Hi I'm Stephen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey Im from arizona but Im going to school in utah. I have been a member of the church my whole life and it has been great. I like rock climbing and playing soccer and hockey. I speak spanish and love mexican food!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the Mormon church, you are always going to activities and church. When I was little I was a Mormon because thats what my parents were. Later, I decided that I needed to know for my self if this was where I was supposed to be. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed. When I prayed to know if everything I was taught growing up was true, I did not receive an answer in that moment. I waited, I kept reading, and I kept praying. After a few days I was sitting reading in the Book Of Mormon and it hit me. I realized that I knew the Book of Mormon was true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. Since then, I have had many experiences that have confirmed the feeling I had that day. I know for myself that what I believe is true and that it comes from God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving every day to do what is right. I read the scriptures and pray daily and I try to help others. I try to help others come closer to Jesus Christ because I know that everyone can strengthen their faith in him.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Stephen
I know that there is a God because I have looked at my life and the lives of others and seen what God has done for us. In the world we live in today, there are many things that happen every day that cause pain in the lives of thousands of people. I have seen people struggle and lose hope of ever being happy, I have see people lose all desire to keep living, I have had friends that resorted to whatever means they could to get by. I know there is a God because I have see how he has helped these people to overcome their trials and find happiness. I have see lives change and peace come. To people who say there cannot be a God because of all the horrible things that happen in the world, I tell them to read the scriptures and think about who God is. God loves each and every person on earth and will always help them when they come to him. If there was no God, then how could he have answered my prayers and helped me when I needed him.
