Hi I'm Kerry

I'm a husband and father of wonderful children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Although to some my life may seem ordinary, it has been full of challange and oppertunity for me. My family is most important to me. The bonds we build and experiences we share are precious. I love to be in nature and experience the beauties that are all around us. Boy Scouts and working with young men has been a big part of my life. A big dream of mine was to learn to fly. Six years ago i fulfilled that dream and got my privot pilot's license. I love to work with wood, enjoy art and good music.

Why I am a Mormon

During my early teens, two missionaries stopped by our home in Kansas to visit my mother who had joined the church a couple of years earlier. They taught my brother and i about the beliefs of the Church. There was a feeling of truth to what we learned, something that felt familiar. Later I put the teachings to the test and asked Heavenly Father if it was true. I knew by His answer that it was. Since that time i have learned many more things about the Church and Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. I know by that same test that they are true. The Church and my understanding of the love of Jesus Christ for each of us has meant more than words can express to me in my life. I'm so thankful for a wonderful life with a knowledge of the Savior and his teachings and love in it. I'm so greatful to have the Lord's church on earth with a prophet and apostles to lead me. One of the things that helps me the most to understand life is a book. As i have read the Book of Mormon it has helped me to understand and feel the love of Jesus Christ. It is the writings of ancient prophets on this continent, but more than that it is a witness of Jesus Christ. It has helped me to know Him better and have a love for Him. Not just to know about Him, but to know Him and feel his love in my life. I know that Heavenly Father has a purpose for us being here on earth and he wants us to be happy. Really happy! And there is a way for us to do that. The Bible helps us to do that also. Together they stand as a witness of a loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ who both love us very much.

How I live my faith

At this time I have been asked by my Church leaders to serve by working with the Young Men. This can be challenging at times but also very rewarding to try to teach these young men to grow up to make wise choices in their lives and to be good husbands and fathers, and to serve and love others. I have always felt that if we believe in something that we should live like we believe in it. I am far from perfect but trying to redirrect my efforts every day to be better.
