Hi I'm JJ Stein

I grew up in Utah and fell in love with baseball. I pitch and catch. Right now I'm on a mission in Dallas Texas!

About Me

I am SUPER into sports. Mainly baseball. I played for my high school and put college on hold for my mission. I also LOVE to golf with my friends. My family owns a restaurant (Steiny's Family Sports Grill) where i work as a cook. My friends and i all go to the restaurant to chill and watch a game or two most of the time. Right now, I am Serving in the Texas, Dallas Mission. I am loving it! All the different people i have met and the awesome experiences I've had have been life changing. I come from a family of 6. I am the oldest of 4 children. I have two sisters and a brother. My mother is Mormon but my Dad isn't. My dad is SUPER supportive and has taught me all i know.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Faith and always have gone to church. But, it wasn't until my senior year that I fully became converted to it. Everyone sees Mormons whether we like it or not, and i take that as a challenge. I want to show people just how great we can be. Lead by example.

How I live my faith

Living my faith right now has come in the for of being a full time missionary. I wasn't sure if i really wanted to serve one at first. Like i said, i LOVE baseball. And, i had multiple opportunities to pursue that road. Which i WAS going to do. It wasn't until my senior year of high school that i decided to put the Lord before baseball. The blessing i received were amazing and my testimony of this Gospel grew SO much over that year filled with a lot and prayer. Breaking the news to my dad was one of the hardest things I've ever done. But, the amount of respect he has for me grew, and he is one of the people supporting me the most.
