Hi I'm Ken McGuire

I love working in the construction industry, serving in the community, exploring the outdoors and being a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Northern Michigan in a small rural community. Since leaving Michigan I have moved across the United States. I served a Mission in Quebec Canada. I attended college in Southern California, graduating with a degree in architecture. After graduating I studied environmental science where I developed a great appreciation for the natural environment. I have a great family. We live in the Northern Rocky Mountains where I work in the construction industry. I love camping, coaching soccer, hiking, kayaking, playing basketball, designing stuff and spending quality time with my family. I really have a great life and live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. My parents are converts. I have always believed in the teachings of the church. I have been blessed by following our Heavenly Father's plan. The most important thing to me is the peace I find as I read the Bible and Book of Mormon, as I pray, as I serve others and as I worship. My membership and faith are based on this peace. I have found great joy in my associations with others of my faith. As we have traveled we have made lasting friendships with people from differing backgrounds based in similar testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have seen the blessing of the gospel in their lives. Being a Mormon brings me great joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living life to it's fullest. With 6 children we spend a lot of time at sporting events, musical recitals, scouting events and church activities. We spend time helping with assignments in church callings and volunteering in the community. I especially enjoy my service to the youth. I work in the young men's program working with the 14-18 year olds. I love seeing them make good choices and watching them grow into leaders. As a family we have grown very fond of the more mature members of our church family. Our children have been adopted as grand children and we have made eternal friendships. One of the fondest memories we have made recently is playing ping pong with a couple in their 80's. It has given a chance to serve and to be served.
