Hi I'm Kent

I'm a self-proclaimed beach-lover living near the Rocky Mountains with my beautiful wife and kids. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in California with six brother and sisters. I am now living in Colorado with my own insurance business. I love spending time with my wife and kids watching them in their various sports activities. All of my grand-parents were all, and even my mom was, born in another country: England, Yugoslavia, and Germany, so I feel a deep connection to Europe. I served as a missionary in Kobe, Japan and I deeply love that country and it's people. I speak Japanese, a little German, and I am trying to learn Cantonese on my own(easier said than done.) I enjoy learning about and visiting other countries and cultures to gain an appreciation and insight into different viewpoints and priorities. I love any type of water sports: swimming at the beach, motor-boating, jet-skiing, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up living by the teachings of the restored gospel. I felt the influence of God through the Spirit in my life. Through those experiences, I was able to gain a relationship with God of my own through prayer independent pondering and study of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Of course I relied on many people for support, but ultimately I had to develop my own testimony of God. I am a firm believer in prayer and the answers you can receive from God. I know there will always be answers; they can come in form of "yes," "no," "it doesn't matter," and "wait." But knowing that I have a loving Father in Heaven looking out for my best interest provides me with the comfort I need when dealing with life's struggles.

How I live my faith

I love working with the youth organization. I am the scoutmaster for our troop and enjoy being with them. There are so many challenges that they face at school and in life at a young age and I love being able to guide and assist them.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Being chaste in my marriage has provided a greater sense of security and intimacy knowing that we are each devoted to each other. It is the opposite of the insecurity and instability of the alternative. Show more Show less

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

For me, it is continual guidance, comfort, and inspiration. Often these attributes work together to bring a greater sense of peace in my life. There are so many life decisions to make. So, when I face a new challenge I appreciate the guidance and comfort of the Holy Ghost as I make decisions. The Holy Ghost also inspires me to pursue new things and improve myself in ways that I wouldn't normally have considered on my own. The wisdom of this inspiration is self-evident after standing the test of time. Show more Show less
