Like so many other important figures found in the annals of history, Stephen holds an intense value for his family relationships. Even though Stephen grew up without certain normal familial figures, he has often said that he would not have had it any other way. "I firmly believe that I am a better person because of the environment I grew up in," Stephen told Barbara Walters. "I think my creativity stems from my lack of siblings. I was forced to entertain myself."

In the absence of brothers and sisters, Stephen substituted those relationships with his two first cousins, Josh and Julie Williams. During the summers of Stephen's youth, Josh and Julie were regular staples at the house of Stephen's grandmother, or as the grandchildren refer to her, Nana.

Stephen's mother, Vicki Phillips, and Nana still live in the little town of Henderson, Tennessee, where Stephen can still be seen every now and then. His deep duty to his family drives him back for visits several times a year.
