Hi I'm Stephen Carlson

I've lived in Germany for about half my life. I've been called to serve in the California Long Beach Mission.

About Me

I've been an Air Force Brat all my life. Living in places like Idaho, Montana, Utah, Ohio, Alabama, and moving back and forth to Germany 3 times through out my life. I attended 1 semester at BYU-I and it was awesome. I'm sure I will be attending there in 2015 when i return from my mission in Long Beach. I love providing service for others when ever I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. Growing up in the church doesn't mean that you don't get a confirmation of the truthfulness of this gospel. I know that my full conversion happened when I was 16 and I got down on my knees and asked if it was true. I felt an overwhelming feeling of joy and i knew that this gospel is true. I can't wait to go out into the mission field, and share the gospel with people who don't have it in there lives so that they can feel the happiness and joy that i feel everyday. I love the power of prayer and my opportunity to have communication with our Heavenly Father. I know that Joseph Smith didn't write the Book of Mormon but that he translated the plates. I love this church. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I keep the commandments
