Hi I'm Steven

I love music, enjoy learning chinese, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a big family, I am the youngest of 9 kids, I have 6 brothers and 2 sisters. Right now, I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Growing up, my favorite topics in school were music and history. I also participated in other extracurricular activities, such as marching band for a few years. I learned to play several different instruments, including the piano, organ, and other band instruments. I am also an eagle scout, and enjoy learning a variety of subjects. I also am interested in learning foreign languages. Throughout Junior High and High School, I took classes in German, Chinese, and Spanish. I love being with my friends, and maintaining a good sense of humor.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a Latter Day Saint family, but I have also come to believe in the teachings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Being a part of this gospel has helped me live a happier life, inspite of all the normal trials and challenges that we all go through. I do not just rely on what my parents tell me, but I have come to know for myself that God is my Heavenly Father, that He loves me, and that Jesus Christ is my savior and redeemer. My love for them, and for God's other children, has inspired me to come out for 2 years, and share with others about this important message. I know that God lives, and that Jesus Christ died for me, and for each one of us. He is my savior. I know that His gospel has been restored back to the earth, that it provides answers to all of life's questions. I know that through His gospel, I can live with my family forever after we die.

How I live my faith

I am active in developing my relationships with my family, friends, and other members in the area where I live. I strive to follow the principles of the gospel in loving other people, and being concerned for their interests, something that I am learning even more during my missionary service. During my youth I also regularly attended other church activities with other youth, to strengthen each other. I also do the little things, such as praying and reading the scriptures every day, to strengthen my faith in Christ, and to help me find answers to my questions. I also particpated weekly in our church services, including playing the organ to help provide the music for our most sacred part of church. I also enjoy using the gift of music to serve and inspire those around me.
