Hi I'm Ken

I grew up in Southern California. I’m a husband, father, graphic designer, illustrator, and store owner.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I’m a father of 4, two girls and two boys. I have a degree in art and have been in the advertising business for 20 plus years. I’ve design many brochures, ads, product sheets, logos, websites etc. I’ve been drawing coloring book pages for the past three years. I’ve been involved with Boy Scouts for 21 years. I’ve been a Scoutmaster, Committee Chairman, Assistant District Commissioner and now manage the web content for our district. I love reading, woodcarving and just doodling cartoons.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is where I’ve found answers. We all have difficult lives. Face it life is messy even for the best. I’ve found when I stay close to the Lord’s commandments that I find peace in the storms of life. I also feel challenged to be better. Not only do I have a chance to hear the word but also through church, work and being a Husband and father I have to practice the word in all that I do.

How I live my faith

I participate. I’ve had a variety of assignments for my church that have given me an opportunity to grow and stretch as a person. I get to interact and meet and serve with some incredibly talented people that have been great examples to me. Nothing changes a person better than service.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Baptism is a covenant between you and God and must be performed by one that holds the authority from God to preform it. Jesus set that example for us by being baptized by the one person at that time that held the authority, which was John the Baptist, not the leaders of the Jewish councils. We believe that we hold that priesthood and have that authority to baptize in his name. Through that covenant we promise to accept Christ and follow him. To keep his commandments throughout our life. He promises to forgive our sins and shortcomings and that we may return to live with him. Show more Show less
