Hi I'm Kimball

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, a father, a father-in-law, and a grandfather. I am a son, a brother, a brother-in-law, and an uncle. I am an insurance company executive. And I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are active members of the church, and lovingly reared me as an active member of the church. As a boy and as a young man, I faithfully participated in the activities and organizations sponsored by the church. Yet there came a time late in my teenage years when I knew that I needed to know the truth for myself. I know that God answers prayers. I received an answer to my prayer regarding the truth many, many years ago, and I have sought ever since to live my life in accordance with the answer I received. I am a Christian, but I am an imperfect Christian who is very grateful for the atoning sacrifice of The Savior of the World, and for the opportunity he has provided me to repent and improve. As I seek to follow the teachings and commandments of Jesus Christ, I feel his influence and inspiration every day, and I find that I am more capable of reflecting his love in my interactions with others. My membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints offers me the support of millions of church members all over the world. I have visited church congregations in dozens of towns and cities over the years, and I have found brothers, sisters, and fellowship in each. What a great comfort and blessing! I can't imagine my life without The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

Individual members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are invited to serve in official and unofficial lay capacities as they are called or assigned by local leaders or general authorities of the church. I currently serve as the bishop (pastor) of our local congregation. I have enjoyed and appreciated all of the church callings and assignments I have received over the years. Each has stretched and challenged me, and each has taught me to love and serve the people within reach of my ministry. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a plan of action. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had--and continue to have--to put my faith into action. And I am grateful for all of those who have served me and my family so faithfully over the years.
