Hi I'm Kevin

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, a father, a salesman a mediocre tri-athelete and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. It is a big part of who I am. My grandparents were members of the church and their parents were too. A lot of how I lived was tradition and habit until my teenage years. That's where I had to figure things out on my own and know for myself if all of this time and commitment to religion was worth it. I wanted to make my parents proud, but at the same time I had to live my own life and do it my way. I spent a summer in Valdez Alaska working in the fishing industry. There my eyes were definitely opened as to how people outside of little Rigby Idaho live. Shortly after returning home from there I left on a mission to Uruguay. Two years walking around focusing on others and serving complete strangers really changed my life. I love the people I met there and the experience is something I hold very near and dear to my heart. That two year mission did more for my life to that point then the previous 19 years. The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints just makes sense to me. Everything about it has a reason and a purpose. I know for a fact that this church is lead by my Savior Jesus Christ. I have felt the Holy Ghost bear witness countless times in my life when I have worked to do my part in his church. I am no where near perfect, but this church and the teachings therein point me in the way to perfection. It helps me be a better husband, father and member in the community. It has brought me so much happiness in my life. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and hope that I may live as he would have me live and one day say to me well done thou good and faithful servant.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily. Being in sales I constantly meet with people. Most people that I do business with know that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It comes up when I tell them where I graduated from college. BYU-Idaho. At which point the topic gets changed or they ask me a few questions about the church. I hope that anyone I work with will always feel comfortable enough around me to be able to ask questions about my church. It is not my place to change people's beliefs or anything like that I simply like to answer questions about my faith as not too many people know much about my church. I have had some pretty interesting questions about my faith over the years. I feel I have gotten to know a lot of my clients on a more personal level in some of these discussions we have had. Like politics religion can turn heated as people can become very passionate about their beliefs. I hope to never offend or hurt anyone by talking about their church or my own. In the end I believe we are all here on this earth to help each other out. I know I have gained strength from a lot of people outside of my faith from their religious comments. I am currently the Scoutmaster and work mainly with the 12 to 13 year old young men in our congregation. We are striving to have the boys lead the program and just be there as a resource they can use. I have worked with the Youth in my church for over 10 years now and am amazed by how well these young men can rise up and lead when we allow them. I have been taught many lessons in life just by watching the boys. My role as a father has been the most amazing experience in my life. I thought I had children so my wife and I could teach them all that we know and they could make a difference in the world, but they teach me every day. They latch on to the gospel of Jesus Christ and remind me every day of what I am doing wrong so I can fix it. Children definitely keep you in line. I love them for it.
