Hi I'm Keaton!

Im from Arizona, love sports, love my family, and Im a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Arizona and have 3 brothers and 1 sister. I played football in Highschool, and Sports are something ive always enjoyed. Comedy is a big part of my life as well. I love to make people laugh!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of the church of Jesus Christ as were all my brothers and sister. My father is a convert but my mother was raised Mormon as well. I agreed with everything the church taught and loved the environment but i had a lot of questions to things. I knew the church was good and i liked what it helped me become but i began to have some doubts about things the church claimed. As an important decision in my life crept closer i decided its time to know for myself if this is the true church. I began to read the Book of Mormon with the question in my heart, "Is all of this true, was Joseph Smith a Prophet?" I knew if the Book of Mormon was true everything i had been taught was true as well. As i continued to read and pray about where i should go in my life i recieved that special witness from the Holy Ghost that i had known the truth all along and that The Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith is a prophet, and that Christs' true church has been restored to the Earth today. God loves all of us and wants us to walk in the light so why wouldnt he give it us?. The Book of Mormon is the evidence that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and that he restored Gods Church and His Priesthood authority to the Earth. Through diligent study and sincere prayer, with a willingness to act upon whatever Gods answer was to me is how i came to know this church is true. The Spirit bore strong witness to me and has changed my life forever.

How I live my faith

Living the gospel is not always easy, but its always worth it. I am currently serving a full time mission for the church in the Pocatello, Idaho Mission and am looking forward to fulfilling my calling here for the next 2 years!

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

We can come to know our Father in Heaven through sincere prayer. It is a hard concept to grasp sometimes but he is our loving father in heaven who created our spirits and is watching over us now, waiting for our return to him. Prayer is the way he provided for us to communicate with one another while on Earth. We cant see him but we can feel him and know what he is telling us throguh prayer. When we pray and ask him if he is there, or any question, he will always answer. Maybe not right away, but in his time all questions will be answered and the Spirit will bear witness to all of us that he is there and loves us. The scriptures are also a great way to learn of him and what he desires for us. The things he taught people of old and their accounts of him are great to study and then pray about! When we do so, the Spirit confirms that we are reading is true and that God is there. Show more Show less

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

The scriptures are one way that God is able to communicate with us. The sacred writtings that we read from invite the Spirit into our lives and help answer questions. Even though the scriptures were written hundreds of years ago they help us with problems and challenges we face in these times by applying what we read. We learn new things when we study with the company of the spirit and the teachings within the scriptures help us follow Gods commandments more succesfully in our lives and help us learn his will for us.
