Hi I'm Stephen

I love baseball and my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play college baseball as a student athlete. Baseball has always been a big part of my life ever since I was a little kid. I love the outdoors and being active. I'm very competitive and I will almost never backdown to a challenge, whether it be one-on-one baseketball, or a chess match. I love my family more than words can express as they have always been there for me and supported me. And now i'm a missionary serving in the California San Fernando Mission. I love the Lord and this gospel so much and I love sharing that wih people.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a mormon ever since I was a little kid. I grew up into a mormon home with righteous parents that lived and taught us the gospel. I continue to follow Jesus Christ because I know that his church is true. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore Jesus Christ's true church in these last days, and that he did translate the Book of Mormon through the power of God. This gospel has brought me and my family such happiness as we've tried our very best to keep the commandments and choose the right. I love this church so much and I will follow it all through the eternities. I know Jesus Christ is my savior and that He and Heavenly Father know each of us personally and care about us. I love them, and I very much want to live my life so that I can return into their presence once again. I know that this church is led and guided today by a true living prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I am so grateful to be a member of this church. If I know anything in this life, I know one thing for certain. This church is true and I love it and cherish it.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday to worship the Lord. I will lead and conduct meetings and carry out my duties as a priesthood holder. I love going to church on Sunday to put myself aside from the world for a couple of hours each week and focus on what's most important in life, the gospel of Jesus Christ. During church I love learning about ancient and present day prophets who have very inspiring stories making me want to be the best I can, as I try to follow their example. It's also very fun to go to church activities, where I can have fun with my friends at least once a week doing fun wholesome activities. Now I'm serving the Lord as a missionary in the California San Fernando Valley Mission. I love it so much and it's the best desicion I've ever made.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It is a record of the writings of many prophets who lived on the American Continent anciently. They teach of Christ's atoning sacrifice, resurrection, doctrine, life and plan for us. I know for myself that we can come closer unto our Savior, Jesus Christ, through reading the Book of Mormon. I have read the Book of Mormon and applied the precepts and teachings of the Book in my life. I have prayed to know if the Book is true, and I know with all my heart that it is the word of God. I know through reading that Book I have come to know my Savior more, and that as I continue to study and learn from it, that I will become more like my Savior. I promise you that if you believe and love the Bible, that you too will believe and love this Book. This Book has changed my life forever, I read it everyday and I am so grateful to have such a blessing in my life. I invite you, to read the Book, to ponder the message it contains, and to ask God in the name of Jesus Christ if the Book is true. I promise if you do this, that you will know, as I do. That the Book of Mormon is true, and it will change your life. It changed mine. Show more Show less
