Hi I'm Steven
I was born in Arizona. I was a missionary in North Carolina. Now I am a full-time student working part time. I'm a Mormon!
I am the oldest child in a good family who taught me good values. I love swimming for exercise, for competition, and just for fun. I also enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. I also enjoy woodcarving and building or fixing things. I am an Eagle Scout. I like to practice the piano and the organ. My Mom taught us at home until I went to a community college where I got an associates degree. I served as a full-time missionary in North Carolina to share the gospel with those who want to come closer to Jesus Christ. Serving as a missionary was perhaps the best time of my life. Now, I am a full time student, and work part time driving. The most important thing in my life is my relationship with God. It affects every part of my life every day of my life.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I received a witness that it is true. As I continue to study and try to do what God want's me to do, I continue to learn more ways God shows his love for me. I know from experience that doing what God wants me to do is the thing that brings me the most happiness. It brings peace in difficult times. I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself that it is Christ's true restored church on the earth today with a living prophet who was called by God to teach us what we need. I'm a Mormon because I know it is true, and I know that nothing else can bring me the same happiness that the fullness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ brings to my life.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by doing the best I can to be a true diciple of Jesus Christ by putting God first in my life. I show my love for Jesus Christ by following his commandments and his example. I serve others by trying to follow Christ's example which is to serve and love others and to be a true friend. I participate in service opportunities at church, and look for other ways I can serve in my community. I try to be generous and kind, and try to follow the example Jesus Christ set to serve those in need. I give my best effort when God wants me to serve in his church to teach the children, help people with genealogy, share the gospel, be a missionary, or whatever it is that God wants me to do. I know I'm not perfect at doing any of these things, but I give it my best effort and rely on the Lord to help me become better.
