Hi I'm Stephen Mark Facer

I love to surf. I live in Southern California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a son to a loving father and mother. I am a brother to three brothers and one sister. I am an uncle to one niece and one nephew. I love to play sports especially baseball, volleyball and soccer. I ran cross-country and track and field in high school. I love the ocean and everything about it. I love being in and near the ocean. I am in love surfing. I think about it all the time and nothing else feels the way it does to shred a wave. I just enjoy going to the beach no matter what I do there. I also enjoy listening to music with my friends and going to concerts. I really enjoy classic rock and reggae. I will attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah after I serve my mission. I plan to major in biology.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to follow Jesus Christ and live his Gospel everyday and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints helps me fulfill that desire. I also know for a fact that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he did restore the church that was originally established by Jesus Christ himself. I know that we are sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father that has designed a plan of happiness so that we can return to Him one day. I know that this church is the only true church and that anyone can know this too by praying to God. If you pray to God, I know the Holy Ghost will reveal the desires of your heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every week without fail and I always try to have a positive attitude. I give the sacrament to sick or elderly people every week. I always look for ways to serve my community such as participating in flower planting days in parks. I give talks frequently and often teach lessons to my youth group. Once a month, I help organize an activity for our youth group. I also teach a couple families with my dad each month.
