Hi I'm Steven

Writing, filmmaking, and being Mormon are my daily routine.

About Me

First thing to know is that I make a lot of films. If you're a friend of mine you've probably been asked to hold a boom pole or two in my videos produced in high school. Films have fascinated me for as long as I can remember, and that love and passion of storytelling is now deep inside of me. I plan on going to college and following filmmaking once I graduate highschool, and get home from my mission. That reminds me—I'm graduating this May, and leaving to Finland to preach the gospel for two years!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I love my church! I love the people in it, and what we believe. One of our beliefs is of Jesus Christ. Now that I think of it—he's my closest advocate, and my best friend. His Atonement heals me, and His spirit is with me. I promise He's there for you too. One way to get to know Him better is through the Book of Mormon. It was translated by a farm boy named Joseph Smith. He became the first prophet of our church. I know the Book of Mormon's true, and I love the crinkle of every page inside of it. Families can be together forever by being sealed in the holy temple. I know that I'll be married there someday, and have a wonderful family. We'll be together forever through Heavenly Father's plan. I believe in Christ, I have felt His joy, I'm a Mormon—even though it isn't always easy. It is always worth it.

How I live my faith

The faith I live is one of service. Christ served, and was kind to all, so I try my best to follow that example (sometimes it can be really hard)! I smile, and get to know people's stories and why they feel they're here. That's one nice thing about making documentaries, and short films: I appreciate people's stories so much more. I love to listen, and I could sit down for hours finding out who you are and who you want to become. That's how I live my faith: constant growth, and empathy.
