Hi I'm Steven Peterson

I'm a husband and father of nine. I'm a dentist. I'm a hunter who has been to Africa and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm over 60 and my wife and I are nearly "empty nesters." I've practiced dentistry for over 30 years. It has been a wonderful profession. I have been in Scouting as an adult since 1978 continuously. My sons are all Eagle Scouts and I am Silver Beaver. It has been a joy to serve and I'm thankful for a wonderful wife who has let me. I'm an avid hunter and even hunted successfully for Cape Buffalo in Zimbabwe.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I believe with all my heart it is the true way, I am a Mormon. I have tested this religion in every circumstance in my life including raising 9 great children, 18 grandchildren and counting, and every trial, tragedy, and triumph I have been given. It is true. God the Father lives. Jesus is our Savior and brother. Being a Mormon is not something I belong to. It is who and what I am. Living Christianity!

How I live my faith

I don't hunt on Sunday. I go to church every Sunday. I pray and read the scriptures every day, and try my best to love God and love my fellow man. I enjoy serving in the Church and have served in many positions over the years including Scoutmaster in almost every place I've ever lived. I'm not good at some things but I know with God's assistance I can help in any way I am asked.
