Hi I'm Kevin

I'm a college student. I'm a writer. Hablo español. I love music.

About Me

I'm originally from Indiana but I lived in Utah for a year studying in college. I recently finished serving an LDS Mission in Las Vegas Nevada. I love to write. I like to create something from nothing and put my ideas on paper (or a computer). It's my way of sharing my experiences and learning with others.

Why I am a Mormon

Through out my life I have asked this question to myself many times and I have only come up with one answer and that is because I believe in Christ. He is my savior. I know he lives and I know that my Heavenly Father has a plan for me. Many times I have doubted, or said it's too hard, but I know that if I trust in Him I can overcome the challenges that lay before me. I know that this is the true church of God because I have prayed and asked God to know for myself if it is true.

How I live my faith

Having faith doesn't just mean that I profess my belief in Christ through words. It's also about action. This isn't always easy to actually live my faith but I do the best I can to love others and to them find the path that God wants them to take. Christ lived his life in the service of others. That is what we must work toward.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Kevin
We believe that batism is essencial for salvation. We must follow the example that Jesus Christ set for us by being baptised. First of all we are showing obedience to one of God's commandments and second of all we are making a promise to God. We promise that we will obey his commandments and in return he promises us that our sins are forgiven, that we are clean from sin, and that we may have the Holy Ghost to be with us to lead us and guide us.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Kevin
For part of my life I didn't understand the importance of reading these books but I learned by excercising my faith in the Lord and doing it that there is a great importance in reading the scriptures. For me reading the scriptures gives us the peace, guidance, wisdom, and strength we need to overcome the challenges that we face in this life. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Kevin
Put simply, we should have faith in out lord and saviour Jesus christ. I learned from an experience I had just yesterday that I spend too much time trying to make everything perfect on my own but when I calm down take it slow and don't put so much weight on my own shoulders that it's better because in the end it's Jesus Christ who makes it work out.
