Hi I'm Steven Kawika Gilbert

I serve in the Texas Houston East Mission. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My Mom and Dad are both faithful members of the church and very good parents, I have a younger brother and sister, two older sisters, and a brother in-law. My siblings are my very best friends in the whole world and I love my family more than I could say, we have many struggles and trials like other families still but I know that my family will be there for me no matter what bad things happen in my life. I go to college at BYUI and I am studying Financial Economics. I am currently serving a mission, in the Texas Houston East Mission (T.H.E. Mission) and loving it. I could never express in words what my mission has done for my life already.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. This church makes complete sense to me, there aren't any curve balls, unexpected twists, or secrets. I am able to be myself. Through the church I can learn the correct and full gospel taught by Jesus Christ, and when I pray I know it is all true. If a church like this produces only good, fun, loving, charitable, and kind people then how could it ever be bad. I will stay Mormon for the rest of my life and I hope to bring others to this great and true gospel whenever I am able!

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church and I have made the decision to continue on that path and I have chosen to teach the gospel that Jesus Christ himself taught, I have chosen to serve a mission. I choose to exercise my faith in this way because all the best parts about my character comes from this Gospel and I want to share it with everyone I meet. I try my best to follow the guidance of the prophet, and pray daily and read the scriptures daily. Doing these simple tasks have strengthened my faith in Christ and proved a significant difference in my life. I find my days happier, I am able to show more patience towards those around me, I smile much more, and I feel closer to my savior Jesus Christ. There aren't a lot of things I am perfect at doing, but two things I am perfect at doing are trying and not giving up.
