Hi I'm Keith

I coached high school wrestling and football for over 37 years, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have seven wonderful children and fifteen grandchildren, with three on the way! We remodeled our old house that was built around 1925 by ourselves. The past thirty eight years I have coached wrestling and football while teaching high school science and physical education. Thanks to many great assistants my teams have been very successful winning our share of championships. I have a 1952 Oldsmobile Rocket 88, that I want to restore sitting in back of my house. My wife and I love traveling to see our children and grand children. They are what makes life.

Why I am a Mormon

After reading the Book of Mormon I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was twenty-one. Since that time God has blessed our family. The Church supports our efforts to raise our children to be good citizens. I have found that the more gospel principles I can incorporate into my family, my job, and coaching the more successful all have become. The Book of Mormon has had a tremendous effect upon me. I know it is God's word just as I know the Bible is.

How I live my faith

While a member of the Church I served as a Scout Master for many years for our local Boy Scout troop. For thirteen years we camped out nine times a year and went to summer camp. Seeing these young men today is worth all the time and effort. Service in the Church has made me more aware of the service Jesus Christ gave to all mankind.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

The principle of giving one-tenth of our income to God has blessed my family over the years. This money is used for the necessary operations of the church such as constructing buildings and missionary work. As Malachi said, He has opened the windows of heaven to our family. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was written by prophets in the new world. It contains a record for the people that lived in the new world areas before Columbus. Jesus said he had other sheep to visit. It was these people in the new world that he came to after his resurrection. The Book of Mormon tells of Christ, how he is our redeemer, of His coming to the Americas and the people that lived here and their struggles. Show more Show less
