Hi I'm Steve Gibbons

I'm a Mormon. I am an attorney, a sailor, a cyclist and a rock climber.

About Me

I love to sail and have raced both locally and in international competition. We sail as a family, and have wonderful memories of sailing to Vancouver Island, the San Juan Islands, the Gulf Islands, and on one memorable occasion, in the British Virgin Islands. During the summers, I participate in road cycling events, such as the "RAMROD" (Ride Around Mount Rainier in a Day), the "STP" (Seattle to Portland) and a "Century" (100 mile sponsored road event) or two. When I still had knees that could take the punishment, I loved mountaineering, and have climbed many of the mountains in the Olympics and the Cascade Mountains. I have reached the summit of Mount Rainier four times. Now, I usually limit myself to rock climbing, where technique and finesse can compensate somewhat for the ravages of age. While I have always enjoyed the out-of-doors, I also genuinely enjoy my work as a trial lawyer and counselor at law. My practice has been primarily Admiralty and Maritime cases, which have taken me nearly all over the world and have provided opportunities to meet and to work with people from many cultures. I truly love what I do (and probably would do it as an avocation were it not my vocation).

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is precious to me. By striving to live the teachings of our Lord and Savior, my life has been richly blessed. I have experienced first-hand the sweet ministering of the Holy Spirit and the power of God to work miracles. I know that God lives, that He hears and answers our prayers and that He loves us all, unconditionally. I am grateful for Jesus Christ, for His incomprehensible sacrifice for all mankind, without which none of us would be saved.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by accepting opportunities to serve in my congregation and in the community, whether the assignment be small or whether it involve greater sacrifice and commitment. I believe we serve God when we let ourselves be instruments in his hands, blessing the lives of others whenever possible. My life has been blessed by the dedicated service of others. My sincere desire is to follow the example of Christ by being of service to those whom He places in my path, and if possible, to help those who seek Him to find Him.
