Hi I'm Stu

Drummer and ice hockey player. More importantly a husband and a Mormon. Part of the Harrogate ward, York England Stake.

About Me

I enjoy ice hockey, football (soccer), and motor racing. I really enjoy travelling with my wife. We go abroad when possible, but also like exploring parts of the UK we've never been to. I work as an IT Engineer full-time, and can play guitar and drums. The latter has seen me tour the country in bands for many years.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to join the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints when I was 28. I believe that the Book Of Mormon is sacred scripture, that Jesus is the Christ, and that we have a living Prophet on the earth today. When I started investigating the Church, I had a great deal of questions, as you might expect. Many of my questions were simply because I'd heard a lot of rumour about Mormons, and wanted further clarification of certain beliefs. I asked the missionaries my questions, as they answered me with personal experiences, and also references from the Book Of Mormon to read. I found the Book Of Mormon to be an inspired book or revelation, and I read from it daily. To me, the Book of Mormon makes logical sense. I believe the Book Of Mormon is true, and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My calling is the Young Men's President. This entails teaching the young men of the Ward (aged 12-18) of their responsibilities of the Priesthood, help prepare them for their adult life, guide them in how to be an asset to the local community, and also how to be of good service to others. We meet on Sundays as part of our Church services, and also on Tuesday nights for activities which are usually pretty entertaining. We go bowling, make model aircraft, produce our own Youtube videos, go hiking, make pizza, etc. Young Men's is open to all young men aged between 12-18, of all faiths or no particular faith. All are welcome to join us. Tuesday activities start at 7.15pm, Sunday services start at 10am. The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints Wetherby Road Harrogate N.Yorkshire HG2 7SA

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Not at all. We as a Church help all those who need it, regardless of their faith. Personally, I've been part of, and have seen numerous projects to help local hospitals, homeless charities, and sometimes just community areas that need a bit of care. Show more Show less
