Hi I'm Kent

I grew up in Utah and joined the military. I'm currently a colonel in the Army and love serving my country.

About Me

 I've been married to my high-school sweet heart for nearly 36 years. We have four wonderful children who have been married in the temple. We currently have 15 grandchildren. I've been in the military for nearly 27 years. I've been stationed to Germany, Jordan, Iraq, Bosnia and Somalia. I love meeting new people from around the world.

Why I am a Mormon

 I've been a member of the church since turning eight. However, I had to gain my own testimony of the church through experience. I believe we are all converts to the church since we had to gain our own testimony. Being in the military has put me in many positions and situations to either sink or swim. I'm grateful for the standards of truth that are ageless and eternal. Being a member makes me want to be a better person. As stated in the scriptures, truth comes from God and makes us better in all aspects of our lives. It also brings us happiness.

How I live my faith

 I'm currently the ward mission leader. I love working with the full-time elders and sisters. Sharing my testimony is my most prized possession. I love to teach and work with the youth, especially my 15 grandchildren. They keep me young.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Kent
A prophet is a spokes person for God on earth. When the true church is upon the earth, God speaks through prophets so we can know of His will for us in our generation. I'm grateful that we have a modern prophet today, just like the Israelists did when Moses led them to the promised land. I cannot image what life would have been like if Moses, Abraham, Adam, Jacob or other prophets weren't prophets in their day - what would the people have done without their guidance from the Lord? God is no respector of people or of generations - He loves us all and He wants the best for us. As a result, He blesses us with a modern day prophet to guide us in our day, just like God had Moses, Abraham and other prophets due in their day. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Kent
 The family is the basic unit of the church. We have a Heavenly Father and are spirit children of God. If we can have families on earth, it stands to reason that we should have families in heaven. Knowing that I can be with my wife beyond the grave brings me happiness and joy beyond measure. Families can be forever. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Kent
 The simple answer is YES. We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and was born to Mary and is our savior from the fall and through the atonement we can all be saved. We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of our Heaven Father and we are created in God's image. Show more Show less
