Hi I'm Kevin

I have been blessed with many talents and skills. I try to share them with others. It seems like I am constantly helping others.

About Me

I am working on my Master's degree in video game programming. I program video games, create 3D graphics and animations, and compose video game music and scores for short animated films. I love music. I have been playing the piano for a little over 30 years. I also love playing sports! Baseball is my favorite, but I also play basketball, tennis, and go bowling often. I like to stay physically fit by running, doing push-ups and sit-ups, and lifting weights. I am rarely sick. Staying in shape keeps me healthy and provides me with more than enough energy to do anything I want throughout the day. When I am not busy with work or homework, I am usually outdoors. I love being outdoors! I love mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, hunting, and fishing. It is really relaxing to get away from everything and enjoy nature. I love learning new things and want to be good at everything. I guess that make me very competitive, but I am really only competitive with myself (except when it comes to sports). I set high standards for myself and do not quit until I achieve those standards.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born to parents who were already Mormon. I am not sure if I would have been strong enough to overcome my pride and join the LDS church if my situation would have been different. I always went to church, paid tithing, lived the Word of Wisdom, read the Bible and Book of Mormon, and followed the teachings of the Savior when I was young. Looking back, I remember always feeling good inside while doing those things. However, it was not until I served a mission for the LDS church that I was truly converted to the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I knew that serving a mission was something that was expected of me. I did not choose to serve a mission because I knew the church was true and needed to share my testimony with others, but because I was afraid that others would think less of me if I did not serve a mission. I always assumed the church was true and figured that even if I was wrong, I at least knew that I was living my life in a way that would get me into heaven easy enough. I am now glad that I served a mission. Serving a mission was the best choice I have made in my life. I came to know that the gospel of Jesus Christ and the authority to act in God's name really was restored to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was about ready to quit and go home one day in the Missionary Training Center. I prayed and asked God for help. Later that day, the missionaries watched a video about the Savior and the restored gospel on this earth. Never have I felt so comforted and assured by the Holy Ghost that what I was doing was right and true. That was the day I was converted and knew the Mormon faith was true. My prayers were answered and my testimony and blessings in my life have grown ever since. I have witnessed many miracles performed by the Melchizedek Priesthood, restored to the LDS church, that I cannot deny. God will answer prayers. I know this is Christ's true church on earth and that is why I remain a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow my Savior's example. I am not even close to perfect and have to ask my Heavenly Father for forgiveness all the time, but I am constantly trying to do better. I do not smoke, drink, use drugs, or do things that can damage my body. I pray every day for my family, friends, and those around me who I know are in need of special blessings in their lives. I read from the scriptures each day. It is amazing how things always work out for me no matter what the situation may be just for taking the time each day to read from the scriptures. I try to be an example to others no matter where I go even though I fail miserably at times by not thinking before I act. I frequently put others before myself, but the feelings and blessings I receive from helping others are worth it. I attend church every week and use the talents that I have been blessed with to help others in attendance feel the Holy Ghost. I currently accompany the ward choir and play the piano during singing time for the younger children.
