Hi I'm Steven Hernandez

I grew up many places, had many life changing experiences, And I am a Mormon

About Me

I have a wide range of interests, I'm a very imaginative person but still piratical, i love to read, playing board games, video games, also Dungeons and Dragons, and other role-playing games, i like to see all forms of art whether man made or nature. I lived in many places in America, and had a chance to live in England so i have learned to love the different cultures of people and to embrace my self in it to understand there way. I also love music of all verity, metal to classical. I attended college for a little bit in Culinary, and i like trying new and exotic foods, and know living in New York!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though i was born into the church didn't mean that i believed all my life, i question what i was brought up as, i started to ask questions "what do i believe" "do i really believe that" "why do i have to do these things". even though i was given the answer i didn't really feel it. My Dad was a convert in his late 20's and my Mom has grown up in the church, this brought many different perspective's of the church, when i was 12 years old i began to have question's, and these thoughts are good for they make us look for truth, so i began to search for the answer's, and this lead me into many different trials as all go through in their youth, learning so much and taking in the wealth of knowledge and wisdom the world had to offer, which some wen'rt the best. Over the years questions were answered and i grew in knowledge and wisdom under the loving care of my parents, then it came "do i want to live this kind of life?" i knew what is expected of me if i was to continue living this faith. As many rebellious teenagers i started to rebel, my family, and to the church and all that i have lived to be and what i held so close to my heart, and rebel against God in my heart, that i become numb. On this journey as all others do, a few Angels with me, my two brothers Ruben, and Justin, and my sister Dominene, my seminary teacher, (and a few others) i was 18, and deep my hole when i finally made a choice that changed my life. With the help of my Angels i started to change, i can't say that i wanted to but somehow deep in my heart came a desire to come back in the arms of my savior, it wasn't a walk in a park it took a lot of work, but now i am serving Jesus Christ as a full time missionary in New York City, helping others on their path toward discipleship, i know my savior lives and that he suffered and died for all our sins and i have found my testimony here, and its not a sudden event but its gradual and just enough to see into the darkness to take a few steps forward.

How I live my faith

I don't just passively life my faith but i act on my faith, meaning i live what i believe. Faith to me, is both a belief and acting on that belief, as i try to live up to the high standers of living i seek opportunity's to help uplift another, by making one's day lighter and brighter, simply to be Christ like to all i meet. Its hard for me to talk with other people and to get out of my comfort zone, i don't judge anyone by there appearance or actions, but to actually go up and do something is hard, i find some times my mind goes blank when i am about to talk to them, not that am afraid, but that i don't know anything about them. But it really makes me happy when i finnaly just talk to them, and see someones life becomes lighter, and happy.
