Hi I'm Kevin

I love making music. I am the religious pioneer of my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Music is a great passion of mine. I play the piano, organ, saxophone, clarinet, bassoon, and a number of other instruments. I also enjoy writing music as much as I enjoy playing it, and listening to it. I graduated from college with a Bachelor's degree in Instrumental Music Education. I love to share music with others , and I plan on working to receive a teaching credential.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have prayed, pondered and asked. I have chosen this course because it brings me joy, and because I have found that I am a better person when I put in practice the Doctrines of the Christ. I have not always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In the fall of 2006 I began my investigation of the Church. I have had my ups and downs of building a testimony. In December of that year I received what was at that time an unwelcome Christmas gift: The Book of Mormon. I had read all of about three pages before deciding to put it down and not pick it back up again for a while. The Lord began to soften my heart. I received the missionary discussions and attended Church service. I began to pray with more earnestness and real intent. In the Fall of 2008 I began to feel like reading again. As my testimony grew, I felt prompted one Sunday in October to bear my testimony. I said nothing of the Book of Mormon, nor of Joseph Smith (because I did not know), but testified that The Bible was the word of God, and that Christ suffered and died for all mankind. Over the next month my knowledge and testimony grew. In November of 2008 I felt that familiar prompting to bear my testimony in Church. I went up to the pulpit not knowing before hand the thing that I should say. As I began to speak the Lord worked in my heart. As I continued to speak I felt moved upon by the Spirit to speak. Tears rolled down my face as I said: I know that the Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I know that The Book of Mormon is the Word of God. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Kingdom of God on the Earth. The moment the words left my mouth (and not a moment sooner) I knew that it was true. I was baptized on the 16th of November 2008. I am a Mormon because the Spirit has revealed it to me; I have received this testimony by the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the gospel; by taking a step into the light in spite of the darkness. I apply the doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in everything I can, and I live to put into motion the principles that have so profoundly impacted me. I find joy in the service of God, and know that by putting Him first, all these things shall be added unto me.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Kevin
You can know that Mormonism is true through honest and sincere communication with your Father in Heaven. We call this Prayer. When you go humbly to God pondering, and asking him to reveal to you true and correct teachings, he will answer you through the quiet yet affirming manifestation of the Holy Ghost within you. By his Spirit, you may know the truth of all things. Follow the Lord's commandments and live his laws everyday of your life, and you will be granted this Spirit of truth as your constant companion, all the days of your life. Show more Show less
