Hi I'm Steve

I'm a husband. I'm a dad. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in, and around Salt Lake. My brother and I raised by a single mom. We moved around a lot in the valley, but finally settled in West Valley while I was in 5th grade, with only one more move when I was a senior in high school. Well, I did the normal stuff; went on a mission for the church; came back and got married; had a few kids; got divorced (OK, maybe not so normal stuff); got married again (to a different girl); had a few more kids; ended up in Arizona with a beautiful family and a pretty good life. Oh, don't get me wrong, things are not even nearly "perfect", but I wouldn't trade what I have. I do NOT believe that hindsight is 20/20. You take what you have and move forward. If you don't like something in your life, change it! I work every day to be a better husband, a better father, and a better disciple of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Lots of thoughts going through my head about this question. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes sense. Our Heavenly Father's plan for us makes sense. I can't be anything else. Once I received my very own personal testimony, when my Heavenly Father touched my heart through the Holy Ghost, told me he knew ME, that he loved ME, and that if I followed the path of our Savior, Jesus Christ, I could return to live with Him, well, I can't ever deny that. Hopefully that makes sense to you. It's a challenge, but every day I try to think, and live, in an eternal perspective. This life is a blip, but with eternal rewards or repercussions. I try to align my goal with my Heavenly Father's goal, an eternal family.

How I live my faith

One day at a time. Each day is a new beginning. I try to live my life as a good example to my family, friends, and others I associate with, of what a true disciple of Jesus Christ is. I currently teach a group of 15-16 year olds in my congregation. They are AWESOME kids! I know that they come from great families, but they are already strong and righteous youth in their own rights. I find that I learn so much from them as we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ together.
