Hi I'm Elder Steve Austin Pauli

I was born in Oakland, California on October 23, 1994. I am now serving a mission in Alberta, Canada for two years.

About Me

I really love the lord because I realize what he has given me. He has given me the strength to be who ever I want to be. I myself love everything that life has to offer I am only an ordinary person like everyone. Being a member of the church does not change my personality or who I am or meant to be. I love the chance to share my love for the gospel to anyone I come in contact with because I know what it can do. For personality wise I love outdoor activities and I love to be myself around others because honestly when you are yourself then others can see you clearly.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint" because I believe in it with all the certainty of my heart. This gospel has taught me so much not just about church but also how to live our life yeah it's not easy to live the standards but it is worth it!!! We seem to lose faith in life when we stumble and fall but don't have the courage to get back up. You have the strength, you have the potential just show that you have it. God does love you!!! And for those of you who don't think he does well think again open your heart.

How I live my faith

Well its just another member on the beautiful planet.I hate to say that sometimes I wish it would end and sometimes not. I have been a member as long as I can remember but i can say I have murmured at times I have rebelled,but I still find the strength to push forward and trying my best. Yes I have transgressed i have sinned,but I am not a perfect person. I have climbed mountains, walked miles, and I have sweated more then i drink water. I lay on my bed like there is no more life left in me, but I wake up everyday to find that loving God that has always been there for me. I have cried, I have been mad, I have complained that I am always tired, and I have been brought down to my knees to pray for my mistakes. I have been rejected, called stupid, and I have been made fun of because I am a Mormon, but i still stand shoulder to shoulder and bear my testimony that this is the true church. This is what my life is like til the end, but i will never forget the drops of blood he shed so I can be here.The love he showed us I can not help but to help others realize what he did. He sacrificed his life for us so what will you sacrifice for him.He made it possible for all of us to be with those who we loved . So how will you show your love!!! Don't let anyone run your life but yourself.
