Hi I'm Keegan

Hello my name is Keegan. I loves adventure. From kayaking & bridge jumping in the summer to sledding in the winter! I am a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Keegan and this is my story! I was born of goodly parents, being the 5th of 7. I grew up being very shy and timid and as I grew older, I grew out of that. My junior year of high school, I started to try out new things; like kayaking, swimming, bridge jumping, and gardening to name a few. I enjoyed learning new skills and trying out new things. My parents got divorced when I was 10. This is one of the hardest things I have ever been through. I was just entering my 6th grade year, and I didn't know where to turn to. So I started playing football. And it has been my passion ever since that first snap. I was hooked. This grew to become my pride and joy. I would work hard in the off season to get bigger, faster, stronger, for my team. This all leading up to my senior year. Where in our 3rd game of the year I hyper extended my elbow and was told I would never play football again. I saw what I thought was the best thing in the world disappear. That was until I left on my mission. I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This has been one of the greatest decisions I have ever made. I have grown to love my Heavenly Father more and seen how much he can have an impact on our lives. Also my Savior and Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. I am teaching people about how he has atoned for all of our sins and that they can be forgiven. And now I am on the Lord's team!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that shares the same beliefs I do. Because of the example of my parents and older siblings, I went to church with them. At the age of 8 I decided for myself that I wanted to be baptized. It wasn't my parents decision, as we believe that a child must be at the age of accountability before they are baptized. Because of the correct principles and doctorine I learned, I continued to attend church. I saw how much happier my family was because of our beliefs. We believe that families can be together forever. That through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we will return to live with our father in Heaven again. I saw my grandparents and 3 of my cousins go on missions. This had a big impact on why I wanted to go. I looked up to them and wondered why they always say a mission is the best two years of your life. Then my brother Beau decided to go on his mission at age 24. This was also another reason I wanted to go. I saw the change in him and wanted the same thing to happen to me. So on February 21, 2013 I received my mission call to the England Manchester Mission. I was so excited to go serve in the country that my family origanlly came from.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A mission has taught me how to be more loving and patient. Also how to help others come unto Christ. As missionaries we go out everyday from 10am to 9pm teaching others about Jesus Christ and his restored church on the earth this day. We share scriptures from the Book of Mormon, hence the nickname Mormons. We go out 2 by 2 inviting others to come unto Christ. We don't force anyone to join our church or make them do things for our own benefit. We invite them to do things, because we know how much it can bless their lives. One of the greatest blessings I have ever received is a family that shares the same beliefs as I do. I was raised in a home where family was the most important. I was raised up in the church, but everyone must gain for themselves a testimony to know if this is the only true church on the earth. I gained this testimony as I read The Book of Mormon and prayed about the messages that it contained. Because I know that this church is true, I go around sharing it with others. That way they can receive more of God's blessings.
