Hi I'm Ken

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 48 year old father of three wonderful children who is fortunate to be married to the most patient woman on the planet who I have had the pleasure of being married to for the past twenty-five years. I graduated from THE University here in Texas (Texas A&M University, College Station)! I also attended one of those "other Universities (The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio). I have taught chemistry, physics, and medical microbiology to high school students as well as nursing students for the past twenty five years. I love to hunt, fish, camp, hike and watch my kids play sports. Although we reside in the great state of Texas I am a Wyoming native and do miss my home, especially during the dog-days of summer here in Texas! My Texas Native children tell me to toughen up and enjoy the heat!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in the Church, it is not the reason I have chosen to continue to grow in the Gospel. I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. For me, following the Gospel and its teachings helps me to know the answers to ALL of life's questions and problems that I face. Having struggled like everyone does, I have found that when I keep my life centered on Gospel Standards, even though there are still struggles to face, I know that I am not alone and that I can turn to my Heavenly Father and my Savior to help me to overcome the obstacles and strengthen my Testimony of the Savior and His teachings. Knowing that my Heavenly Father is there and that my Savior has attoned for me personally humbles me and reminds me of His plan for me and my family. I love the Lord and pray that I can continue to honorably serve him.

How I live my faith

I try each and every day to remember who I am and what my Heavenly Father would want me to do. I try to remember that all of the people I encounter and teach both at Church and at work are my brothers and sisters. I take counsel from a wonderful man who is a leader in our Church. He reminds us that our Heavenly Father doesn't want us coming back to him alone, but with our arms wide open bringing with us as many of our brothers and sisters as we can. I know that I am not perfect, but I know that if I can remember to do the simple things like read my scriptures, say my prayers, attend my meetings, love my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ, and my fellow man, I will stay close to my Savior. I presently have the opportunity to serve my Heavenly Father as the Bishop of our congregation. In this calling, I have the opportunity to work with our young men, young women, and children as well as the other adults in our Ward. I am humbled every day by the blessings that my Heavenly Father provides to me, my family, and other members of our local Ward.
