Hi I'm Keith

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have six children and three grandchildren. I am a retired Civil Engineer. I am an amateur radio operator. I have served for two terms as a member of my local City Council.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an active Mormon family. I remain a Mormon because I have examined the teachings of the church and I believe them. I enjoy my work and I have been widely recognized in my profession. I have serve on my City Council and other government bodies and enjoy the community service that I can provide. From all of the things that I do and can associate myself with, my key self identity is "I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." I believe the Book of Mormon because I have read and studied it, I have prayed to know for myself that it is true. And it is. I have had to do this because as a Missionary I taught other people to do this, and I had to know for myself before I could ask someone else to do it. The teaching of the church about eternal families is the foundation of my life and my wife's life. Knowing that our family can last forever means more that anything else to us. Having a living prophet is important. I know for myself that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and Thomas Monson is God's prophet today. I am a Mormon, because I want to be.

How I live my faith

At church I teach the 14-15 year old Sunday School class. I am also part of the Public Affairs committee and have helped to organize the Mormon Helping Hands events in my community that have involved hundreds of volunteers and provided a needed, and happily received, service of clean up and painting at the local parks and downtown area. The other members of my City Council understood that I don't do Sunday events. I leave Sunday for Church.
