Hi I'm Kevin

I grew up in Las Vegas. I'm a singer/songwriter in a local band. I'm studying economics. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I write songs a lot and preform at local outlets with my band, Vices. I'm attending college right now at Brigham Young University. I'm working toward a bachelors degree in economics. After that I'm planning on getting an MBA. I like to spend a lot of time with friends just joking around and talking about stuff. My biggest goal right now is to keep a stable family life and go on a mission for my church. I recently received a mission call to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am called to labor in the Chile, Vina del Mar mission. For two years all of my time will be spent serving others and sharing with them the message of this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I prayed about it and I got a good feeling. That's only the short story though. I didn't get an answer at first. I was always told that that the church was true and I was really confused as to why i couldn't get an answer for myself. If I did get an answer how would I know if it was from God. I was really confused and a little disheartened. But, I kept praying. I had to know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon and the rest of the church was true. I read the promise found in Moroni 10 every night for a week and I was still not certain if I was really getting an answer from God. One day as I was reading this promise I noticed that one phrase didn't read like I thought. "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true;"(Moroni 10:4) I had always thought it said to pray and ask if the Book of Mormon was true. But, that's not what it says. It says to pray and ask God if it's not true. So, that's what I did. I pleaded to God, asking if the Book of Mormon wasn't true. I received a reasoning in my mind. I felt that the Book of Mormon couldn't be not true. So, it had to be true. It's kind of weird, but that's how it worked for me.

How I live my faith

Recently I taught a group of young men in my church. I stood in front of them asked questions and started discussions about our belief and our behavior. I also would go visit five individual members and ask them if things were going well and if they needed any help in any area of their life. I did this with a partner and afterwards we would share with them a short message and a prayer and then we would leave.
