Hi I'm Steve.

I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I speak Korean. I play trumpet and piano, and teach conducting to choir directors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love volleyball and swimming. I am a classical and jazz musician, playing the trumpet and the piano. I have master's and doctoral degrees in choral conducting. Of all the things I do, I enjoy most spending time with my wife and children.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found that faith in Jesus Christ is the key to living a life of happiness and peace. Mormonism has helped my faith in Christ grow in unique ways during the troubled times in which we live: 1) The Book of Mormon stands as an additional witness that the Bible is true, verifying and clarifying that following Jesus Christ is the only way to peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come; 2) Living prophets of God receive guidance and direction for all of God's children today—just as prophets in biblical times—evidencing our Heavenly Father's continuing interest in how we live our lives; 3) The Mormon teaching that families are ordained by God and that following Christ allows family relationships to continue in eternity brings hope and happiness in family life, despite all of the forces in society that are destructive to families.

How I live my faith

In the 1980s, I lived in South Korea for two years as a missionary, teaching people there about Jesus Christ and the path he has laid out for our happiness. These days, I continue to volunteer my time to coordinate the cooperative efforts of church missionaries with members of several local congregations, in sharing the same message with our friends and neighbors. At home, my wife and I gather with our children morning and evening to pray together. We also read a chapter of scripture with our children every day and discuss with them how our knowledge of Christ and his teachings should affect the decisions we make and the way we interact with others.
