Hi I'm Keith Bailey

My name is Keith Bailey, I am a Husband and Father, I am a Business man, a Snowmobile racer and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am 29 years old, I have a beautiful wife and 3 little girls. My family is my life. I graduated from college with a bachelors degree in Business with an emphasis in accounting. I work for and international export company. I am a snowmobile racer on the Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Hillcilmb Association (RMSHA) circuit. I have been racing for 5 years now. The highlight of my racing career was to be invited to compete in the World Championship Hillclimb in Jackson WY last year. I also love to race dirt bikes, I have raced motocross, desert, and endurocross. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints all of my life. As i grew up I wanted to know for my self that the church was true. As a result I began to study the scriptures both the Bible and the Book of Mormon, as well as teachings of other faiths. As I studied these books of scripture I realized that the teaching that were in them went hand in hand, they supported each other. When studied together they just made sense. The Bible is a record of a people who lived a religion, it was a religion based upon ongoing revelation through Prophets and Apostles. It made sense to me that the true church of God would be set up in the same manner. The greatest thing to me is a promise given at the end of the Book of Mormon in Moroni 10:3-5. Paraphrasing it states that if you want to know if the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God then you should read it, and then pray about it. If you do this sincerely, meaning that you honestly desire to know and you are willing to make the necessary changes in your life when you find out if the book is true or not, God will answer your prayers and tell you if the Book is true. He does this through the power of the Holy Ghost. I have read the Book of Mormon, I have knelt in prayer and God has answered my prayers through the power of the Holy Ghost. I know for my self that the Book of Mormon is true. Because I know the Book of Mormon is true I also know that the Prophet who translated the book, Joseph Smith, was a true Prophet. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ was restored through him. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died for us and he was resurrected the third day. The Book of Mormon testifies of the living reality of your Savior Jesus Christ. He leads the Church today through his Prophet Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in all that I do. I am serving as a Scout Master for our local scout troop. I enjoy being involved in Scouting. I believe Scouting teaches young boys many values that seem to be lacking in the world today. The values that are taught in Scouting, such as honesty, integrity, service, love of God and love of Country, coincide with the teaching of our church. I served as a missionary for our church for two years in North West England and North Wales. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
