Hi I'm Steve

I'm from Oklahoma. Later, I learned about the Church and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Every male in three generations in my family, grandfather, father, brothers and I, are all lawyers. It is what I always wanted to do from a young child.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager, I looked for what could be true. It did not seem that anyone really knew. At college I came in contact with the Church. Not only did they claim to have the truth, but also that there was a way to find out read the Book of Mormon, pray and ask God if it is true, and receive an answer. Over the course of about a year and a half I read and did some praying. It seemed that one obstacle was whether I would live it, even if it were true. Over time I decided that one who knew would have to live it and be true to it. Finally, I prayed with a real intent, i.e. with an attitude that I would live it, if it were true. I did receive a confirmation from God through the Holy Ghost it was a feeling that filled my being with a sweetness, like honey on the tongue, but throughout my whole body, and it was quite overpowering. Those feelings stayed for days. I joined the Church, served a mission, and have participated in the Church for decades since.

How I live my faith

My wife and i are assigned to work with young singles, ages 18 - 30. Also, over time I have taken under wing several elderly and watched over them until they passed away. Mostly, I concern myself with trying to do what is right and true.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

 If the truth about life and death, earth and eternity, are on the earth, not as assumptions or constructs made by men, but as they really are, how could that not be the most important knowledge to have? Is it not easier to fulfill your purpose when you clearly know what it is and why things are as they are? Since I do know that the Church doctrines are true from revelations from God, not once, but many times, I work to spread that knowledge to any who care to know. Show more Show less
