Hi I'm Steve Kunn

I am a husband, a father to 3 beautiful daughters, I help great families manage their wealth and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Calgary, Canada and grew-up in a wonderful family. I have one sister and we are very close. I loved playing a lot of sports as a youth and aside from keeping me out of trouble I also learned commitment and team work. I became very interested in religion as a teenager and investigated several religions but it wasn't until I started to pray that I came into contact with the Mormon church. I was baptized at age 16 and just over 3 years later I began my own mission in the England, London Mission. After my mission I began attending the University of Calgary and that's where I met my wife and there was an instant connection (honest - you can ask her). However, after a few dates she told me that she also wanted to serve a mission for the church. Two and half years later we were married and now we live in the suburbs, drive a minivan and are almost always exhausted raising our three beautiful daughters. I have a very busy career helping families managing their wealth. It's an amazing career and I work with the greatest people. I love sports. I like playing them, I like watching them and I like following them. I love working in my yard and being outside - it's very rewarding.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager I became very interested in where we go after we pass away. I had a hard time believing that life was over at death but yet it seemed everyone had their own opinion on the subject. I looked into several religions to help me answer my question. However, that only created more questions and even less answers. I began to pray that I would find what I was looking for and be guided to the truth. It wasn't long after that on a cold snowy Saturday afternoon in March that two missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints knocked on my door. I let them in mainly because they looked cold. We visited for a while, they gave me a copy of the Book of Mormon and said they would call me. It took a couple of weeks before we could meet again - mainly because I didn't fully realize that they were an answer to my prayers. Two months after my first visit with the missionaries I was baptized. It felt so wonderful. Now nearly 20 years later I feel so blessed to have the good news that the teachings of Jesus Christ provide. I now know exactly where I'm going but I also know where I came from and what my purpose is. This knowledge gives me a sense of peace and calm.

How I live my faith

With a busy little family and a busy career it feels like I have almost no extra time for anything else. However, being Mormon provides many wonderful opportunities to serve others. I have had opportunities to work with the youth and my peers whether teaching them a lesson on Sunday or preparing an activity for over 250 teenagers. I really like that my assignments change periodically and that my talents are used by my Bishop and Heavenly Father. Currently I work with the missionaries to help the people they teach. It's so wonderful to be around the full-time missionaries - they add so much excitement and always have a great spirit with them.
