Hi I'm Keith Biggs

I am a husband, father, grandfather, chiropractor... and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Keith. My wife, Ruth, and I have been married for nearly 25 years and we have seven wonderful children. Just last year we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl grand-daughter. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my entire life. Ruth is a convert to the church. We met when in High School, and she joined the church before I left to serve a mission for the church in Quito Ecuador. I work as a Chiropractor, and I love spending my off time with my wife and kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because when I search, ponder, and pray, the Holy Ghost confirms the truth of the gospel and The Lord's church by communicating with my spirit. Even though I was raised a "Mormon", I eventually had to find out for myself if the church was true or not. My earliest memories of a budding testimony are from high school. I attended a school where there were not many mormons, and I had friends that asked, at times, difficult questions. As I studied to find answers, I prayed for guidance and confirmation. The Holy Ghost confirmed to me certain truths regarding my studies. My testimony continued to grow and solidify as I served a mission for the church in Ecuador. My mission provided experiences that I now call my "anchors". These anchors are experiences that I hold dear to my heart, that help me to weather the storms of life. I have learned through the trials of life to hold fast to what I know to be true. The storms come and go for me, just like they do for everyone, but I know of God's plan for man. I know that He loves us, and that in particular, he loves me. I know that he sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to atone for my sins. I don't pretend to fully know and understand how the atonement works, but I DO know that it is true. I have felt the love of my Father in Heaven, and I have felt the atoning love of Jesus Christ. I am thankful for my testimony, and the strength that it gives me in life. Without it, I would be like a ship without a ruder, tossed and driven by the winds with no particular direction. With my testimony, I am able to chart a course for my life. I am thankful for the knowledge that families are forever. I can't imagine eternity without my wife and kids with me.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by living the commandments. Christ simplified the commandments down to two basic laws: Love God, and Love our Fellow Men. On the surface these two commandments appear to be simple, but as I contemplate their meaning, and truly try to conform my life to be one of love and service to God and man, the complexity of these two laws becomes apparent. I have a long way to go, but I work hard, first of all, in treating my wife and kids with love and kindness. They will be the first to tell you that I am not perfect in this, but it is where I put forth my greatest effort. I also strive to serve and love others that I come in contact with at work and play. Our Savior's desire is for us to accept his grace and to follow his example. By knowing that The Savior, Jesus Christ, atoned for my sins, I am comforted by the fact that I have hope in Him and his sacrifice for me.
