Hi I'm Stephen Reeves

I'm a musician, a karate kid, I love to cook/bake, I LOVE people, and I'm a mormon. =)

About Me

I'm the crazy kinda kid that loves to do random fun stuff like dive out of an airplane, play electric guitar in a band all night, skateboard, TaiKwonDo, Brazillian Jiujitsu, and knit fluffy pink sweaters. (Jk about that last part. Lol.) I'm a super avid gamer too, which I'm most proud of. =) My parents are divorced, and I never really got to know my dad, and because of that, I had to find a way to fill my time. That's how I gained so many tallents. I was the second oldest of 4 boys, but even though I was the second oldest, I was the "Dad" of the group. Things were kinda rough with our situation at times, because madre had to work crazy hours, and we were left to fend for ourselves a lot of the time... But you gotta do whatcha gotta do. I respect my mom a lot, and I appreciate her faith, because it helped me out of a really tough spot.

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't a very active mormon, but I still held to most of my standards and didn't do anything crazy so I was always the designated driver. Lol. But eventually, we found ourselves in a rut... I was gunna have to be payin for something the rest of my life. I owe a lot to my madre because she's the one that's been through thick and thin for me, and if it wasn't for her suggestion and her faith, I wouldn't be where I'm at now. She told me to pray and ask Heavenly Father to help me with my big problem. I was always the rebellious type, so I was like whatever... But a few weeks later, I broke down and decided I didn't have anything to loose. I prayed and asked for Heavenly Father's help. I made him a deal (which I guess you should never do. Lol.) where if he were to pull me out of my problem, I would turn everything around. And he did!!! The only thing I got was a fine for $500. My testimony grew like crazy from that experience, and I totally feel like things have never been better since I've started into the mormon church again. The church of Jesus christ of latter day saints wasn't the first church I went to after my experience though... I checked out a ton of others. But in the end I realized that the mormon church is the only church to be in.

How I live my faith

I live my faith because it strengthens me, and because I owe it to God. He's pulled me out of so much, and he's given me a ton of tallents to live with. I live my faith through going to church, reading the scriptures, and praying everyday. I've totally come to realize that the commandments aren't a set of rules that we are obligated to follow... They're a life style that we should want to follow. Once we want to follow the commandments in stead of have to follow the commandments, that's when we're ready for Heaven.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Stephen Reeves
Joseph Smith was a Legend... He died for something he knew was true. He was a Prophet, a husband, a Father, and eventually he was a martyr. I know he was a true prophet for two reasons: 1. "By their fruits ye shall know them" He worked a ton of miracles, and did a lot of great things! No one else in the world has ever claimed to have been called of God to be a prophet, and succeeded unless they were actually called of God to be a prophet. 2. Joseph Smith had a family that he loved so much. And when Joseph Smith knew he was going to die when he was on his way to carthadge jail, (" I'm going like a lamb to the slaughter" -Joseph Smith history) he could've totally just taken off with his family. That's what I would've done!!! But he stayed strong, and went through that because he knew that's what was necesary. No liar would go and die for something that was fake when they had so much to live for. That's the thing that hits me the hardest... Show more Show less
