Hi I'm Steven

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a beautiful wife three children and a great dog! I love running and reading, so audiobooks are the best. I went to school at BYU for Business/Finance. My favorite book is Ender's game and my favorite movie is The Lord of the Rings and it happens to be the first date my wife and I went on! 23 months later I convinced her I was a good choice:)

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school I chose to read the Book of Mormon from start to finish. When I read 1st Nephi 11:21-23 - I was struck with the love of God. From there on I tried to serve others more and found that when I served, I was happy. I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost sustain me throughout my life and trials and am so grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My wife and I were married, or 'sealed' as we say, in the Spokane Temple. The best moment and decision in my life. Every day since we pray together everyday and now with our children and try to teach them to be nice and think of others. My wife teaches the 9 and 10 year olds from the scriptures every other Sunday and I help set appointments for our Bishop, what some might refer to as a pastor. One of my favorite parts of the Gospel is General Conference in April and October. It's when the Prophet and the Apostles speak to us for two days. It always lifts me up and recharges me for the next 6 months.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

I feel more peaceful everyday that I read the Book of Mormon. It helps me understand my relationship to God and the power of covenants. Show more Show less
