Hi I'm Kevin

I love the adventure of the outdoors, I enjoy making other people happy, I believe laughing is essential, and im a Mormon.

About Me

Howdy! My name is Kevin. I am the youngest of 9 children in my family. Coming from such a large family, you can imagine how much they mean to me. As I have grown up, I have been able to see what a blessing it is that God has provided me with a loving family to keep me safe and help me make correct decisions in my life. Growing up, I was always into sports. If I wasn't playing tennis, I was playing baseball, and if I wasn't playing baseball, I was playing basketball. Being active and up-to-date in my sporting activities has always been very important to me because I hate to lose! Competition has been something that has really molded me into who I am today. Just like everyone else, I have a lot of weaknesses and trials that I need to overcome on a daily basis. I used to have a very quick temper growing up and I would get really frustrated with myself and those around me if we couldn't do everything just right. Now, as my understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has increased, I have become more patient. I understand that the Lord is on my side and wants me to be happy and successful. I have accepted that for the most part, I will never be good enough, I will always come up short. With the knowledge of the Gospel, im ok with that. I know that my Savior will always have His arms stretched out to me and I can rely on Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the witness I have received from my Heavenly Father. Everyone has heard about the standards that the mormons have, like no alcohol or drugs, we don't drink tea or coffee, and we even dare go so far to keep ourselves pure and clean with the hopes we can be united with our future spouse for time and all eternity. Throughout High School, I received a lot of the criticism a young man gets when he turns down a drink, or refuses to go to the "big party" that everyone's going to be at. Now being witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ here in Texas, I receive ridicule, embarassment, hecklings and even threats to my well-being for believing what I believe. Everytime I am confronted with these darts from the adversary, I am always brought back to remembering what the Lord has allowed me to feel. I know with every fiber of my being that I have felt the sweet feeling of the Holy Spirit touch my soul and witness to me that this Church, and the Gospel we preach is true. Every time I pick up the Book of Mormon to read, I feel it. Every time I get the chance to bear my testimony that God and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and through him restored Their Gospel, I feel it. I have experienced the blessings of living the Gospel and the peace that comes from knowing I am clean before my Master through His merciful sacrifice. I know, that this is the "strait and narrow way" that will lead us back into the arms of our Savior forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the person I am. I am always looking for an opportunity to extend a helping hand to those in need. I love sharing my testimony with everyone I meet so they can see how much this message has blessed my life. I believe that Jesus Christ is the perfect example for each and every one of us. He didn't just preach to the multitudes, but He showed the way. I believe in following His example in trying to be the best I can be, and bring others with me. Whether that is by helping a young child lift himself off the ground after falling off his bike, or comforting a mother that has had her family torn by the loss of a child, or by just saying hello to a person that has had a rough day. I live my faith by trying to be an instrument in the hands of the Lord in rendering service to His children. To quote a scripture using the Book of Mormon, "For when ye are in the service of your fellowbeings, ye are only in the service of your God."
