Hi I'm Kevin

I'm a senior at Mesa high, I'm in the school swing dance club, I'm the president and founder of the GOSPEL club, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary in the MTC training to serve in the Fiji- Suva mission learning the beautiful launguage of Fijian. I will be leaving the MTC for the mission field on the 5th of May

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this church, and for that I am very greatful. I live in a place where I am surrounded by other mormons, so it has always been easy for me to live off of other's testimony. The summer of 2010, my dad took me to a lot of the church history sites back east. We went to the sacred grove, and there my dad bore his testimony to me. Then he challenged me to find my own testimony. I have since found that testimony. I found that testimony first through scripture reading and prayer, and it has only been added upon through seminary and church attendance. I have a testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. I know that we can pray to a father in heaven that loves us. I know that the scriptures are the word of God, as are the words of the Prophets and apostles. I know that our father loves us, and as we do all we can do, he will help us reach exaltation.

How I live my faith

I love the title of this section: "How I live by faith" I believe that to have strength in your faith, you have to live by it. How I live by my faith has recently changed. I have recently taken on the goal to listen to a conference talk every day. I also have the goal of reading scriptures and praying daily. I read in the old testament before I do my homework, then I read in the book of mormon before I go to bed. I also attend seminary, mutual, and church on sundays. However, my favorite way of living my faith is through the GOSPEL club at my highschool. The GOSPEL club is a club I started at my highschool that allows students to share scriptures and their testimonies. This clubs allows me to have spiritual discussions with my friends, which increases the bonds I have with them and helps us all come closer to Christ. Generally, religion is the most important thing, so I believe it is what you should spend the most time on.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Kevin
To me, the Book of Mormon is another resource I have to come closer to Heavenly father. The Book of Mormon is a source of learning. It teaches us to be humble, patient, loving, kind, charitable, and so on. It challenges us to come unto repentance and to live our religion. The Book of Mormon is something I can read everyday to recieve strength and blessings. The Book of Mormon helps me find answers to my prayers. The Book of Mormon is the word of God.
