Hi I'm Steven Brower

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Seattle, WA and moved to Arlington, WA when I was about 4 years old. I was baptized on July 11, 2003. I enjoy playing soccer and basketball, and being active. I also like photography and music. I attended EVCC as a part of the Running Start program, which allowed to earn my 2 year degree out of high school. I am currently serving an LDS mission in Dallas, Texas as a Spanish speaking missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I like how family centered the gospel is. I also like how this gospel is all about happiness. We aren't meant to have misery, we are here to be happy and learn.

How I live my faith

I was born into the church, so I grew up using my parents testimony to help me. Now as I get ready to leave on a mission, I am starting to find parts of my testimony through reading the scriptures. The first time that I felt the spirit very strongly was when I was reading John chapter 15. This chapter helped the spirit to bear witness to me that these things are true and that everything will be okay. My favorite part of this chapter is in verses 12-16. It reads, "This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what the lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the father in my name, he may give it you." I know that we are friends with Jesus and that we have been chosen to bring forth fruit. He wants us to receive blessings, but we have to be righteous in order to receive them.
