Hi I'm Kevin Pratt

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work as an insurance agent in the South Texas area. In my profession, I get to travel all over South Texas, meeting a lot of different people, which I enjoy. I am married to an awesome wife, and we have 4 children. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially when we are playing games, camping, visiting water parks and sporting events. Even though I am not as physically active as I should, I love watching sports, mostly the college variety. I love my church congregation, whom I consider my second family. I have had wonderful experiences working with the youth and many Scout Troops over the years. I am constantly amazed by the youth's selflessness, love and willingness to choose the right.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a loving family, which attended and served in the LDS church. My testimony really started to grow as I served a two year mission to Minnesota. On my mission I learned that giving service provides blessings for the recipient the giver. I also gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon, as I shared it's teachings of the Savior Jesus Christ. As I have continued to serve, my testimony of the Savior has increased. In other words, I can feel the Savior's love as I try to help those around me. Even though it can be tough and inconvenient sometimes, I try not to pass up opportunities to give of my time and talents. I will never have all of the answers to life's questions, however I know that God and Christ love me and through the their gospel my family can be together for ever. This simple testimony keeps me on the right path and give me hope that I will be able overcome my shortcomings. I am a Mormon, due to these simply truths.

How I live my faith

Some of my favorite and inspiring experiences while living my faith has been while working with the young people of the LDS church. I learned early on that even though youth may not seem like they are listening or paying attention, they really are. When given the opportunity and in the right atmosphere, youth can provide amazing service and love. I have had many "seasons" in my life, which have provided a variety of opportunities to live my faith in a variety of capacities. These "seasons" have taught me to never pass up an opportunity to help move someone, assist in service projects, going on scout trips, and set up and take down hundreds of chairs for church events. When I serve and hear about others service experiences, I feel good. This feeling of love reminds me to live my faith at every opportunity.
