Hi I'm Steve C.

I like doing things...and I'm a mormon

About Me

I like doing things. I start my day off by cycling 20-30 miles, sitting down for breakfast in my cycling kit, getting the kids and myself ready for work, then by 8:00 I'm gone. My job is to establish strategic partnerships, which is a lot of work and fun. I don't work late, because I've got four little ones at home and an amazing wife. Needless to say, it is nonstop until bedtime. Saturday is another story, that's the day I try to hike, fish, woodwork, or help friends. Occasionally, I'll sneak in a bike race. Sunday is a day of rest when I attend church and spend time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon, because I have had special experiences that confirmed not only God's love for me, but also that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church restored again on the earth. One such experience was when I was a young teenager trying to decide whether or not I should keep the commandments. I didn't want to, but it seemed foolish to not at least ask God for guidance. I had read the Book of Mormon and thought it was true, but I never really asked God to confirm it to me. So I prayed to ask God if the book was true. God answered my prayers. He did want me to obey the commandments, and he confirmed that the Book of Mormon was true and that the church was true and reliable. There have been many special moments since this day that make me want to keep being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

First, I try and serve God. If I can keep that in mind, it makes all the difference. My church assignment is to work with the young men. We have a scout troop and we do our best to integrate the best of BSA with the youth curriculum. We're mostly focused on developing upstanding young men who can lead the future families, churches and communities. I also visit certain families to teach and serve them in any way I can.
