Hi I'm Steven Eckersley

I'm a Mormon

About Me

So I'm the youngest of four kids. I was born in Saipan where my fun/outgoing birth mother and sisters currently live. My older brother was adopted by another family and lives in Hawaii, lucky him. I was adopted by my awesome mom, dad and sister and moved to Houston Texas and lived there for ten years. After that, we moved to Colorado and have been there till I got called to serve in the San Bernardino mission which got changed to the Rancho Cucamonga mission a couple days after arriving. California is a crazy place but I love it and the people that we get to meet. I love to swim, dive, long-board, play any kind of sport, make music and hang out with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the feeling that I get when going to church and when I'm around others that have the same standards as me. The gospel has helped me feel safe and keep myself spiritually fit. I know that without the atonement I would not be where I am right now. I'm so thankful for how forgiving and open the Lord is to everybody. I'm thankful that we are all given chances and choices throughout our lives. I know that through our trials that our faith can grow. I enjoy having the opportunity to help others learn more about the gospel and how it can help them in their own lives. The gospel is just the way i live and has been a really good foundation and something that i can turn to when I feel like there's nobody else to turn to.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a mission and helping others come closer to Christ.
