Hi I'm Kimball

I live in Great Falls, Mont. with my wife and 2-year-old son. I work as a reporter for the Great Falls Tribune.

About Me

I enjoy writing, which is why I decided to major in journalism in college. I graduated from the University of Montana in 2010 and went to work for the Great Falls Tribune a couple of months after that. I spend a lot of time writing about shootings and stabbings and other unsavory things, so I like to sit down and write some fiction just to keep myself sane. I have a wife who teaches piano and a very smart 2-year-old boy. In my free time, I enjoy playing my drums and splurging at record stores.

Why I am a Mormon

The easy answer is because I was born a Mormon, as were my parents and their parents and their parents, etcetera. I grew up taking my faith for granted - it was just something that I was a part of. It took a while before it became a part of me. Gaining a testimony of the gospel is usually gradual, and that was certainly the case with me. I decided when I was 19 to serve a two-year mission for the church, and I was called to serve in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Those two years were essential in affirming my faith in Jesus Christ and in the restoration of His gospel. Since then, I've tried to live according to the things I know to be true, which is hardly ever easy or convenient, but always rewarding.

How I live my faith

I am part of the leadership in my ward's group for men ages 18 and older. Some Sundays I'll teach a lesson in our meetings. Throughout the week we might also help a family move in or out of the ward. I'm also responsible for helping oversee the home teaching efforts in our ward. Basically, if you're a man that falls into our age group, it's part of my job to help you feel welcome, useful and loved when you come to church. In general, I try to live my faith by following Jesus' example of kindness, generosity and service. I try to be decent to everyone I meet, and I enjoy learning from other people's perspectives.
