Hi I'm Kevin

I grew up in Wyoming. I play the cello. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music and technology. I have played the cello for nearly 7 years and played the drums for 3 years. Meanwhile, I have enjoyed repairing and upgrading computers for myself and other people - just recently I have been able to use this to support my income. It's very enjoyable and useful. I like solving problems and helping people. I also like to draw and write - I illustrated parts of my journals with pictures of temples and trees that related to the subject matter.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and most of my siblings served missions; however, I went through a stage of my life where I doubted even the existence of God and the truth of the Gospel - I really like science and I thought that it contradicted what I was taught in church. While I was going through this, I had a lot of trouble in a lot of areas of my life. Often, I was left frustrated and confused - I wanted to find peace. One night, I was so upset and confused about what I believed, I went to Moroni 10 and found the promise that he gives: "By the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." I asked if the Book of Mormon was true, and if there truly was a Father in Heaven that cared about me. At first, I was very doubtful I would receive an answer, but as I asked the question, I felt an overwhelming feeling of peace that was at such a contrast with what I had felt before - in a matter of seconds. Since then, I have had several more witnesses that the Book of Mormon is true. Science and religion don't contradict each other; in fact, God speaks of having two witnesses to establish the truth of His word. I think of science and religion as each of my two eyes - with only one eye I see a different image than I would see with both eyes.

How I live my faith

I taught a class of young single adults around my age about the Gospel - it was a very enjoyable experience and I learned a lot about the Gospel of Jesus Christ from teaching it. It was very enjoyable being around other young single adults my age and talking about college and other future plans. While attending the young single adult ward, I had the opportunity to participate in a religious class called Institute. It was so interesting to be involved with people my age and up to their thirties. It seems like no matter how old you are, the Gospel can still teach you.
