Hi I'm Howard Keith

I am 18 years old. I am preparing to serve a full time mission from approximately August 2013 to August 2015.

About Me

I am a senior in High School. I am a priest and preparing to serve a full time mission from August 2013 to August 2015. I have one sibling, an older sister. I plan to study pre-medicine when I return from my mission. I enjoy learning, I have been my high schools class president for four years, I have run varsity cross country and track for four years. I am in choir and newspaper. I am an Eagle Scout. I enjoy camping and watching old classic films.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a dedicated testimony of Christ and the gospel. I have seen the atonements power in my life and the lives of others. I have tested my faith and shared my faith as I've grown. The greatest part of my testimony is the power of prayer. When faced with a difficult decision I have found that by finding a quiet place alone with my Heavenly father I can receive marvelous and clear answers to my questions. Equally important are my experiences when not alone and in need of help from my heavenly father, I have received help in the moments I have needed answers when faced with abrupt situations. I know that the Lord hears my prayers. I know that the book of Mormon is full of thruths that can bless our lives along with the Old and New Testament. I know that President Thomas S. Monson leads the world today in receiving revelation from God concerning the world. I know that each prophet spoken of in the Bible, Book of Mormon, and in the history of the restored Church of Jesus Christ were the direct link from earth to the heavens in receiving revelation from God during their lives. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints represents the fullness of Gods blessings to his kingdom today and that through these blessings, the ordinances of the Temple, of the Atonement, of the Preisthood, all people can be saved and live forever with God. I know that if I am worthy and if my faith is great enough, all of the desires of my heart will be given unto me.

How I live my faith

I love to talk about my beliefs with others and find a peace in knowing that others know who I am and what I stand for. I find that in standing firm I am protected from temptations when others know my standards. I live in a great and accepting community and find the gospel to only be a privilege to live, as well as a privilege to share. I currently serve as my Priest Quorums Secretary.
