Hi I'm Kevin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost, I am a husband and a father. I work for a non-profit health care provider and currently supervise 24 people. I enjoy grilling and sports. I can't get enough college football. I lived in Brazil for 2 years as a missionary and credit that service more than my bachelor's degree for my professional success. I love my family and enjoy camping and other outdoor activities with them. My children are homeschooled and keep our house busy and lively. My wife does an awesome job of teaching our children while maintaining the house. She is my best friend and makes me a better person.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were already Latter Day Saints (LDS) when I was born, so I was raised in the church. While growing up, very few of my friends and aquaintances were LDS. This gave me plenty of opportunities to review, challenge, and share my beliefs. As a teenager, I had a very good friend who was very open about his dislike for my religion and would routinely bring scriptures from the Bible for me to study that would show me how wrong my religion was. He was determined to "save" me. I had several discussions with him about these scriptures and sincerely studied them. The more I read and studied and the more I discussed my faith with him, the stronger and more resolute my belief in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints became. Along with my studying, I prayed asking Heavenly Father to guide me and help me to know if the Church is true and if the Book of Mormon is true Scripture. I received my answer that it is true and have continued studying and strengthening my testimony since. I am so grateful for the teachings that I have received throughout my life. The Gospel brings my life such peace and joy, I really don't know how I'd cope without it.

How I live my faith

I currently serve with the Bishop in our local congregation. This responsibility allows me to work with and get to know other members of our church in the area. My faith has made me who I am. From teaching classes to leading different church activities, I have built invaluable skills and knowledge that helps me in all areas of my life. It has helped me to learn to work with and serve all manner of cultures and personalities. It is interesting how the more I try to serve and give back to Heavenly Father, the more He gives and blesses me.
