Hi I'm Steven

I am a retired business man living in Sandy, Utah. I am a husband, a father, a grandfather and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, a father and a grandfather. I am a golfer and a BYU fan. I love sharing the gospel with others. I have spent my adult married life in the Real Estate and Mortgage Banking field. I am now retired and serving a mission for the Church in Stockholm, Sweden.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I have a testimony that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth and that we are led by a living Prophet of God even Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

Currently my wife and I are serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Stockholm, Sweden. This our second mission for the Church. Our first mission was in Leeds, England. We miss our children and grandchildren dearly but know that the Lord will watch over them in our absence. We have served in many different positions in the church throughout our married life. We love to travel. My wife requires a beach and I require a gold course.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Our families provide a setting for much of the growth we experience in life. In our families we love, serve, teach, and learn from each other. We share our joys and our sorrows. Family ties may bring us difficult challenges, but they also give us strength and some of our greatest happiness. The family is central to God’s plan for His children. It is also the central unit of society and the means for bringing children into the world where they can be loved, provided for, and taught truth and righteousness (see “The Family: A Proclamation to the World”). While we cannot choose the conditions of our birth, we can choose each day to make our families stronger and happier. It is possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally. Show more Show less
