Hi I'm Shane Stewart

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost I am a child of my Heavenly Father. Knowing this helps guide my life in every way. I am a husband and father. I am married to (here come the clichés) the love of my life and my best friend. I find peace and joy knowing that I am married to this wonderful woman for eternity. I am father to two fine young teenage boys and two beautiful, sweet daughters. I make my living helping others with their finances as a Certified Financial Planner ®. I enjoy being with my family. I am the oldest child of two great parents and I have 4 brothers and 1 sister. I love sports and recreation. I particularly like to snowboard, ski, surf, hike and camp. I like to try to stay physically fit.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints but the reason that I am a Mormon is that I have done a great deal of soul searching. This started as a teenager and continues today. What I have found is that here I have found the truth. The gospel of Jesus Christ is restored on the earth. I feel blessed to have found it because I have a happy life when I follow the teachings and precepts of "mormonism" (which is simply the gospel of Jesus). Knowing that I have a Heavenly Father and that he loves me influences my actions greatly. I understand that we are all God's children and this helps me to govern my actions. I try to remember this and always act accordingly. And this is the point of the gospel of Jesus Christ. If I strive to stay on the path and follow Him and repent when I make mistakes He will bless and guide me. I know this is true because I have lived and currently live this daily.

How I live my faith

I try to do what is right. I try to serve others. I love to serve those around me and consider all who reside in our area as my friends regardless of whether they are members of our faith our not. I am blessed to be surrounded by such good friends and neighbors. I live the code of health often referred to as the Word of Wisdom. I know that this has helped me spiritually and physically.
