Hi I'm Hyrum Stephen

I grew up in Omaha Nebraska. I love soccer, my family, and my guitar. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I've played soccer all my life. I've been coaching soccer for the last 8 years of my life. It's really The Beautiful Game. I also live for music. I live every moment of my life with music and between playing the piano, singing, or playing my guitar, it keeps me busy. Right now I am preparing to serve a two year mission for my church. I'll be serving in San Diego speaking Spanish. After that I am going off to college to pursue a degree in Literature.

Why I am a Mormon

My family was Mormon and I grew up learning about the gospel. However, when I turned 8 my father told me that it was totally my choice to join the church. I told him that I wanted to join and he said that I couldn't join unless I had prayed about it and come to the decision for myself. This has set the pattern for my spiritual learning all of my life.

How I live my faith

I have been a youth leader in my time as a youth. After I turned 18 I left the youth program and have since accepted a calling teaching the 6 year old primary class. I love teaching those little kids because it reminds me to live the simple truths of the gospel. I home teach with my dad over a few families and that's amazing too. The gospel is a huge part of my life and it brings me lots of joy.
