Hi I'm Steve

I am a Husband, Father, CFO and like to paint, garden, and work with wood, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy good barbeque (store bought BBQ sauce is not even on the radar), working with wood, oil painting landscapes (I told my wife we can’t afford great art so I took up oil painting - still working on the great art part), gardening, and the beauties of the world around us. I am married to a wonderful loving Wife, am a Father, Grandfather, Chief Financial Officer, cancer survivor, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Some people have asked why I am a Mormon, I answer why not. It has brought me peace, joy, and a foundation for life that gives meaning to everything I do. The guidelines it provides for living brings safety and security from many of life’s most challenging and vexing issues. Through the loving atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ I can find forgiveness for my shortcomings, strength to overcome obstacles, and hope for the future. I may not understand all that happens in my life or to the lives of people around me, but I do know with certainty that these events will ultimately work for our good if we let a loving Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ guide and care for us through the good times and bad.

How I live my faith

As children of a common God I think we have an innate need to love and be loved. My faith fills this need by providing an opportunity to serve my family, others within my Church, the community at large, and, as an outgrowth of this service, our God. In my home my faith gives me a moral standard for living that provides a foundation to listen, guide, and love my wife and children and help them find peace and joy as they seek their own path through life. As a Minister in our faith I am often reaching out and helping others bring their lives more in line with Christ’s teachings and finding hope, strength, and encouragement for the future. In our community I enjoy visiting the elderly, widows, and infirmed at convalescent center near us, and bringing a listening ear and friendly smile. My faith shapes me and the world around me in wonderful ways, which brings light, comfort, and hope for the future to me and those with whom I interact.
