Hi I'm Ken

I'm a swimmer, I'm a water polo player, I have a very busy life, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of three kids and I love my family a lot. I am a type of person who likes to work hard, and to play hard also. My favorite things to do are to wakeboard, swim, water polo, snowboard, and anything else that gets me going. I also like music. I play the trumpet and try to play the guitar and piano. I love making new friends and learning about the lives of others.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. Whenever we have a question we can always ask God and find out for ourselves what is true. I have asked God and he has shown me multiple times through various means that this is His Church. I have literally recieved very real answers from God to know that this is His Church and why would I not follow something I know to be true?

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by applying the teachings of the Scriptures and the Prophets into my everyday decisions. I do my best to consider how I can handle every situation the way Jesus Christ would. I try to help others understand the importance of living the Gospel in their lives, and how it will make them happier people. I stive to live the comandments of God such as reading the scriptures, praying daily, and attending church weekly. I know that it is not enough to know about the teachings of Christ, but as we apply them to our lives is when we will be greatly blessed.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Ken
 The Book of Mormon is an ancient record of the people who lived in the Americas hundreds of years ago. Just as the prophets in Jerusalem recorded their revelations and teachings from God, the phophets in the Americas did equally. The Book of Mormon contains the entirety of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The highlight of the book is when Jesus Christ Himself comes and visits the Americas after He was resurrected. When he visited here, he established the same Church he did in Jerusalem. His teachings were also recorded and eventually the book was placed in the earth and many years later Joseph Smith was guided by and angel to where the record had been hidden. By the power of God, Joseph translated the Book of Mormon into English, which has now been translated into many different languages.  Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"

Ken
 Eternal Life is the greatest gift that God can give us. Not only do we live forever, but we can live in His presence with our families, and recieve every blessing God has for us. We cannot comprehend right now how great, marvelous, and joyful Eternal Life will be, but it will be well woth our efforts. If we do all we can to obey the commandments of God and do that until the end of our lives, we are promised the gift of Eternal Life. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Ken
When the missionaries visit the homes of people they talk about the Church of Jesus Christ and how it was restored on the earth again through the prophet Joseph Smith. They will also teach the true doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As they visit, they will invite you to do certain things, such as reading in the Book of Mormon, praying to know if it is true, ask you to attend church, and to follow the example of Jesus Christ and be baptized by someone holding the proper authority of God. As you do these things they ask, you will have more happiness in your life. Show more Show less

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Ken
If you wish to talk to someone about the Church, request on this site that the missionaries come and visit you. It will be the best decision you will have ever made. Missionaries are not the only people you can talk to about the Church. Every church member is willing to share what they know about the Church and how it has affected their lives. Show more Show less
