Hi I'm Kevin

I grew up in Idaho. I'm a family man. I am a business owner. I love music. I play the guitar. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have 5 amazing children. 4 girls and a boy. They range in ages 8 to 19. I love to see them grow and become the greatness I see in them. I love to see them happy. I love to learn and do new things. I suppose this is an important trait I use as a business owner in computer technology which is always changing. I started to learn to play the guitar 5 years ago. It is fun for me to pick it up and learn a new playing style or a riff from a favorite song from when I was younger. I play the acoustic guitar and sometimes on an electric guitar. I like to learn to cook food that is challenging and try to perfect it until those who eat it can't help but enjoy it. The foods I work on improving are my Hawaiian burgers, roasted turkey, hand-tossed pizza, donuts, baby-back ribs and grilled steak. I keep this list to a minimum because I want to keep improving on them so they become fabulous! This is also the same technique I use with my children. They are all unique and it is fulfilling to help them improve individually so they become fabulous too!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon, which is the reason I remain one to this day. I was born into a Mormon family with parents who were great examples to me. They taught me to care and serve other people. They taught me that what matters most is what I am on the inside because that is what God sees when he looks upon me. I was taught that God is a loving God and even though I make mistakes, as long as I continually seek Him in prayer, He will help me and fill me with the strength to overcome through Jesus Christ. I love being a Mormon because you are taught the essential principles on how to have your own personal relationship with Heavenly Father. Something that no one can come and take from me. I am a Mormon because I was able to establish this relationship and it is the most precious thing of my life. Life is hard. It is full of challenges and disappointments. Things never seem to happen the way I plan them. But having this relationship with Heavenly Father is like an anchor. It is an anchor of stability for me. It is the source of my strength. It feeds me hope in the future. It fosters a desire to want to help other people instead of my own natural tendency to think of myself. I have found that these principles of the Mormon faith are real and complete. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon creates many opportunities for me to get involved in my community through voluntary service. From community cleanup projects to participating in activities which bring diverse people together, or helping people who have had tragedies or disasters brought upon them. I also have opportunities to serve others who share my faith and help them learn the things I have learned. Sometimes I am able to serve and help them in a large group setting. Other times I am able to help others in a one on one personal manner. I love being able to see other people lifted and strengthened. This is a very rewarding part of my life. Serving other people is one way I live my faith. Another way is maintaining my personal relationship with Christ through the study of scripture and personal prayer. Because of the many struggles I have in life, I get a rich fulfillment in connecting with Heavenly Father and receiving profound wisdom from Him. An understanding that is so much larger than myself and it is always accompanied with a tremendous flood of love and hope. I love to experience this! It is always such a remarkable experience to me.
