Hi I'm Stewart

I love family, friends, playing guitar, computers, and being a Mormon!!

About Me

I love spending time with my family and friends, and being with them as often as possible. I also love building, fixing, experimenting, playing, and working on computers, and it makes me happy when I get to help someone else with their computer, whether it be a simple question or a virus or whatever. I love to play the guitar and make my best attempts to create my own songs. I went to college for about a year, studying Information Systems, before deciding to put that on hold to serve a mission for two years. After serving in Wisconsin for two years as a full-time missionary, I'm now back at college. I love helping others, and trying to make their day, even if only a little brighter, by doing simple things for them to show them my love, or even just telling them that I sincerely love them. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I know that he lives and guides me, as I know he does all of us.

Why I am a Mormon

Nothing means more to me than the love I have for my family and friends. From the time I was a small boy I always admired the love and kindness that my mom and dad entreated to each other and to me, and my other siblings. As I grew up my parents taught me that I have a Heavenly Father who has an even greater love for me and all of us, his children, and that I could show my love back to him by serving those around me. As I have followed that counsel and served those around me, just as Jesus Christ did, I have grown to love my family and friends with a love that I never thought was possible, and I have built bonds that cannot be broken by death. Knowing that I can still be with my family and those I care about after death and forevermore provides a peace in my life that nothing else ever could. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to share forever with those that I love, and because I am a Mormon, I know exactly what I need to do to make that possible.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to follow Jesus Christ's example and to become who he would have me become, and to serve those he has sent me to serve. I served a two year full-time mission in the Wisconsin Milwaukee Mission. I love striving to help strengthen the youth by building them up and letting them know how proud I am of them for the high standards that many of them have. I love complimenting them and others to help them know that I sincerely care about them, and to help them know how lucky I feel to be around them and to be their friends. I love the basic principles of the church that help me better serve those around me. I love helping everyone I can, no matter how small the task. I know that I am serving God when I serve his children here on earth, and I am grateful to be able to do so.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Pornography is a deadly poison, and should be avoided as much as possible. It will destroy our families and the relationships that mean the most to us if we let it. From the time I was a small boy and starting becoming more and more interested in computers, I knew that if I was going to work on computers I would need to promise myself never to get involved in pornography in any way. That promise I made to myself as a small boy has helped me avoid the evils of pornography in so many ways. I do my best to avoid pornography like the plague and so should everyone - especially those who spend a lot of time on the computer. We may not be able to avoid pornography altogether, but we can promise ourselves to cast it out from our presence whenever we can. If we promise ourselves now that we will turn away whenever a pornographic image or item presents itself. We'll find that we have much more strength to resist its evils than we thought. That strength comes from Jesus Christ, and it is evidence that he is there for us and loves each of us individually and wants to bless us for doing what is right. I know that with the help of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we can each protect ourselves and those we love from the evils of pornography, and that if we follow Jesus Christ, he will lead us to the sources of true and lasting happiness, our families and his teachings.

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

 Absolutely. Thanks to special places of worship, known as temples, husband and wife can be married together and sealed to each other for time and all eternity. This means that if they live true to each other, and to the commandments of Jesus Christ, they can live in happiness together and with their children even after this life and forevermore. This promise means so much to me personally because my biggest goal in life is to live worthy to marry the girl of my dreams in the temple, and for us to be there for each other forever, and to raise a loving family together. Looking forward to the day when that dream of mine comes true helps me have the strength to live worthy now so that I can be sure that I will be a worthy husband for my future wife and so that together we will be able to build our relationship on trust, and help build each other and our children up through love for each other and love for our Savior, Jesus Christ.   Show more Show less
