Hi I'm Stephen

I've grown up in the country in Utah. I have 7 brothers and sisters, I love all types of sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've played tennis my whole life and ran cross country. I love the out doors (camping, four wheeling, rock climbing.) I live on a farm and have over 300 beef cows, I've always an adventure out on the farm and it keeps me pretty busy. I been raise in the LDS church my whole life and am going on a Mission to Mexico City in about a week which is going to be awesome!!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger, I was a Mormon because my Mom and Dad are they brought me to church every Sunday and that's just how I've been raised. But when I was about 14-15 I kind of strayed away did my own stuff experienced the world and did basically whatever I wanted to do, but I never really felt good about what I did. About a year ago I decided I should kick myself into the right gear and get ready to go on a Mission and holy cow stopping the sins I was doing and getting ready to go was the hardest thing ever.. ever! it was so frustrating I struggled and struggled for months. But what actually changed in my life to stop sinning was to actually change my heart and grow toward the savior and it just didn't happen over night like I thought it was but it was praying, reading the scriptures, reading good books. Just slowly over time drowning out the evil inside me and always looking toward God in all I did. I can Honestly say that living the Gospel is not hard it's easy it makes you happy and you feeling like you have control of your mind, body and destiny when you don't live the Gospel life is just crappy!! I don't recommend it! :) but there is always Hope in everything Christ loves you and will always love you know how much you mess up and it's just up to you to put your pride aside and let him help you, and Christ will help you more than you can Imagine.

How I live my faith

I've always grown up in the LDS church my parents have always be really active so I've always gone to church and other youth activities my whole life which has been really fun. All my life I've always tried talking with people about my faith and learn more about their faith I think it's really exciting! I've been a leader of my youth group when I was 12-14, and 15-16 I grew a lot spiritually learned how to lead people which I know has helped me so far in life and will continue to help me throughout my life. I did Boy Scouts basically my whole life and I was in various positions to lead and to learn was really fun and I finished Scouts with receiving my Eagle which was actually extremely difficult but I did it! I've been a home teacher since I've been 14 and visited various families in my ward. It's been really fun journey so far!
