Hi I'm Kevin Gardner

I'm a runner, a Spanish translator, and a bookworm. My wife is awesome, and I'm grateful to be Mormon.

About Me

I've always enjoyed intellectual pursuits, even as a kid. I discovered in high school that I love running, and have run several times a week ever since then. I'm also a super nice guy, which I'm sure is one of the many reasons my wife fell in love with me :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe God wants me to be. That is the root of my decision to stick with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints my entire life. And this decision has brought me, and others around me, countless positive experiences.

How I live my faith

I reflect each day on Jesus through prayer, meditation, and scripture study. I try to understand Him a little better each day, and more importantly, I try to become like him a little more each day. But in my frailty, I often fail in that quest. I don't understand everything about God, nor am I flawless in living what I believe. This makes me even more grateful for the Savior's message of repentance and forgiveness through the atonement; that He cares about me no matter what; that he is compassionate and understanding enough to give me countless second chances; that I have all eternity to get it right. That is the essence of redemption, and it's for everyone.
