Hi I'm Ken

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a gourmet cook, love the theater, travel, and also love to do genealogy. I am a father of 1 daughter, and grandfather of 2 grand-daughters and 2 grand-sons. I work at a major university as the database administer of a large computerized financial system with over 30,000 users. I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, and presently volunteer my time as the Executive Secretary to a Stake President (similar to a Bishop of a Diocese) who oversees 5 congregations of Latter-Day Saints. It is from my membership in this Church and from the time that I volunteer and give service to this Church is what provides me the real satisfaction in my life along with my family relationships.

Why I am a Mormon

As an agnostic, despite my study of 10 sold months with the LDS missionaries, I couldn't gain the truth, until without my knowledge, 5 people fasted on my behalf on a 1979 Fall Sunday. As a result by miraculous means, I came to know for certain: we all lived in a pre-earth life in the presence of a Loving Father in Heaven; excited that Jesus created the Earth for us so that we may obtain bodies and be born; that while in Jerusalem, Jesus organized His Church, taught the Gospel; His rejected message & crucified for our sins, He resurrected. The with the Apostles dead, the authority was lost - the earth fell into apostasy known as the dark ages. Then I witnessed by the power of God that on a beautiful 1820 spring morning, that God and his Son Jesus BOTH appeared to Joseph Smith; & thru Joseph, Jesus restored his Church again, even the Church of Jesus of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Other ancient Angelic Church leaders Peter, James, and John; Moses; Elijah; and others, then restored all keys, rights, and privileges to perform the ordinances of salvation for the living and the dead. I saw Joseph translate gold plates becoming the Book of Mormon; a 2nd witness of Jesus Christ; proof of revelation today & I knew Spencer Kimball (the rightful successor of Joseph Smith) was Christ's Prophet; ALL POWER LOVINGLY made known to every fiber and cell of my being. Today this authority resides with President Thomas Monson. If you really knew this came from God, what would you do?

How I live my faith

As a Church leader, I get to visit the homes of several members of my congregation helping them find their way in whatever ways I can whether they be physical, emotional, or spiritual. I also work with several members in helping them figure out their family history and genealogy. I am single, so I get to spend an unusual large amount of time in this service which is greatly rewarding to me. I feel like I get so much more spiritually FROM this service than the service I provide.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

I really do believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today. His name is Thomas S Monsen. I can know this for having prayed and asked our Heavenly Father that these things are true. The miracle of it, is that if you too, will pray, and ask our Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, if anything which you have read in my profile is true, and if you will ask, with a sincere heart, with real intent having faith in Christ God, our Heavenly Father will tell you that these things are true by the power of the Holy Ghost, and by the power of the Holy Ghost you will know the truth of ALL things.
