Hi I'm Keaton

I grew up in the Escalante, Utah. I am going into the National Guard. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to be active! Anything that involves running around and using my strength! I was a wrestler in school and since then I have always tried to be the strongest I can be and always be able to go the distance. I love being around my family and have a strong sense that family is the most important thing in this world! My family is always competing against each other and yet we help each other get better! Nothing gets me to be any happier than making my family happy and we as a family have found happiness and joy in sports, out doors, just being around each other, and the gospel! I love going out there and truly putting my heart in what ever it is that I am doing! I never go into womething with an attitude of whatever! If it is something that would cause that kind of attitude then it isn't something worth doing! I really don't like being crowded or living in big cities. I love the country where there is so much wild life and the peace & quiet that I love! It is truly amazing! That is probably why I also love hunting!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and even though people say that it is different being born into the church it isn't! Our Heavenly Father tries and tests those who were born into this church, to see if they truly have faith! I have had many trials and it seems when I failed and slipped, I would barely get back up then another trial would happen. Earlier in my life I overcame a trial that I thought was going to be the hardest one in my life and then my brother died. I was in complete shock and nothing seemed worth doing because my life was changed and everything seemed pointless. But then I remembered that in our church, God's church has the truth that life doesn't end and that no-one is really truly gone! I will have my family back all of my family and it is because of Christ my savior and he has established this church!

How I live my faith

I have lived my faith by always following the standards of my faith! I have had friends that are always telling me that they know that I am a Mormon because of the way I act! I don't cuss, smoke, drink, or anything that is immoral! I am now recently sharing the gospel with everyone that I can! I work with those that are searching for truth and that are coming to know that this is the true church!

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Our Church was originally organized by Jesus Christ. We believe that after Christ's death that his church eventually was taken from the earth. But in the spring of 1820 a 14 year old boy named Joseph Smithh prayed to know which church was true. In response to his prayer God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to him. Just like the prophets of ancient times Joseph was chosen to restore God's truths on Earth once more. On April 6, 1830 Joseph Smith restored Christ's true church and the church has grown since then to almost all nations! Show more Show less
