Hi I'm Kenneth

I grew up in Idaho, I'm a wrestler, i love playing sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I’m Kenneth I’m 21 years old, and I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for my whole life. I am currently serving a mission in Fort Worth Texas. I have lived in Idaho for all of my life and love it there. I plan on going to school to either become a welding engineer or going into law enforcement. My hobbies include snow boarding, snowmobiling, wrestling and doing basically any kind of sport imaginable. I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends and like spending time in the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not always as faithful as I would like to have been, they say that hind sight is 20-20 and I truly believe that. I had a very good friend of mine who was an example to me when I needed it most when I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted to do with my life he showed me what my parents had been trying to show me for almost 20 years. Listening to him talk about Jesus Christ and the miracle of Christ’s Atonement really helped me understand why we are here and why things happen the way they do. It was after he bore his testimony to me about the savior when I decided I needed to fix my life and devote my time to serving the Lord. There are a lot of misconceptions about the church, and any question that you have about the church all falls on The Book of Mormon. If The Book of Mormon is true, then Joseph Smith was a prothet and everything he taught is true, which means we have a living prophet today who recieves revelation for us. This proves that God is not silent and that he loves us, when you think about it why wouldnt there be a prophet here today they had them before Christ and even after Christ was killed the Apostles kept prophesying. I have read The Book of Mormon and have asked God to tell me if it was his word, and I received my answer from him. No one could ever convince me other wise. The only way to truly know if Joseph Smith was a prophet and if Thomas Monson is a prophet now is to read and pray about The Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I don’t feel like I do anything different that anyone else who has a testimony of these things would do. God has given us commandments to live by and I do my best to strive to live up to those standards. Being free from addiction is only one of the many ways to find spiritual and physical freedom and happiness. By going to church and partaking of the sacrament I am able to reflect on the things I need to work on and think about the Saviors Atonement and how I can improve my self to be more Christ-like. I also feel like if you know the church is true that you will share it with others that’s why I dedicate two years of my life trying to help other people find the same lasting happiness and joy in their lives that i have found.
