Hi I'm Kenneth

I am an electical engineer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Since I was very young, I enjoyed learning how things work. When my friends wanted to be firemen or the President, I wanted to be a scientist. At eight years old picked being a chemist as a career but changed to a “more serious” decision of becoming an electrical engineer a few months before turning twelve. That decision guided my personal choices so that I have worked as an engineer for over 30 years. I have worked in military communications helping our men and women in uniform have the best possible equipment which in turn helps to protect our precious freedoms. In a similar way, I made early decisions on what type of person I was going to be. I learned to be helpful, to give service and determined to avoid addictions. I see no conflict between my faith and my profession. Learning about and discovering truth, wherever it is, is exciting to me. I enjoy exploring the stars, reading history and collecting rocks from places that I visit.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in part because of the great example and faith of my forebears. As a first generation American, I know of the sacrifice my parents made so that I would have better opportunities. That example helped me to ponder and pray with faith about spiritual things. I have read the Bible and the Book of Mormon many times and see in them the word of God. I have experienced the happiness one can have when my life is following the example of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have always enjoyed participating in my local church. My assignments have been greatly varied from teaching children, youth and adult classes to keeping records and assisting the leadership in their responsibilities. These opportunities have helped me become a better manager for my employer. Every month, I visit several families to learn if they are having special challenges that I might help but mostly they add to my circle of friends and I gain new ideas that can help my own family. It is a great network that is not only local but as I travel I have instant connections to people whether I am in different cities, states or countries. Participation is not just on Sunday. I find ways each day to live according to my beliefs including personal study and devotion, helping and encouraging neighbors and my own family.
