Hi I'm Ken

I am a typical everyday husband and father, and I love to spend time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of four lovely daughters, each of whom I adore and cherish. I love to run and follow my favorite sports teams.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me while I was young that I am a child of a loving Father in Heaven, who loves each of His children. We are all His children, a part of a global family and community. We believe that families can be together forever through the great eternal plan of our Father in Heaven, and this plan of happiness is available to everyone. I am a Mormon because I love my family, and I want to be with them after this life on earth comes to a temporary end.

How I live my faith

Knowing that I am a child of God, I have always wanted to please Him by learning more about Him and His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. I have found inner peace and the spiritual strength to make good choices and treat others kindly through reading and studying the Bible and The Book of Mormon, by attending services each Sunday, and by living the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I frequently meet with others to share a kind word or gospel message, so we can feel the influence of the Spirit together--that we can all be strengthened in our weaknesses. Life can be tough for everyone, and it is wonderful to share experiences of faith together.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

We come to know our Father in Heaven through prayer. It's not just the words we say to Him, but it is also when we stop to listen for answers from Him that we can come to know Him better. Answers to prayers can come through a calming assurance, a whispering to our minds, or a peaceful feeling in our hearts that what we feel is right or true. Sometimes answers to prayers come immediately, sometimes they are belated, and sometimes the words or acts of others will provide that moment of inspiration when we know--we know our Father in Heaven knows us individually, and He loves each one of us.
