Hi I'm Ken

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Last Spring my failing health led me to a truly remarkable experience...a kidney transplant. The most remarkable part of the experience was that the kidney was from an anonymous living doner. This generous woman saved and impacted my life. Her gift led me to a greater understanding of the atonement and allowed me the privilege of continuing to endeaver in the two jobs I love the most...the jobs of husband and father. My other jobs, the ones that kept food on the table, involved mens' apparel, real estate, and the printing industry. As a young man, I backpacked all over Europe and even played in a rock-n-roll band in high school. My favorite band is still the Beatles, which made my stay in Liverpool even more awe inspiring. I love to snow ski, ride four wheelers, watch movies, and attend education week. I love my wife, I love the Lord, and I love my kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized into the church when I was nine. My mom was single and had been through some very difficult times, and even though she was raised in the LDS church, the trials in her life led to her stay away from time to time. I too had difficult times and at the age of 13, I left the church and took a walk on the wild side. Faithful members of the church found me during one of my darkest hours and through their love and commitment, I started returning to church and asked myself some really hard questions. I started to read the scriptures, ponder, and pray. Moreover, I looked to the examples of many remarkable men in the church around me for guidance. These men were no dummies and I respected and admired them. I saw in them the man I wanted to be. After almost thirty years of being actively involved in the church, my admiration is now focused on the Savior. He is the man I respect and admire, He is who I emulate and desire to be like.

How I live my faith

Everyday I wake up and ask myself two questions: how can I make my wife happy today and how can I be an instrument in the hands of the Lord. I cherish life a little more now that I came so close to losing it. I take more time to think about others and the prospects of eternity. I look forward to reading the scriptures, to communicating with my Father in prayer, and attending church. I love to feel the Spirit and seek for its guidance in all I do. I still love the Beatles and playing my guitar, but now I also love hanging out in the temple and serving the Lord.
