Hi I'm Keith

A Husband, Father, Grandfather and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a beautiful wife, we have 7 children and 13 grandchildren. Was born in Arizona, but now live in the Atlanta area of Georgia. I enjoy our kids and grandkids, the floor seems to be the place to be and wrestling seems to be the fun thing to do. We have 2 dogs and they enjoy the yard, the sun and one loves to chase the Frisbie, a ball or anything that you could throw and he could bring back for more. I love to bowl and used to be pretty good at it. I enjoy playing baseball, softball and volley ball. The redneck in me comes out anytime Monster Jam comes to town. Nothing like watching big trucks with super powerful engines go flying through the air and crushing anything that gets in their way.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a few different Protestant churches being taught about Jesus Christ. As I married and had more questions about religion I tried my wifes church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I had her promise me that no one would try to convert me to "her" Church. But they taught truths that were new to me and they made sense based on the questions I had. I continued to come with her to church on a regular basis. Then one day a friend "her Home Teacher" asked me if I wanted to be taught the Baptismal lessons and I said sure, why not. That was the begining of the rest of my life of learning to know Jesus Christ not to just know of him. Now twenty some years later I am a local leader in the church and have a great family. Not just a family at home, but a church family with like beliefs and values. People I can lean on if needed for help or that feel like they can lean on me likewise.

How I live my faith

Starting and ending my day with prayer and scriptures is the antidote for surviving day to day life for me. When I include the Lord in making my daily plans the day sure runs smoother. And when I take time to thank Him and ask for forgiveness where I came up a little short at the end of the day it sure makes it easier to talk to him in the morning.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

I have come to know Jesus Christ through continued study of the scriptures and prayer. I now not only believe in Christ, but I believe Christ and His teachings. I know that He loves me and knows me for who I am. He accepts me and is my personal Savior. I trust that through my living the life he would have me live, that he will make up for my short comings. I look forward to the day that I will live with Him and my Heavenly Father again. Show more Show less
