Hi I'm Steven

I enjoy landscaping. I love playing music and sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Yorba Linda, California as the youngest child of 4. I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2012 in Landscape Management and am now working for a landscaping company in Bountiful, Utah. I thoroughly enjoy working with plants, it's a recent hobby I've discovered in the past few years. I love playing sports and being a sports fan; I also enjoy music in playing the trumpet and piano. I recently married my wife about 5 months ago and enjoy living in Provo, near our family and friends. I served a mission in Salta, Argentina, where many of the most treasured moments of my life were shared.

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in part due to my parents and family. I have been blessed to be surrounded by the church since I was born and have enjoyed the comfort, peace, and safety that has come through my slow and steady following of the commandments. There wasn't a single defining moment in my life that really brought me to the church or helped me to know that this is the right thing to do. Rather, because I have lived the teachings of the church all my life, it has been an obvious choice for me to always live my life this way. When I think of what my life would be like without the church, I think of how worldly and without purpose it would be. I am forever grateful of being a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I enjoy reading the scriptures daily and other inspiring messages found on the church's website lds.org. Listening and obeying the words of the leaders of the church brings much peace and comfort to my life. I always plan my time accordingly to listen to them every first weekend of April and October, when we have General Conference. Saying prayers throughout very day helps keep m humble and reliant on my Heavenly Father, as there are many things I can not do without his help. I always enjoy attending church every Sunday where I can renew my promise to keep the commandments that our Savior Jesus Christ has given us. At church there are always lessons and messages that enlighten my mind and keep me motivated to continue being a follower of Christ.
