Hi I'm Kevin

I love Legos. I'm a computer scientist. I enjoy reading historical biographies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy creating things. When I was young, I loved to construct buildings, cars, and space ships with Legos. Now I'm studying for a master’s degree in computer science. I'm focusing on teaching computers to understand and interpret things written in human languages. Playing the piano, particularly my own compositions, is one of my favorite ways to relax. I like to read historical biographies and other books. I enjoy playing board games and watching videos with my family and friends. I am married to a wonderful woman who helps me to be the best that I can.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a teenager I wondered if God really existed and if I would one day be judged by Him. I had been raised in a Mormon family so I knew of the promise in the Book of Mormon that if I would read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it was true that I would receive an answer by the power of the Holy Ghost (Moroni 10:3-5). For several years I studied and prayed and sought to repent of my sins but I didn’t feel like I had received an answer—I wondered whether the lack of an answer was my answer, that it wasn’t true. While I was attending a youth camp I watched a video clip about the creation of the world and the atonement of Jesus Christ. While I was watching it I felt that God knew who I was and that He loved me. Instantaneously my doubt was replaced with a conviction of those two principles, that I am a child of God and that He loves me. I still had to study and pray to receive a witness from the Holy Ghost of other principles of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, but having been diligent in study and prayer and receiving that initial witness has been my anchor and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I believe that God is our Heavenly Father, the Father of our spirits, making us all brothers and sisters. Knowing that, I strive to treat everyone with courtesy and respect. I communicate with Heavenly Father through prayer every morning and evening. I study the scriptures every day to learn and remember what God has commanded us, His children, to do to be happy. I attend worship services every Sunday, and volunteer some of my time each week to serve in my local congregation to keep the church's records up-to-date.
