Hi I'm Kevin

I grew up in Utah. My heritage is from Brasil. I'm a student at BYU. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have lived my whole life in Utah. Because of this I am an avid skier. I'm really active and enjoy pretty much any sport. I love soccer as well. I love music and play the guitar and piano. I also sing. I graduated high school in 2011 and am now a junior at BYU. I'm majoring in Accounting. Both my parents were born and raised in Brasil. I am a second generation member of the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because of the happiness that I have from it. Everything that we are taught in this church helps me to learn who I am and how I can be happy. Both my parents were converts but I had the opportunity to be born into the church. When I was in my late teens I decided that I needed to know that this church is true. When I was alone I prayed to my heavenly father and begged to know if the things I was being taught were true. I'm really grateful for a father in heaven who loves his children and cares for us. I know that this church is true. I know that what I'm learning is what God wants me to learn.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following all of the things I'm taught. I try and be the best that I can be. I try and set an example for my friends at school by not swearing or not doing drugs. I follow all of my Father in Heaven's commandments and trust that he will show me where I can help others.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

For me one of the easiest and most helpful ways that I have come to know my Heavenly Father is through prayer. Prayer is a simple act that we can use to talk directly to our Father in Heaven. Asking him to help you feel his presence or his love has helped me tremendously. One of the other ways that I have been able to come to know him is through obedience. When I am obedient, I feel the spirit and that helps me know that my Father in Heaven is paying attention to my life. This helps me come closer to my God. Show more Show less
