Hi I'm Kelton

I am attending the University of Utah. I grew up in Utah. I love sports, math, and helping others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an easy going guy who loves people. I love to work with my hands and get things done the way they should be done. I love basketball, football, and biking. I love my family. I am the eighth of nine kids. There is nothing better than the feeling I get from helping others. I love math, physics, and learning about everything. I want to be a mechanical engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when I have questions I can ask God, the Eternal Father and He will answer me. I have been able to overcome great challenges in my life through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. The fullness of its effects come from being a member of His church. The gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth by Jesus Christ through the prophet Joseph Smith. God is not silent. He still speaks to us through prophets, just as He has through the past. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it is true. God has revealed to me through the Spirit that it is true. I can find great joy through living the gospel.

How I live my faith

I try my best everyday to do what the Savior would do. Daily prayer and scripture study give me the direction and strength I need to do my best.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

All of God's children need to be baptized. As Jesus tells us in the bible"Verily Verily except a man be born of water and of the spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." Baptism is a sacred ordinance that can only be performed on earth. We perform this ordiance by proxy so that our ancesters and all of God's children may be saved. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

You can and will know that the Mormonism is true by reading The Book of Mormon and then asking God, the Eternal Father in the name of Jesus Christ if it is true. You will receive the answer that it is true if you really have a desire to know and you are willing to act on the answer that God gives you. This is how I gained my testimony. This is the only way that you will gain a testimony. Show more Show less
