Hi I'm Kevin

I am 18 years old. I am a senior in high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest of 10 kids. I love to play baseball, basketball, and golf. I enjoy hiking and camping. I play the piano and sing. I am going on a mission and then going to college at either Brigham Young University or Brigham Young University-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I have faith that all can be healed in His name. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His true church upon the earth. I know He and God the Father appeared to Joseph Smith. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I read my scriptures every day with my family and on my own. I go to the temple often. I serve others with the other young men that to my church. I will soon be leaving on a mission to Hong Kong China.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Kevin
They Law of Chastity is a commandment from God to abstain from all sexual relations before marriage. We believe that procreation is beautiful and sacred and should be reserved for marriage. By following this commandment, we show God our commitment to him and are blessed for our efforts. We take this commandment very seriously. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Not all Mormons are required to serve, however all young men are commanded to if able. They can choose, as we do with any of God's commandments, to follow it or to disobey. They can serve as young as 18-years-old if they are graduated from high school. Young women can also serve a mission if they so desire beginning at age 19, as well as retired couples.
