Hi I'm Stetson

I have been born and raised in Idaho. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm 20 years old, currently going to college, and working selling cell phones for Verizon wireless. Some of my favorite things to do include bowling, basketball, wake boarding and snowmobiling.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, so I have had the blessing of having the gospel teachings throughout my whole life. It was hard sometimes for me not to take it for granted. But from living on my own, and being independent from my family, I had the choice to continue to further my knowledge in the gospel, or fall away. After noticing the consequences of not participating in my ward, I knew I needed to keep my savior close, and continue to let my testimony grow. I am great full for the guidance I have in my life that comes from the gospel.

How I live my faith

I attend a singles ward in the same city I go to school. The age group in my ward is basically 18 to 25. So i get to be with people in my age group. I currently have multiple callings: sacrament coordinator, and as a home teacher. As a home teacher I go around with a partner from my ward and share a brief message about the gospel to a few members which were assigned to us, and see if we can help them out in any way.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

We don't drink coffee, tea, alcohol, use tobacco or illegal drugs because as part of our religion, we are advised to keep our bodies healthy. Part of that requires us to stay away from certain things that are harmful to our bodies .Over time, these have been proven to be hard on our bodies. Sometimes I don't know exactly why we are asked to to things, like stay away from certain foods and beverages, but I do know that the advice came from god. And that's good enough for me Show more Show less
