Hi I'm Kevin

I have a beautiful wife and three handsome boys. I'm a software engineer and I love the LA Lakers. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and a father of three wonderful boys. As a family, we enjoy going on bike rides, playing Thomas the Tank Engine trains, and going to Sea World. My personal hobbies include basketball, golf, and mountain biking. I'm a software engineer developing software for unmanned aircraft. My favorite sports team is the Los Angeles Lakers.

Why I am a Mormon

Because the Book of Mormon, in addition to the Bible, is the word of God. My conversion story - When I was in college, I started dating my wife. My wife was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I knew my wife's religion was important to her and we would need to resolve our religious differences if our relationship was going to go anywhere. While we were dating, my wife invited me to meet with the Mormon missionaries. At first, I was reluctant and resistant to this, but I eventually agreed to meet with the missionaries. The missionaries met me at my house and started teaching me about the Mormon faith. They gave me a Book of Mormon and invited me to read it and pray to know if the book is true. It took a little bit of time, but eventually I started reading the Book of Mormon and began to ponder if the book is true. As I met with the missionaries and was reading the Book of Mormon, I saw improvements in my life - I was a happier person. After a few months of meeting with the missionaries, they invited me to be baptized in the Church and I agreed. Through my reading of the Book of Mormon and prayer, I received an answer that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. When I was baptized, I felt the Spirit very strongly... it is hard to describe in words the feeling I felt. But I knew then, without a doubt, that I had done the right thing in joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

Reading the scriptures daily and trying to be a good husband and father.

What is the Book of Mormon?

 The Book of Mormon is another testament and provides another witness to the Bible that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Like the Bible, the Book of Mormon is the word of God. The Book of Mormon contains a history and God’s dealings with people who lived in the Americas between 600 BC and 400 AD. Similar to the Bible, the Book of Mormon contains the writings of God’s prophets who testified of Jesus Christ and the teachings of God. By reading the Book of Mormon, we can strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ and draw closer to our Heavenly Father.  Show more Show less
