Hi I'm Stephen Burkholz

I'm Stephen, I'm a Missionary for the LDS Church, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm Stephen Burkholz, I come from a wonderful family of 4 kids. I love spending time with them and seeing the gospel bring our family closer together. I love spending time outdoors, fishing, camping, golfing ext. I'm blessed to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints in the Philadelphia Pennsylvania mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the Lord has given me so much in my life. I love him so much for that. Its through the Mormon Church that I'm able to see the great blessings that come to me. There is more to the life then earth. Our Heavenly Father wants us to return and live with him again, but we need to show that we are worth of that by keeping his commandments. I love this gospel and I want all to here his message, that is why I'm serving the lord on a 2 year mission. Its only through the Restored Gospel that this is able to happen. I know it to be true because i have prayed and asked what i should do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through The Gospel of Christ, restablished on the earth. By Praying to my Heavenly Father, and always seeking guidance through the good and bad times in life. It is through the hard times in life when we need our Savior the most! but its through the Good times that he expects us to keep working the hardest. I live my faith by keeping the commandments God has given his children.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Stephen Burkholz
Through following Christ and his teachings. In the back of the Bible in the BD (Bible Dictionary) if you look under prayer it says, "We pray in Christ's name when our mind is the mind of Christ, and our wishes the wishes of Christ." the way I see it, is that we pray to our Heavenly Father not only through kneeling and speeking with him, But also through our actions. We want those actions to be good in the Sight of God. Show more Show less
