Hi I'm Kevin

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I live in Layton, Utah with my wife and our two dogs. I work for a software company, doing computer-ish things. I love to sing, listen to music, and spend time not working, whenever possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe the Church teaches me how to follow all of God's commandments. If something's worth doing -- and it most certainly is, in this case -- then it's worth doing the best job possible.

How I live my faith

I try every day to be a better person than I was the day before. I'm so happy to have a testimony that Jesus Christ lives, that he is my Savior, and that he has made it possible for me to be forgiven of my sins. I believe that both Jesus Christ, and God the Father, love every single one of us, and I love learning how to be like Them.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Our Heavenly Father knew that in order to progress spiritually while here on Earth, we had to be allowed to make both good and bad choices. And because none of us are perfect, He knew we'd make mistakes. Because He is perfect, in order to return to His presence after this life, He also knew there had to be a process by which we could be made perfect. All of our sins would need to be paid for, in some way, or else we'd never be able to live with Him again. None of us would be able to pay the price ourselves, otherwise there'd be no growth. Only someone that was perfect, like our Heavenly Father, could do this for us. His best Son, Jesus Christ, offered to do what we could not, and settle all debts of sin. He would save us in a way that only He could. He would be our Savior. In order to qualify for this perfecting process we have to work on becoming increasingly obedient children of our Father in Heaven. This means, in part, asking His forgiveness for our past mistakes, losing the desire to sin, and following the teachings of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The need for growth is why we're here, it's why we need a Savior, and it's how we prove ourselves worthy of Salvation. Show more Show less
