Hi I'm Ken Boyd

I served my community as a cop and my nation as a Guardsman. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been LDS all my life. Growing up in Albuquerque, NM I learned a love for the mountains. As a teenager we moved to California where I came to love the ocean and surfing. I enlisted in the California Air National Guard, giving over 30 yrs of service to that organization. As a result I was able to travel to many places in the world and experience many different cultures. I served a full time mission in Peru, where I learned Spanish. I had wonderful and fulfilling experiences there. I'd do it again yesterday, if given the chance. I worked in Law Enforcement for 35 yrs. It is what you make of it. At times it was hard, at others it was rewarding. I made it all the way without any serious injuries. I was blessed & protected by the Lord. I've had two marriages. The first blessed me with a son. The second blessed me with a daughter and two step-children. A boy and a girl All of them have grown up to be responsible, working adults. Three of them also took up surfing. I've studied martial arts, jumped out of airplanes, climbed some of the highest mountains in North America, and surfed up to 20 ft waves. I still skateboard (LDP) and am currently planning a bicycle trip across America. Most important of all, I am a husband and father. I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true and living church on the face of the earth today and treasure my membership in it. Jesus is the Lord, the Savior of all mankind.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born Mormon. My mother was Mormon. Her family was in the church from its beginning. My father was not Mormon. That sometimes made it hard to practice the religion. My mother, even though unable to attend church herself, always arranged rides for us kids and made us go to church. Staying home was not an option. Through her hard work and the diligence of my adult leaders, a gained a testimony.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the best I can. I do not drink alcohol or smoke. I attend church as I can. I try to study the scriptures daily and I pray often. I support my family and try to be a good example to them.
