Hi I'm Kevin.

I was born and raised in California. I am a biochemist, a computer programmer, and a writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with a love for computers. I could a whole day doing a variety of things on it. Things like creating graphics, designing webpages, writing programs, or interacting with people across the world. I love the freedom that it gives me. I also love people. Creating friends and sharing experiences with others has been one of the greatest blessing in this life. The greatest of those being my family. I am happily married to my dear wife Natalia and we want to have the joy of raising at least four wonderful children. It is a blessing we look forward to eagerly. One of my favorite activities, besides using the computer, is writing. I love to write anything that comes to my mind. Whether it is a poem, a song, or a story, I find writing to be a great way to spend the day. Someday I hope to publish a book. It is one of my dreams.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of a variety of witnesses that I have received by the power of the Holy Ghost. These witnesses have come in a variety of ways and times, and not always when I seek them out. Even so, there are a few thing I know without any doubts or reservations. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, our Redeemer, the Creator, and the Savior of all Mankind. I know that I can turn to him for peace and relief. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and stands as another witness of Jesus Christ alongside the Bible. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true and living Church, led by Jesus Christ. And I know these things because I searched for the truth, prayed for the answers, and followed the commandments. I know that all may receive a testimony of these things, if they seek for them earnestly and with a contrite heart and mind.

How I live my faith

I live what I believe by being there for those around me. I love the opportunities that I receive to help where I am needed. And I love any opportunity to share my feelings of the gospel with anyone that is willing to listen. I have had many wonderful experiences discussing my love of the Savior and his impact on my life with those that I come into contact with.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

There are many ways to increase one's faith in Jesus Christ. You can learn of His Atonement by reading of it in the scriptures. You can receive of His love by praying for relief, peace, or forgiveness. You can also increase your faith by following His commandments. As you feel of the goodness that comes from it, you can know that He has given you these commandments because of His love for you. Show more Show less
