Hi I'm Stephen Hart

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I am currently serving in the Michigan Detroit mission and I am loving every minute of it!

About Me

My name is Stephen and I have grown up going to church my whole life but recently I have grown to love the gospel and gained a greater testimony of its truthfulness by reading and studying the Book of Mormon and Preach my Gospel. I am currently serving in the Michigan Detroit mission and it has already been a wonderful blessing to my life! After a year of putting my life on the line in the warzone of Detroit and Yac-Town my life has been changed forever! Ive been "Made in Detroit"! I love it here and I love seeing and hearing everybody's life stories and how different we all are, but at the same time we are all Children of a loving Heavenly Father and we can all relate with our faith in Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father! I am a die hard University of Utah fan and I strongly despise the byu cougars... yuck! I love all sports especially football, basketball, golf, and ping pong and any other athletic event you put in my path! I am pretty much good at everything and am up to any challenge! Humility is one of my strongest attributes!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i have searched the scriptures diligently and have come to know my Father in Heaven on a personal level! I know Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father can truly be apart of everyones life if through agency they so choose to come unto them! The Church brings peace and happiness, and a sense of hope into my life and I know that it is the only true church upon the earth today! I love how the gospel changes lives and how it can better peoples relationships with, God, Heavenly Father, the Holy Ghost, and families!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others and missionary work. I am always trying to better other peoples life and serve others as Christ has served myself and everybody! I am currently on a mission and I am spreading the gospel to everyone who is ready and willing to hear and learn about the truth!

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Stephen Hart
Our Heavenly Father has blessed us here on earth with families in order for us to grow and develop our temporal and spiritual well-beings! Some of our greatest joys in life come through our families and if we make the proper covenants in a Temple of God then we can experience these joys for eternity! Families can be sealed together forever by the proper authority, one day I will take my wife through the temple to married for all time and eternity and what comfort and joy that brings to me knowing that death will not split my family apart! I am so happy we can all experience the joy and true happiness of having an eternal family! Show more Show less

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Stephen Hart
Yes it is true that Jesus visited the Ancient Americas after his death and resurrection, the Book of Mormon testifies of these occurrences! The Bible tell us that there are other "sheep of the fold that Jesus has not yet visited" we cant be positive that he is referring to the people in the ancient Americas, but our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love all of their children so it makes sense that they would make everyone aware of their existence, not just the people in Jerusalem! Jesus did visit the Americas and 3Nephi Chapter 11 in the Book of Mormon testifies of this! Show more Show less
