Hi I'm Ken

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, a father, and a grandfather. I install and repair medical equipment. Everyday I learn something new. I enjoy being with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

While growing up I learned about Jesus and how he suffered and died for my sins. I always felt so guilty that my sins heaped more suffering on Him. Over time, I couldn't  bear to think about Him any more. It wasn't until I began investigating the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints that I came to understand that Jesus wasn't a helpless victim. He wasn't "punished" for my sins.  I learned that because of my sins, I could not live with God, my Heavenly Father. It was because God loved me so much, he sent His son Jesus to atone for my sins. It was because Jesus loved me so much that He willingly took upon Himself the consequences of my sins. He paid the ransom so that I could return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father. I no longer felt guilt, but rather, I was amazed and humbled at the infinite love my Savior had for me. Because of my love and appreciation for Jesus, I was baptized in 2000 and became a member of His church.   Everyday, each of us face challenges.  Because of my faith in our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, I know that They will help me to learn and to grow.  I look forward to challenges, so that I can see how God will teach me and help me to overcome those challenges. Being a member of His Church has changed my life.

How I live my faith

I serve in a leadership capacity in my church. I help ascertain the physical and spiritual needs of the individuals in our church and then help organize support and encouragement to help them overcome their trials. I'm always amazed at how much church members help each other. This tends to spread out to the community at large. For example, each year the city comes to our church to seek our help in renovating aging neighborhoods. Local companies donate paint, fencing material, building supplies and tons of gravel. The members of our church volunteer to paint houses, build fences, remove rubbish, and spread decorative gravel in yards, to restore and beautify a neighborhood in our community. I believe that when we serve others we come to realize that we all are a part of our Heavenly Father's family.
