Hi I'm Kevin

I am from Kansas City, Missouri. I love all sports and outdoors activities and have a beautiful wife and a dog. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a passionate person. I am an Entrepreneur at heart. I got married 08/08/08. I enjoy all types of outdoor hobbies and love sports. I played baseball in College. I enjoy business and working on various types of projects. I speak fluent Italian. I LOVE food. I like to read and am always looking for a good book referral.

Why I am a Mormon

It is difficult at times to put into words what the Lord has done for me in my life. I do not know a lot or consider myself an expert in religion. However, I know that there is a God, and that He knows each of us personally. I follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ as taught in the Bible and confirmed in the Book of Mormon. I believe in modern revelation and that Christ has once again, just as He always has, called a Prophet to lead and guide us in these latter-days. We all can know the truthfulness of the Restoration of the fullness of Christ's gospel from the Spirit. The Hold Ghost is the single most important thing to have when yearning to know the truth. This Spirit has confirmed to me, many times, that the LDS church is God's church upon the Earth. I struggle just as everyone does with inconsistencies and shortcomings, but I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I can be forgiven of my transgressions, and be clean. I learn more every day the importance of reading the word of God and praying to Him to know His will and my role in spreading His gospel.

How I live my faith

I am heavily involved in my local ward congregation. I teach the nursery kids on Sundays with my wife. I am also the youth sports coach of my ward. I try to pray specifically for how I can help others in their lives. I look for opportunities to serve others in the community in volunteer roles. I strive to be a good Christian and stand for the principles I believe in. To me the most important thing I can do is be a good example to others. I am far from perfect but hope I can inspire others.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

The most effective way someone can know the LDS church is true is by reading the Book of Mormon, then by following the invitation in the book by asking God if it is true. One that does this with real intent and sincerity of heart will receive the answer from God. Once one receives this impression, they will then understand the truthfulness of the prophetic calling of Joseph Smith. With this foundation, one can know unquestionably that God has restored His church once again upon the earth in these latter-days. Show more Show less
