Hi I'm Kevin

I grew up in Tustin, California. I am a Civil Engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of six and a grandfather of ten. I own a construction company, and I am a professional engineer. I love spending time with my family. I love music and the sciences. I love to spend time outdoors biking, hiking and camping.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because over a lifetime of study I have found that an inner voice I call the Holy Ghost has spoken to my heart that the teachings and doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are God's teachings. While I love many people from a diverse amount of religions and am pleased that they are searching for the truth, I have a deep and abiding feeling that I have found the truth and that truth is that God continues to speak to His children and show his love through providing modern day prophets and apostles. I love the scriptures which in the church include the Old and New Testament, and new modern day books of inspiration adn revelation, including an account of the ancient people of the American continent known as the Book of Mormon. I believe that I am the happiest when I abide by the teachings found in these scriptures and taught by the leaders of the Mormon church. I believe that when I abide by all of its principles is when God is the most pleased with me as well. I have found that my association with fellow members of the Church brings me comfort, assurance and opportunities to serve and be served. I have found the Mormon people to be very accepting, understanding and helpful.

How I live my faith

The church affords many avenues of service, within and without the church. For example, as an adult member of the church I have the opportunity to fellowship two or three specific families and visit them regularly for friendship and to be available to serve them in anything, just like a fellow family member. The church has allowed me to serve in administrative capacities to organize meetings and to speak publicly. It has given me the opportunity to serve the youth. I particularly enjoy the service opportunities in the Boy Scouts of America, which also has given me the opportunity to work with many people not of our faith that have similar interests and values.
