Hi I'm Stephen Mills

I love myself almost too much and enjoy music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play tuba. I'd venture to say I'm pretty good at it too. I'm going to college studying music. I take great satisfaction finding balance in my life. I love being myself. I flourish when I do that one right. I like church. It was an acquired taste. The scriptures are pretty cool too.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it's good for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. I think I'm starting that point in life where it gets really hard to get ahead in things like money, school, relationships and me time. So I'm really careful that I treat each of those aspects as acts of faith, not taking short cuts and being pretty honest with myself. Somehow I'm making it. Not sure how to explain it but to ascribe it to God.

What is faith?

Stephen Mills
Faith is deciding and working. It requires you to believe you are right. Too many people are afraid of being wrong. If you're struggling with a decision, major or minor, make a decision. You'll be right. Even if it was the wrong one you'll be right. God loves us. He knows what you want and where you're trying to get even when you don't. Trust Him and then work. He can't guide you if you're not making decisions. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Stephen Mills
From my perspective, families are so important because it brings so much diversity to my life. Each member of my family loves different things and hates other things. Sometimes we get along great and sometimes not so much. And that's what's so great about it! It gives something honest to our lives. The greatest part about my family is that I've found honest love for me in it. Show more Show less

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Stephen Mills
Being attracted to another dude or another girl if your the same gender isn't bad. No more than me having a desire to follow my lusts is bad. It becomes bad when we give up and follow those desires. Someone might ask how do we know that same sex marriage is bad? The easy answer is because you're putting the parts where they don't match. That's the simplicity of it. Girls were meant for guys and guys were meant for girls. Something about those relationships makes us feel complete. Whereas there will always be something missing from a relationship between two people of the same gender. Show more Show less
