Hi I'm Steven

I live in Queensland. I'm a family man. I'm a school teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The most important thing to me is my family. I love my wife and children and feel privileged to share my life with them. We do lots of things together. Discussions at the dinner table, working around the house together and family outings are all things I enjoy. I am a primary school teacher. It is a challenging but rewarding career and one which I enjoy. The growth I see and the interactions I have with the students I teach are certainly worth the time and effort. Being a Mormon allows me to give service to others in the church. I am often engaged in various activities that allow me to serve and I am grateful for that. In my spare time between, family, work and church commitments, I like to do odd jobs around the house, spend time on my iPad and ride my motorbike.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were Mormons when I was born. I grew up being taught the principles and ideals of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Those principles always made sense to me because they seemed like guides that would allow me to achieve my potential and keep me away from things that could drag me down in life. I guess in my earlier years, I appreciated the teachings of the church because it gave me a blue print for how to live my life. In my later teenage years, I began to reflect on the Master of this blue print, Jesus Christ. I have never doubted a Savior. I have never doubted his role in an eternal plan for happiness for me. It means so much more to me now. I am eager to share what I know with my children. I know it will bring happiness and peace into their lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the example of the Saviour. I'll be the first to admit I'm a long way from perfect. My family means so much to me. Living my faith starts within the walls of my own home. I try my best to be a good husband and father. I live my faith in my workplace by doing an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. I am ethical in all my professional dealings and strive to develop relationships with others that are positive and uplifting. I live my faith by serving others in the church to the best of my ability. The opportunities come in many and varied ways but in each demonstration of my beliefs, I know I am richly blessed and would like to think those around me feel something of the joy I have found as a member of the church and a follower of Christ.
