Hi I'm Steve

I'm a husband and father. I am a Physical Therapist. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a Physical Therapist by profession and find fulfillment in helping people overcome injuries and return to the activities they enjoy. I am also part of a disaster response team that responds to major disasters or public health emergencies. More importantly I am a husband a Dad. My hobbies include running, camping, hiking and watching movies as a family.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was one year old and so I grew up attending the "Mormon" Church. I grew up in many different locations throughout the United States and attended many different wards and branches (congregations) both large and small. Moving as frequently as I did I never developed many close friendships except with my immediate family. I will never forget attending the temple with my family when I was 10 years old and kneeling across an alter to be sealed together as a family for eternity. The deep feeling of peace I felt and the assurance that the blessings pronounced were indeed real and not just a ceremony are my first recollections of knowing for myself that the principles taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are true. I have had many further witnesses through my own personal experiences, many of them are too personal to share publicly, that God is real and that He takes a very personal interest in our lives. I know that the Book of Mormon is another Testament or witness of Jesus Christ and that God has once again called spokesmen or Prophets to guide us these difficult times. I know that by following the counsel of these prophets we will find the peace that Christ promised his disciples.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live my life the way the Savior teaches us to live. I commute to work and spend time during the commute studying and pondering the Savior's words in the scriptures. As a family we make it a priority to have family meals together, daily prayer and scripture study. We find this practice draws us closer as a family and provides God's direction to us as we go through our busy days. gives us a great time to bond and get to know each other better. In our local congregation I serve as a liaison between the full time missionaries and the local members of our congregation. This provides me opportunity to frequently meet new people and help them feel comfortable as they visit our meetinghouse for the first time. I also help them get to know other members of our congregation and answer questions they may have. I have organized two service projects in the last two years to clean up the yards of elderly and disabled members of our community. It is nice to drive by those homes and see what a difference we were able to make in the appearance of our community.
