Hi I'm Steve

I grew up close to Seattle. I love to watch and play sports. I'm a teacher and I love spending time with my family.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school Spanish teacher. I also coach basketball and track. I've studied Spanish in Spain, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru, Chile, and Argentina. I LOVE speaking Spanish and sharing the hispanic culture and traditions with my students--especially the music. I love playing basketball or ultimate frisbee on Saturday mornings with my friends. I also enjoy juggling--I've been to several juggling festivals. My favorite thing, however, is spending time with my wife and two kids. There is nothing more fulfilling than spending time with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Mormon and I've always felt good about being a member of the church. Our church makes some amazing claims (for example--that Jesus Christ has re-established his church again on the earth). So many things have happened in the last 190+ years. The missionaries (in the white shirt and ties who you've probably seen) spend all their time trying to share the message of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. The best thing is that anyone can know the things they share are true by asking God and through the power of the Holy Ghost. I'm so grateful for the peace and guidance my church membership provides me. It helps me in every aspect of my life. I am thoroughly convinced that life's greatest joy comes from living the Gospel of Jesus Christ and being a member of His church.

How I live my faith

My faith affects every aspect of my life. It's amazing to learn more about Jesus Christ and his teachings-it really enriches my life. I really try to follow Christ's teachings in everything I do. Daily prayer and scripture study help me out a lot (I can tell big difference when I forget to do them). Going to church every Sunday really recharges me spiritually and helps me remember what is most important. We have wonderful people to interact and learn from at church as well as assignments to visit specific families monthly and share a message with them.
