Hi I'm Stephen Randolph

Though I have no story to share, my life as a Mormon has been wonderful. The gospel has made it better than I ever could have.

About Me

Ever since I was very young, I've enjoyed making others smile. I want to someday improve the lives of many people around the world. I want to use what I've been blessed with in a way that will benefit others. Also, I love to do new things and find new hobbies and interests. I've been a dancer, football player, tennis player, wrestler, scuba diver, band member, and many other things. And when I do something, I work hard to get better at it. I always want to improve myself in one way or another. Though I'm still young, I expect a lot from myself. I work hard and do all I can to reach my goals. I strive to be better than I was the day before. I don't want to waste a single day on this earth. Throughout my years at school, I've tried to find where I belong. I've been a jock, a prep, a nerd, and an outcast. However, I've learned that people can't be categorized in just one group. So I decided to make as many friends as possible while keeping several very close friends. I value friendship and the memories that I make with those friends.

Why I am a Mormon

The most important reason for me becoming a Mormon is because this gospel and Church has brought me such great joy in my life. I've also noticed the same from all the members that I care for. It has brought me and those I care about happiness, and I wish to share the same happiness with as many people as I can. I've received many witnesses-both physical and spiritual-that this church is true. I speak with the most sincerity I can while typing when I say this gospel is without a doubt in my mind the truth that has been lost and restored. Because I've received the witnesses that I have of this fact, I stay with this church.

How I live my faith

Though I don't participate in many group service opportunities, I frequently help individuals whenever I notice someone in need. It's the frequent but small acts of service that can make a huge difference in both my life and in the lives of many others. It shows that I can be faithful at every moment, whether I expect it or not. I also try to be an example to others who see it. In the end, this gospel is centered around the love of the Lord and of our Heavenly Father. Expressing that love for every one of my spiritual brothers and sisters is something that I live by. I try my best to be honest, kind, generous, and sincere in my life. Though I realize I'm not always perfect, I strive to be. Living what I believe can be difficult, but I always liked challenges.
