Hi I'm Kevin

I am a husband and father. I love music and attending concerts. I'm a Husker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Nebraska and moved to Colorado when I was 11. As a teenager, I got interested in cars and music. I have attended more hard rock and heavy metal concerts than I can remember. I met my wife, for the first time, cruising Main Street, when we were in high school. Eventually, after failed attempts at college for both of us, we met again and dated for 5 years before we married. Early in our marriage, we were both selfish and it caused us to not be as close as we wanted to be. We moved to a new town and were looking for a place to worship. We were introduced to the gospel by our neighbors and decided that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints would be good for us and good for our children. Being baptized and converting to the gospel has been the best thing we have ever done.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife and I met our new neighbors, who were LDS, and started going to Ward functions, like picnics, Pioneer Days celebrations and Halloween and Christmas parties. Even though we drank alcohol and coffee, our new friends never judged us. As we spent more and more time with our neighbors and the people we met at the activities we attended, we decided that joining the church would be good for our family. After being baptized, I took advantage of every opportunity to serve and was able to meet and spend time with lots of members and was able to learn more about the gospel. Spending time with the good members our of ward and serving side by side with them, strengthened my testimony that I made the right decision to be baptized.

How I live my faith

I am involved with the young men's program which means I get to teach the young men on Sundays as well as lead them in Boy Scouts during our activity nights as well as organized camp outs. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints believes in the Boy Scout program and has aligned the young men's program with Scouting because of the things that the boys learn through Scouting. My son is one of the young men under my charge and that allows me to spend quality time with him, teaching him the gospel as well as principles of Scouting.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Why would Heavenly Father stop talking to his children? Why would he leave us alone? I believe we have a prophet on the earth today and I follow his counsel. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

The principle of tithing comes from the Old Testament. If everyone realized that everything we have comes from Heavenly Father and believed in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and followed this principle, there would be less greed and less dependance on the government for welfare as there would be more living within our means.
