Hi I'm Steven Jay Laxton

I'm Steven Laxton, and I am from a small town by Smithville, TN. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to whitewater kayak, rock climb, fish, and swim. I just graduated high school and now I am going to serve a mission in the Chile Santiago East Mission. I know spanish mostly but most of all I love to go to church!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me, stronger than I have ever felt the spirit before, that the Book of Mormon is true and that this is the lord's true gospel here upon the earth again. I have felt the spirit tell me this over and over again, testifying these same truths to me ever since I found the answer as to which gospel is the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living it! Living it means applying the teachings of Jesus Christ to your life and following them diligently! I pray at least 3 times a day and every night I read a couple chapters from the scriptures and what i read I apply to my life to live like, and come closer, to Jesus Christ and our Heavenly father.
