Hi I'm Stephen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, serving in the Oslo Norway Mission. I grew up in Hawaii, and have lived in Colorado and Utah. I love speaking Norwegian and living in the most beautiful country in the world! I believe we can always find the good in each and everyday, and that's how I've always tried to live. I love to write, especially middle grade fiction and fantasy. Stories that are imaginative, and enjoyable, but also teach positive values for young readers. With the kind of media we live with today, it has never been more important to have positive stories that promote good values.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? Because of the way it makes me feel. No amount of knowledge of the Church or the Gospel can compare to the feeling of peace and happiness I feel each and every day as I live and love in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The feelings I receive tells me that it is true. As I learn and grow and live as a Mormon, learning more about the Church, family, my Savior and his Plan for me, I know it is true. I feel it, and so I live it! And I love it!

How I live my faith

I've chosen to serve others as a full-time missionary for the church. There is nothing more rewarding than service. Charity is the pure love of Jesus Christ. I live my faith everyday as I endeavor to achieve love like the Savior has for all of us.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

As a missionary i can testify with a resounding, cheerful NO! No, mormons do not only help other Mormons. In fact, a vast majority of our service and efforts is to bless, uplift, and help others who are not members of our faith. Through various programs we do all we can to give donations and offerings which help those who are in need. It is also taught in the Book of Mormon, as well as by all the modern day Prophets how important service is. We are taught to love our neighbors. To give of our selves to those who are in need. Mormons love service, it fills us with happiness, and brings us closer to Jesus Christ. We love all of our brothers and sisters, and will always be willing to do all we can to help them, Mormon or not. Show more Show less
