Hi I'm Steven Reaves

I grew up in Seattle. I love Crossfit, Skiing and Snowboarding, along with any thing adventurous. The best part is, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I graduated high school in 2013 and am now serving a full time mission in Tempe, Arizona. When I return home from my mission I plan to start college, working on degree to become a Nutritionist . I became interested in health and nutrition when i started participating in Crossfit in 2011. I started doing Crossfit in high school when i was told it would better prepare my for my upcoming wrestling season (which it did). I've had to take a small break from this hobby and others, to serve a mission. When i return from my mission in the summer of 2015 I plan to get right back in a Crossfit gym to start training for the Reebok Crossfit Games. Besides Crossfit, In the winter I enjoy Skiing and Snowboarding with family and friends along with just loving life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the church. As I got older I didn't see how the church helped me in my life or even if there was a God out there, because of some of the trials I had in my life. One day a made a promise to a close friend, to try and go on a mission even though I had no desire to serve a mission. As i prepared for a mission i felt nothing and thought I was wasting mine and others time. For the first couple weeks of my mission was very hard, because I was teaching something I didn't believe in myself. But one day someone questioned my tiny testimony that I was trying to grow. From that moment, my world changed. I realized that I knew for my self that what I was teaching was true and i could not deny it any longer. I was able to go to God in prayer and ask for forgiveness. Through the Holy Ghost, I was able to have a knowledge that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I was forgiven.

How I live my faith

I'm on a mission which is a great experience and faith builder. I know that if you spend a half hour a day studying the scripture you will gain a better knowledge of those things. Along with being able to have any questions you have will be answered through studying the words of the Lord.

Are Mormons Christians?

Steven Reaves
Yes, Mormons are Christians. If you look in the official title of the church Its says " The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" we are followers of Christ which would make us Christian. Show more Show less
