Hi I'm Kevin

Grew up in the Midwest. Joined the Navy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I’m a retired United States Navy Master Chief Electrician’s Mate and during my years in the Navy I served onboard nuclear powered cruisers and aircraft carriers. I'm an Amateur Radio Operator, photographer and aspiring 3D artist.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Catholic, attended Catholic school, and for the most part I stayed out of trouble. Despite activity at Church, I always felt that there was something more. I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and found what was missing.

How I live my faith

Throughout my membership in the Church I've served in a wide variety of callings. It's so true that there is no one calling that is any more important than any other calling, but sometimes you have the opportunity to be the most important person called when you're needed by someone in the Ward or Stake. I try to be available and provide my help whenever it is needed, for my benefit as well as for the person in need.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Kevin
Without grace, none of us would ever make it back to Heavenly Father. We never even come close to being as perfect and as clean as we would have to be in order to live with Him again. He expects us to do our best, every single day. If we do not do as he teaches, we can and we will be held accountable for our actions. We are taught to follow His commandments and this we must do for grace to be effective for us when we return to Him. I consider the concepts of repentance and forgiveness to be some of the greatest gifts we could ever be given. Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Kevin
Sometimes the missionaries themselves have saved and sacrificed throughout their lives to be able to fund their own way. Sometimes they're funded by the families and friends of the missionaries who serve. Either way, people back at home care deeply about them and care about the work of finding lost souls and bringing them home. Show more Show less
