Hi I'm Kevin

I currently live in Texas. I love the Lord, I love my family, and I love life. And I'm a mormon.

About Me

I live in Texas. I am married and love my wife, and am a father and love my little boy. My family provides a lot of meaning in my life. I am a big music enthusiast, especially choral music. I love playing sports, and have actively played basketball, soccer, tennis, water and snow sports, and ultimate frisbee my whole life. I am originally from Oregon, and have a place in my heart for the green and rainy Northwest. I love learning, and feel that we were created to progress and grow in knowledge and faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I rejoice in the similarities that the LDS Church has with other churches, and that there are so many people who know Jesus and live wonderful lives. The reason that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, however, is because of the differences, and those differences come from the restoration of the power of God Priesthood and the fulness of the Gospel. I believe that God has a pattern of calling prophets to testify of Jesus Christ as our redeemer and to teach mankind His will. I believe that such prophets have been called in our day, and maintain the unity of the faith in the Church of Jesus Christ today just as the apostles did in the days of the New Testament. I believe that the power to act in God's name was not available following the death of the New Testament apostles and prophets, but that it is now again available. This means that the power unto salvation through Baptism and other saving ordinances is again available, and I am a Mormon because I believe that that power is found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time. I feel that a lot of simple things make up a lifestyle in how I live my faith. I read the scriptures each day, trying to better understand the life of Jesus Christ and his Gospel. I strive to be the best husband and father that I can be. I do my best to view everybody as a spirit son or daughter of God, and recognize that everybody in this world has immeasurable worth and potential. I love seeing people happy and try to share my beliefs with them in order to help them come closer to Christ. I also dedicate a good amount of time to my service calling in the Church by working with our full-time missionaries and helping people learn about the Church and Gospel, prepare for baptism, and
