Hi I'm Steve

I'm a Mormon. I was born and live in the Pacific Northwest. Better known as the Evergreen State. I work in the Electrical Industry

About Me

I am a husband and father of six. I love to participate in outdoor activities, such as fishing and hiking. I like 1964 Chevy Novas and 1972 Chevy pickups. I have a 1972 Yamaha 650sx. I enjoy playing just about any sport.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been blessed when I serve my fellow beings. That is one of the aspects of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that I truly enjoy. I serve with those who are striving to be the best that they can. Even though I was raised in the church, I had to gain my own testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. This came as I was living away from home and needing to understand what life was all about. It was the teachings of my mother that kept giving me hope. Those teaching then became mine as I read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. I know that we all must find our own salvation and come to Christ in our own way. This is why the gospel will continue to spread throughout the world. The voice of our eternal Father in Heaven is calling to each of us. It is a matter of whether we will allow Him to direct our lives or continue to wander in darkness. The way to true happiness is in serving our fellow man, and learning and keeping the commandments of Jesus Christ. I know that He lives and that through the blessing of the teachings of Him we can and are blessed. May you find this helpful in your search for truth is my prayer.

How I live my faith

Presently, I have the pleasure of serving as a Bishop in the ward that I live. This calling is so rewarding and yet very hard at times. Bishops in the Church serve for five to seven years. This calling is responsible for the spiritual and physical welfare of the ward. In addition to being the one in charge of the ward I have responsibilities to make sure that my own home is in order. I work full time and give time to my family and almost all of my spare time is in serving the youth and members of the ward. A ward contains anywhere from 200 to 600 member. Not all are active and so I spend a good deal of my service time seeking out those that have wandered away from the church. The only reward that I get in doing this work is the blessing of seeing others have happy lives.
