Hi I'm Kevin

I have lived in multiple states across the country, providing the opportunity it be involved with The Church of Jesus Christ of L

About Me

I am married with a great wife and three kids. As is common with everyone, it is a challenge to balance all of the demands related to family, work, and church service. I enjoy doing things together as a family. This includes just playing with the kids, hiking, camping, or playing soccer or basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life, but as with anyone there comes a time when you need to decide for yourself what you believe and want from life. Religion was something that was never forced on me by my parents. As I grew older I tried to do the things I was taught as a member of the church, and through this I gradually developed a testimony. I can not necessarily point to one single experience to explain why I am a member of the church. By following the things I am taught I have seen not only my life benefit, but also the lives of my family. I appreciate the teachings about the importance of the family and the knowledge that the family is an essential part of God’s plan for us not only in this life but also after this life. I still have questions and face challenges to my faith, but when I think back on the experiences of my life I have no doubt this is true.

How I live my faith

One of the things I appreciate about the church is that it is a church served by volunteers and not paid leaders. They serve people within the church and out of the church in many ways to provide support, service, and learning opportunities. The leader of our local church (Ward) is not paid for his service and he works with two counselors to help with the administration of the organizations and activities within the Ward. I was asked to support our local church be serving as one of these counselors. I appreciate the opportunity to serve with many great people who give of their time to help young children, youth, and adults. Their service is not for selfish reasons, but a sincere desire to help others and follow Christ’s example and teachings.
