Hi I'm Stephen

I grew up in Orange County, California. I study astronomy at BYU and currently serve in the Chile Santiago North mission.

About Me

I enjoy surfing and fishing. My passion is exploration and science, and I hope to be an astronaut one day. I am the oldest of five children. I play the saxophone and love music.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to Mormon parents. In preparation for baptism into the church, I investigated Joseph Smith's claim to divine authority by studying his life and reading the Book of Mormon. When I read and prayed about the Book of Mormon, the Holy Spirit witnessed to me that it is a true book. Because of this knowledge about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and, consequently, the church, I have striven to become a better person and live the way God wants me to live.

How I live my faith

I served as a clerk in my student ward at college. I report to serve in the Chile Santiago North mission on June 1, 2016. I am grateful for this opportunity to serve the people of Chile
