Hi I'm Kendall

I'm a Fly Fisherman, a Mountain biker, a Real Estate Appraiser, a husband, a father....and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kendall. I was born and raised in Blackfoot, Idaho. I met my beautiful wife in 2005. We were married in the beautiful Mesa, Arizona temple. We live in the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona, and we love it here. We have been blessed with two amazing little boys. I am a real estate appraiser, and my wife is able to stay at home and raise the kids. I enjoy pretty much everything outdoors including: Fly fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, mountain biking, geocaching,etc. I also enjoy cooking. I have recently gotten into Dutch oven cooking, a skill I have acquired from my dad. I served a mission for my church in Brasilia, Brazil where I learned to speak portuguese. I love my little family, and am blessed to come from a large family. I am a very blessed man.

Why I am a Mormon

I was very blessed to be born into the church. I was surrounded by a large concentration of LDS people in Southeastern Idaho growing up. My dad was a convert to the church, and was my spiritual idol growing up. Even if you are raised in a mormon family, there comes a time in your life when you have to quit "riding the coat tails" of your families beliefs and get your own testimony of the gospel. I was in High School trying to decide between going straight into College after graduation, or to go on a mission. I did a lot of praying, and read the scriptures. By doing this, I gained a testimony for myself that the church was true. This gave me so much joy, that I decided to serve a mission. A month after graduation, I was called to serve in the Brasilia, Brazil mission. This was a very challenging, but wonderful experience that built me up for the rest of my life. I taught many wonderful people, and met some of the most genuine caring people over there. My mission solidified my testimony that this is the true church on the earth today. I am so proud to call myself a mormon. This is a title that I proudly take on.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day, and not just on Sunday. To put it shorty, I treat others they way that I would want to be treated myself. I am very accepting of other religions, and I have many friends from outside my faith that I am close with. My wife and I teach a 9 year old aged class on Sundays, and teach them about the gospel. We enjoy this so much, and look forward to it every week. I am happy to share my faith with others, but I won't argue my faith with those who don't believe. I am so happy to live the Mormon faith.
