security in it that always felt more...good and right than what I saw in other people around me. But I never really found my testimony in the Gospel until I got my call to serve for two years in West Virginia. At that time, and even now, I started to earnestly study out the Book of Mormon on my own time and in my own fashion. I tested the words and principles found in it and discovered or uncovered the seed of faith thats spoken of in Alma 32 that had been planted in me when I was 8 and was still...in awe, if you will, of the different things and diversity I found all around me. Its been growing ever since that time and I've continued to nourish it with my own faith and hope in Christ. I have a testimony of our church and love it with all my heart. I love the Lord and love being in his service!!!
How I live my faith
I live my faith by doing my best to learn more about the scriptures and make them a part of me. I also follow the commandments to the best of my ability and do my best to make my father in heaven proud of me. I also have devoted 2 years of my life to serving the lord and helping others come unto him and receive his restored gospel. I'm also continually trying to improve myself, a testing of different parts of what I learn if you will, and try to find the why's and how's of different things. When I find these things out by myself it increases my feelings of conversion and helps me to have faith in other aspects of my life. In my current area of service, and everywhere I'll be for the next 2 years, I and my companion work and teach with a lot of people who don't fully understand the gospel and want to learn more about it.
