Hi I'm Keith
I'm a Husband, a Dad, A College Football Junkie, a Friend, A neighbor, and I'm a Mormon
On July 21st, 1996 I was a passenger in an automobile which was broadsided by another car which was traveling between 78-93 mph. It changed my life and left me with a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury. I am permanently disabled and am now a "Stay At Home" Husband & Father. I do most of the cooking and cleaning, yard work, shopping and "Mommy Duties" of child care while my wonderful bride works hard at her career. I Love College Football and all sports really, spending time with my wife and children, RVing and self education. I love the study of religion, especially the scriptures and doctrines of all faiths. I love to volunteer and help others to the best of my ability, and make others smile and be happy. I try hard every day to improve at being a good father and husband, friend to all, and at being a good neighbor. I have a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I know that He lives, was crucified, and rose on the third day and has a body of flesh and bone just as we have, the scriptures point this fact out without deviation. This knowledge has changed my life, and it can change your's too.
Why I am a Mormon
Why am I a Mormon? That is a very complex yet simple question to answer. I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God as surely as I know the Bible is the word of God so far as it has been translated correctly! I am a Mormon because living the precepts and principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the Savior teaches gives me freedom from many things, although I still suffer temptation and afflictions. I am a Mormon because I know that when Jesus ascended into heaven angels declared that He would return as those who saw him ascend saw him ascend, with a body of flesh and bone. Because of that I know He is a glorified man, and the Bible tells me that when He returns we shall see Him as He is because we will be LIKE HIM!!! What is He according to Acts? A Glorified Resurrected Man/God!!! I am a Mormon because it makes me happy and I know we all can be together as a family again in the eternities, and it helps me to understand the Atonement in it's full interpretation, not just one aspect, but both so far as man can understand from the enticings and teachings of the Holy Ghost! That is why I am a Mormon!
How I live my faith
Recently I was called as the Second Councilor in the new Bishopric. I guess that would be like an "Assistant Pastor" in a "Protestant Church", or an "Priest serving under a Monsignor" in a Catholic Church. I hope that gives you an idea. We don't receive any pay to hold these positions we do it because we love the Lord, and we fit it into our spare time around our full-time jobs, around family and everything else we do. We get paid in the blessings we receive by serving others. I love the Lord and do my best to serve Him by serving my fellow man.
