Hi I'm Keith

I'm a student. I love to race. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore in college. I am undecided on my major. I love to drag race, drive, camp and hike.  

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church in May of 2010. I was introduced to the church when I was in Utah going to college there. At first I was just investigating the church for a girl. Then she took me to temple square in Salt Lake and the Spirit really witnessed to me the truth of all this. I got a hold of the missionaries in Ogden, Utah and they taught me for 4 straight days. I moved back to Nevada and got a hold of the missionaries here. Joining this church was by far the best decision I have made. I myself was a skeptic. But the Spirit is undeniable to sincere truth seekers out there. It hasn't been easy. I had/have some imperfections, but through the atoning sacrifice of our Savior Jesus Christ, I am made whole. I have felt my burdens becoming lighter as I have sought the Saviors help. This brings me the greatest sense of joy and peace that I can have. I know that as I strengthen my relationship with the Savior, he will carry my burdens. He will wrap me and all of us in the arms of his love.

How I live my faith

I do my best to follow the Saviors footsteps. I do this by seeking his teachings and doing by best to keep the commandments. I'm far from perfect, but that's what repentance is for and I am very grateful for it. I constantly try to be like the Savior. By helping others in need, volunteering at retirement communities, and blessing the lives of others. I pray to Heavenly Father as often as I can. I read and ponder the scriptures. I magnify my ward callings. I take several institute of religion classes. I am going on a mission very soon to spread this happiness I have found to others. So they may receive the same blessings I have. I do the best I can to prepare to meet the Savior. 

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a prophet, seer and, revelator that the Lord called to restore his church upon the earth. In 1820 Joseph Smith wanted to know which church was the church of Jesus Christ. He went into the woods near his home to ask Heavenly Father which church was right. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith. The Savior told Joseph to join none of the churches. For none were His church. God chose to bring the church of Jesus Christ back to the earth through Joseph Smith. God sent angels to give Joseph Smith the priesthood. He translated the Book of Mormon by the gift and power of God. He is the first President of our church. Show more Show less
