Hi I'm Keith

I love the outdoors and I love the Lord Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a great family! I have a wonderful mother and father and three great sisters. I love the outdoors. I really enjoy camping, backpacking, mountain biking, snow skiing, snow boarding. Really I love everything to do with the outdoors. I also ran cross-country and track all through high school. I have also run a marathon. I also really like electronics. I build computers for friends and family. I am currently attending college and I am studying mechanical engineering. I served as a missionary for two years in Georgia. During those two years I became fluent in Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to know for myself in a very personal way that this is where my Heavenly Father would have me be. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the church that God has established on the earth in our days. I know that this is the same church that Jesus Christ himself established when he was here on the earth. For that reason we call our teachings the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. This knowledge and the blessings it brings have brought me through the most difficult times of my life.

How I live my faith

I have just returned from serving full-time all day every day in Georgia. My purpose for being there was to invite others to come unto Christ to really gain a personal relationship with Him. I have seen the lives of people change. It was not me that made them change but it was the Lord working through me. I seek to serve at every opportunity, whether it be helping someone in a hard time, or mowing their lawn. There are so many people in need right now in the world and I feel that I have truly been called to serve those around me even though I am no longer able to be out serving 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. At the moment I am part of a service organization at the university where I am attending. I organize service groups to help members of the community.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Everything around me tells me there is a God. I am very scientifically minded and I know that many people think of science and God as two separate things. I have never been able to find and logical explanation for how this universe exists other than there being a supreme creator. How could all of this be chance? I have felt many times in my heart a feeling that tells me that there is a God, and that he is our loving Heavenly Father. Like any loving parent sometimes he allows us to suffer disappointments and sorrows in life. Without those experiences we would never feel true joy or progress. I know that God exists and that he cares about us. Show more Show less
