Hi I'm Steve

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father. We have five children and two grandchildren - they are such a blessing. We like to get together and enjoy each others company. I enjoy the beauties of nature and enjoy backpacking.

Why I am a Mormon

I love that Heavenly Father has a Plan of Happiness for all of His children. I have studied and prayed about the doctrines of the gospel and I have received answers to those prayers. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and I have put it to the test of asking God if it is true - and He has answered.

How I live my faith

Family is such a large part of my faith - since families can be eternal it must be the central part of my thoughts and activities. It is through service to others that I find my greatest happiness and direction in life. I have had the opportunity, through my church, to serve many people of many different ages - from teaching families, teaching music to children, being a scoutmaster, leading a congregation,etc. I have also had opportunities to work with Spanish-speaking families in my community. My faith is not a Sunday thing - it is who I am and how I live my daily life.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

When we see life more from the perspective of the teachings of Jesus Christ then we can be better husbands and wives, better fathers and mothers. It is easier to forgive others as I recognize that we all are children of our Heavenly Father. My faith in Jesus Christ makes me want to try harder to be the kind of person that He would have me be - to reach out to others in friendship and to try to bless their lives. Show more Show less
