Hi I'm Steven

I'm an engineer and I love to travel with my wife on a motorcycle. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My first occupation was repairing motorcycles, which I enjoyed, but decided to go to school for an engineering degree. I'm now an engineer, but my wife and I still travel all over on a motorcycle and I work on them for a hobby. I play the guitar and enjoy bluegrass and folk music along with some of the old favorites from the 60's and 70's. Our children are grown and we now have grandchildren, which we love.

Why I am a Mormon

I have Mormon ancestors on both sides of my family, so I was raised in the faith. As a young man I prayed to know what my Father in Heaven would that I should do and I was blessed with the reassurance that this was the right path. I have served in many positions in the church and have been blessed because of it. This has given me opportunities to bless other people's lives through service. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides a path for everyone to follow him, even those who were never blessed to know about the Savior in this life. That is one of the reassurances of the Savior's love for us. I have come to know that He knows me and loves me and that he knows and loves every one of us.

How I live my faith

I have had the privilege to work with youth most of my life through the church. I currently serve as a Cubmaster for a cub scout pack. It warms my heart to see young boy's eyes light up when they learn something new. The church is a sponsor of the Boys Scout program and I have had the honor of serving in several scout leadership positions over the years. I also have a priesthood calling to work with other priesthood holders to watch over and serve people within our local congregation. Over the years I have served in many capacities both at the local (Ward) level and in more regional (Stake) capacities. I served for several years as a bishop of a ward, where my responsibilities included seeing to the care of those in need and counseling with members who lived in the ward. The most important way that I live my faith is in trying to follow the example of the Savior in all that I do every day. I try to treat my co-workers with the courtesy that the Savior expects of me. My wife and I raised our children with that same kind of love and we've been blessed to watch them pass it on to our grandchildren. I know that my Savior loves me. That makes a difference in how I treat those that I associate or have any interaction with.
