Hi I'm Kegan

I grew up in Maryland. I love programming, and games of any kind. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am majoring in Computer Science. I really like programming video games to share with my friends. At times, we would get together at the library, and play different games. I also joined a robotics club in High school. I recently began to love different forms of Pop music. I am currently serving a Mission in New Jersey.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a wonderful family where both of my parents were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I personally had to decide for my self if I was going to join His Church though. As you may know, we are not baptized as babies, and are given the choice to be when we get older. I chose for myself to be baptized when I was eight years old. At this point in my life, I knew that I did not know everything about the church, or how it functioned. However, I did know for myself that the Church was true. I knew for a surety that we have a living Prophet on the earth today. I have had trials in my life, as everyone has, but I know that our Heavenly Father loves each one of us personally, and that he has put me here in this world to grow. I know of our Heavenly Father's love for us as individuals. My faith has only become stronger by facing trials in my life.

How I live my faith

I am active in church and in my life. I attend church every sunday. I was also invovled in Boy Scouts and gained the rank of an Eagle scout. I have encouraged friends and others to become more involved in the community. I have brought friends to service activities and have participated in other's eagle scout projects. Service is important to me. I really have begun to love the scriptures as I have seen how the principles contained in them have helped others in their lives, and I have seen them also change my life for the better.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are important to all of us. Some of our most important learning experiences take place in the home. My family is important to me, because I continue to learn from my parent's example, and I continue to learn valuable life skills as I communicate with my sisters. Many times when growing up, I saw other families that had more money, a better house, or other possessions. Although I could not choose which family I was already born into, I am grateful to have such wonderful parents who care for me and my siblings. I am looking forward to spending time with my family for eternity. Show more Show less
