Hi I'm Austin Stephan

I'm just your typical ginger who loves to play all sports and his guitar. I love Christ and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have been born and raised in good ol' Happy Valley in Utah. I have always loved to play sports my whole life. I love to play basketball, tennis, and soccer. I am in love with watching professional basketball. I would watch it every single day if I could. My favorite is the Jazz. They will most likely win the next 100 NBA championships. I also love to play my guitar and to just chill with my friends. During the winter I am always up in the mountains snowboarding and just living in the snow. Right now I am in England helping families be together forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this it makes me happy. It gives me hope for myself, my family, and my friends for the future in this troubled world. I am a Mormon because I have felt the spirit and had it testify to me that this is the true church. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon to its fullest. When I read the Book of Mormon there is no doubt in my mind that it is true and that it gives me guidance to my own life. Without this book in my life I would have no purpose. I would just be gliding through life with no hope for the future and with no help on how I should act. I believe that this book is another testament of Jesus Christ. Finally I believe that there is a Heavenly Father and if we live righteously we can live again with him. I know that Jesus Christ, my brother, suffered for my sins so I can be forgiven. I am eternally grateful for his sacrifice and live my live through his example. My testimony means everything to me. Without it I would be lost. I am so grateful for the knowledge that I already have and the knowledge that I will learn thought my life.

How I live my faith

There are many things that I do to live my faith. Some of the things I do is honor the promises I made with my Heavenly Father when I was baptized. One promise I made with him was to stand at a witness at all times and all places. I am not afraid to share what I believe in with every person I meet. I am so happy being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I want everyone else in the world to have this same happiness.
