Hi I'm Stephen

I have lived around the world: England, Costa Rica, the Philippines, Denmark, Australia, Canada, Germany and the US. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student studying Manufacturing Engineering. I love working with my hands, building things, and traveling. In my travels I have seen many amazing things. I enjoy assimilating with new cultures and exploring the beauties of nature. I love playing and watching sports, especially football. Nothing beats having a good time with friends whether is watching sports, playing games, or taking a long overdue road trip.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ is Christ's church upon the earth today. I know that the Book of Mormon is the true and as a result I know that Joseph Smith is a true Prophet. I know that these things are true because I have prayed and asked Heavenly Father. I received a witness from the Holy Ghost that it is true.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being the best person I can be. I try to put forth my best effort in everything I do, whether its in my school work, work, service, trying to live the Gospel, or just having fun. In the Gospel we are taught that we must be perfect. The best way to get there is through Jesus Christ and by putting forth our best effort. I also try to live my faith by understanding that I'm not perfect and there is always room for improvement.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

There are countless things that tell me there is a God. Nature is the first. The way ecosystems work is too perfect. The way the rain cycle works. It is far too complicated not to have been designed and created by a divine being. Next is the human body by far the most complex structure we know of. The detail that has gone into every inch of our bodies is too much to just be coincidence. I am amazed at how it all works from the brain, muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels, lungs, all of it is incredible. I love my Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
