Hi I'm Steve

I am a husband, father and grandfather. I love my family and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to do things with my family especially my nine grandkids. I enjoy travel and seeing so many wonderful places around the world. I went on a LDS church mission to Sweden for 2 and 1/2 years. I love Sweden and the Swedish people. I was born and raised in the Arizona heat, Sweden is so different, so green and cool. I like sports especially bike riding, skiing and tennis. I own several Dairy Queen restaurants - what could be a better job. I graduated from Arizona State University with a accounting degree. I have lived most of my life in Arizona and think it is a great place to raise a family but I do think about living in another country, Sweden or Norway.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in God and Jesus Christ. I have received great blessings because of my faith in Christ. My faith in Him has help make me a better husband and father. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - a Mormon - because I believe it is Christ's church on earth today. I think many other churches and church members love and serve the Lord but for me the Mormon church does these things the way the Savior taught. Mormons love others and look for ways to bless the lives of members and non-members. The Mormon church reaches out across the world and tries to help in times of need. I want to be a member of a church that believes in Christ but more importantly that lives His teachings.

How I live my faith

I try to show my love and appreciate to God by going to church and serving in callings in the church. I have been blessed financial and am happy to give back a part of the what I have received from God to others in tithing and other offerings. I am a Bishop in the Mormon church and love the members of my congregation. I try to help the members as needed with their finances, personal problems and spiritual problems. It is a great blessing in my life to be able to help others.
