Hi I'm Keith

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in a small town in Eastern Oregon. I learned to enjoy outdoor activities and working with my family. I am a respiratory therapist, and I specialize working with premature infants. I have 7 adult children and 8 grandchildren. My children and grandchildren are the joy of my life. I enjoy SCUBA diving and snorkeling.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and grandparents are Mormon. As I was growing up, I observed how the Mormon teachings helped my parents through tough times. The church activities they participated in and service they gave enriched their lives. Each of us must come to a knowledge of spiritual things on our own; and through living the precepts of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I have the same knowledge my parents have. My children and grandchildren are making the same spritual discoveries I have made. Through praying to my Father in Heaven and through studying the scriptures, I know for myself that God is real, that He loves us, that He guides us through a prophet, and that The Book of Mormon is scripture. One of my favorite church songs is "Sweet is the Peace the gospel Brings."

How I live my faith

I do my best to be a good Christian and to follow the precepts taught by Jesus. I try to learn from my mistakes and trust in the Atonement of Jesus. I teach weekly lessons at church to the men in my ward (congregation)

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

In our local area, Mormons are asked to paint schools, clean parks, and get involved in community activities such as blood drives for the Red Cross. This week our congregation is joining with other Christian chuches to assist the local school district in moving many materials for classrooms. We are also involved in contributing money and material for international assistance for disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and floods. Show more Show less
