Hi I'm Stephen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of 2 beautiful and crazy little boys living along the Pacific Coast. I recently graduated with my bachelors in social work and will be going back to begin graduate school. I love to read, teach, sing, draw, and play a variety of sports like volleyball, basketball, tennis, and soccer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it feels right inside. I have spent my life struggling with who I am and what I am supposed to be and do. I have struggled under the weight of expectations of myself and others placed upon me and I feel like I am constantly trying to please them. When I am doing my best to live the Gospel I have a sense of peace that I am who I am supposed to be. Nothing can beat that feeling. The feeling of knowing that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and a Savior who gave his life for me and that they can help me to live my life in a way that will help me to be happy, support me through my trials and sorrows, and help me to live with them and my family after this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow Jesus Christ's example of loving others. I realize that all of God's children are my brothers and sisters and try to be kind to them no matter who they are. I find no greater joy then in serving others. I love teaching my primary kids about the Savior and helping them to feel the Holy Spirit that points all to Christ. These opportunities to serve help me to feel the love that Heavenly Father and the Savior has for each one of us.
