Hi I'm Steven

I grew up in Southern California, went to college in Utah and Alabama, and have been a Physician Assistant for 38 years.

About Me

I am the father of 5 children and grandfather to 13 grandchildren. I am a retired Physician Assistant with 38 years of experience. I enjoy all outdoor activities especially rockhounding and seeing the wonders of our National Parks. I have enjoyed working in the medical field, especially medical and health education. I love to educate people on health issues in a way that they can understand.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a long history of family members including pioneers who were members of the Church. My mother was a member and married to my father, who was a member of another faith. My mother died when I was 18 months old and I was raised in my father's faith. I was not active in that faith as an adult because it didn't seem to be the true church. After marriage and having 2 children, my wife and I decided we needed religion in our lives that would help us be better parents and better spouses. With my family history of LDS church members on my mothers side, I was interested in learning more about the Mormons.We had many missionary lessons and finally felt inspired by that still small voice to be baptized. We have been members for 40 years. We continue to follow His gospel because we believe in the Plan of Salvation, that we can be an eternal family as long as we live the commandments, keep our Temple covenants and do all that we can do to further the Lord's work. I know this Church is true and is led by a living prophet today as it was in ancient times. I testify that the true church was removed from the earth at the death of the apostles and was restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith under the direction of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently a teacher of young children at church. I have held many church leadership positions during my lifetime. I am an active home teacher to two families and an elderly lady and have had many opportunities to serve these people in the form of administering blessings for health conditions, transportation, large yard projects and sincerely being a friend.
