Hi I'm Keenan Smout

I grew up in Utah, I am a Cancer Survivor, I study Mechanical Engineering, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love Dancing, Dirtbiking, and Video Gaming. I'm Studying Mechanical Engineering in College. I love playing with anything mechanical that I can take apart and put back together again.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, But I never really knew it was true until I was Diagnosed with Cancer. Once I realized that this church was true at the age of 14 I knew that it was the only church with the full authority of the Priesthood, or the power to act in the name of God, with his power, I knew that only in this church could I find consistent peace and happiness. Since then I have learned that although my life my be stricken with sickness I can be at peace with the knowledge that my heavenly father loves me, that he sent his son to die that I might become clean of my sins again. And that through living the principles and comandment taught by a living prophet that has been called in these days I can return to live in the Presence of my heavnly father. In short I am a Mormon because being one allows me to know where I came from, why I'm here, and where I am going after this life.

How I live my faith

Being a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is not always the easiest things in this world where following the commandments of God is not a main focus of society. However in my life I have come to realize that living the commandments isn't something that confines me, in fact it is something that frees me. I find safety in living the commamndments of God, and actively participating in the Church. I love being around the other members who are living the same standards I am, and I love the feelings of Peace and Love that I feel during the church's services. I am currently Serving a mission in the Texas Houston South Mission.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Keenan Smout
 Missionaries will talk about prophets, and the chruch that Jesus Chirst organized when he was on the earth. They will share the plan that god has for each and every one of us, and they will teach what every one needs to do in order to live with God again. They will also teach and talk about the commandments that God has given us, to help our lives be better. Show more Show less
