Hi I'm Kirk

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband to a beautiful wife and a father to 4 wonderful kids. I love playing sports with my kids or watching them participate in sports teams.

Why I am a Mormon

For as long as I can remember I have been taught one simple principle that defines what being a Mormon is to me. That principle is to identify truth and accept it. I have found truth when attending church, studying the scriptures, listening to leaders of the church teach, as well as through prayer. I have also found truth outside of the church, such as when I have attended school or while working with others in my occupation. Being a Mormon has always allowed me to embrace truth no matter what the source. The following list are items that I have learned to be true, which encourage me to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints: 1) The fall of Adam was necessary to put our Heavenly Fathers plan in motion. This fall allows good and evil to be present in the world. 2) Each of us was given the right to choose between the good and bad in the world. When we choose good, we get closer to God. When we choose bad we feel further from him. 3) All of us will choose bad at some point in our life. The only exception was Jesus Christ. 4) Jesus Christ is real. He not only lived on this earth, he lived perfectly, and taught us the way to live. He gave us the Atonement to enable us to overcome our bad choices and be cleansed so that we can achieve a fullness of joy. 5) The authority to represent Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. Today President Thomas S. Monson holds the keys to act as the Lord's mouthpiece. If we follow his counsel we will be better prepared to return to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I put my family first. The first items blocked out on our family calendar is time that we will spend together. There is not a higher priority in my life. The church allows me many opportunities to serve others. I strive to set an example and involve my family in helping others. Through service to others I have not only found great joy, but I have gained great experiences that have shaped my character.
