Hi I'm Kevin

I'm loving life and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Fallon, Nevada for basically all of my life and have always been a member of the church. I am currently serving a mission in the Orlando, Florida area. I love everything about it! It is pretty awesome and hot. Before my mission I went to a year of college at BYU in Provo. I am hoping to someday graduate from BYU and get some type of business degree. I want to have a sweet job with something to do with sports and business. I love sports! Basketball, golf, and snowboarding are my favorites. Unlike a lot of families inside of the church, I am an only child. It is pretty awesome and I really like it. My faith, family, and friends are the center of life and always will be!

Why I am a Mormon

There are so many blessings that come with being a Mormon! The knowledge of families being together forever, having a modern day prophet on the earth, having the bible and Book of Mormon, being able to serve a mission, and being able to center my life and religion around my family are just some of them. People always say that Mormon's have too many rules, but I have found that the commandments or rules that we have actually are what allows us to have true happiness. It isn't always the easiest thing, but it is the most rewarding and brings the greatest joy. The commandments that we live don't restrict us, but actually enable us to be able to do more in life. At a young age I could see the blessings that Heavenly Father bestowed upon my family with when they were following the examples and teachings of Jesus Christ. I could see how if they put God first in their life, all things seemed to just "work out". I knew that I wanted to raise a family like I had been raised and I knew that being in the church was the way to do it. I always felt the church was right because of the good feelings that it gave me and because of the spirit that was present in my life and the life of others.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission trying to help other's find faith in Jesus Christ and also trying to help people find more happiness. Living my faith is something that takes constant effort 24/7. I try to stay as close to my Heavenly Father as possible by following His son, Jesus Christ, and His examples that He set for me. Sincere prayer, scripture study, going to church, and being an example of a disciple of Jesus Christ are things that I am striving to do. I always find myself falling short of perfection, but I am grateful for the knowledge of the Atonement and how I can be forgiven for all of my shortcomings. I know that Christ constantly helps pick me up when I fall, brushes me off and gives me the strength to keep pushing forward. My faith is centered in Jesus Christ and I know He loves me. He is what keeps me going.
