Philip Keeve

Pursuing a Political Science degree at Northwestern University, Philip converted to the LDS Church as a college freshman. Between his education, jobs, music, and moving around the country as a student of politics, health, and law, he puts family, friends, and faith first. The outdoors, quality time with amazing people of all stripes, and the Spirit's influence have all worked to bring Philip happiness, help, and hope. The many blessings bestowed upon him have inspired him not to blend in, but to blend out.

What an inspiration! I'm so happy you found the church and that you found the Help and the Hope that we all so desperately need. You are a brave soul to come forward and share your story. Your selflessness will bring you the joy of having many who care for and about you and the eternal joys we all seek. I honor your story, your life, and your courage! God Bless you in your joyful journey!

Thank you so much for sharing such a personal story! I hope we can all work to make the church a space that is more inviting for us all to truly be ourselves. Ourselves as diverse, learning, flawed,strong, and loved children of God.

I'm a teenager just like the one you described: carrying a heavy cement block on my back. Thanks for your amazing example, testimony, and conviction!

Thank Philip. I'm happy you've been able to embrace the gospel and learn from the spirit. I can fully relate to your dumbbell analogy. The more we share and discuss our honest experience with others (especially the Church community), the better it gets.

Philip, what an inspirational example you are of faith, testimony, hope, courage, love & true compassion ~ all attributes each of us as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints should possess.
