Hi I'm Ken

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 4 wonderful children who happens to be married to my best friend. I am a sales executive for a consumer packaged goods company and have been for most of my career. I love most sports, but I am most passionate about baseball. I spent a number of years coaching my son's and daughter's teams and grew up playing and I just love everything about the sport. With that said if I am given the opportunity to do anything I want, I simply want to spend time with my wife and children...nothing else compares to that! 

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to grow up in a Mormon household with two incredible parents. Growing up in Maine where there were virtually no Mormons around me, helped me to find out why I was a Mormon early in life. All of my friends came from other faiths and I was often challenged as to why I did the things I did and believed the things I stated. It forced me to find out for myself if this was a true restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was able to find the answers I was searching for through prayer and scripture study. I had a wonderful youth and will forever remember with fondess growing up in Central Maine surrounded by many God loving people who supported me in my decision to live according to the tenants of the Mormon faith.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving in my church as a Stake President. In this role I am blessed to oversee all of the temporal and eccesiastical needs of the people who live within the Stake Boundary. I have been in this capacity now for a little over a year. It has been so fullfilling to be able to serve the people of my community not only those of our faith but all who live within the geographical boundary of our stake. A stake is comprised of a number of wards (LDS term for congregations) and a geographical boundary. As a Stake President I am able to see the working of God in people's lives in so many different ways. Whether it is helping someone get a job after a difficult trial of unemployment, or seeing a household come together in new, more profound ways through a greater devotion to Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ. I can absolutely testify that God knows EVERYONE of us and that he and his Son are there to help ALL of us, regardless of our background, whenever we are prepared to call out for help. I can also testify that miracles still occur on a daily basis, but that it is up to us to open our eyes so that we may see them. I feel so blessed to have been given this opportunity to serve as a Stake President.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

We are all God's children and in my service as a Bishop and now as a Stake President I have had many opportunities to reach out and offer assistance to those not of our faith. It has been wonderful to feel our Heavenly Father's love for all of his children regardless of their background or religion. Whenever I learn of someone in need who lives within the boundaries of my congregation, I do not ask whether they are members of our faith, but instead..."what can we do to help". Show more Show less
