Hi I'm Steve

I grew up in Arizona and still live there. I run a landscape company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love doing anything outdoors, such as hiking and camping. I enjoy building things and working outside with my hands. I have 3 beautiful children and a wonderful wife. I have been married for 7 years. I am self employed and run a small landscape company.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church meaning that my parents were already members when I was born. There did come a time in my life that I had to find out for myself if this was the church for me. I continue to be a mormon beacause of the teachings. I love how the church focuses on the family being a central role in God's plan for all of us. There is no better feeling than knowing that I can live with my family forever, even after this life. I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored just as he organized it when we lived on the earth with prophets and apostles. I know that God loves each of his children and we can have a personal relationship with him through worship and prayer.

How I live my faith

I have a calling in the church which is something most members have. I work with the youth, more in particular I work with the 14 and 15 year old young men. This includes teaching them on Sundays and having activities with them throughout the week. Many activities include service projects such as help widowed women with yard work. Other activities might be playing sports, or learning new skills like simple automotive repair. We do a lot of what we call outings which include camping and a lot of hiking adventures. I am blessed to be able to work with these young men and watch them grow in the gospel and make correct choices in a world that is constantly trying to bring them down.

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are definately Christians. The official name of the church is The "Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter day Saints". The cover of the Book of Mormon reads "The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ". I believe that being a Christian means have a firm belief that Jesus Christ is our savior and redeemer. That there is no other way for a person to return and live with Heavenly Father than through our Lord Jesus Christ. I am thankful for his willingness to come here and live a perfect life and take upon him all of the sins of the world and die for us. Show more Show less
