Hi I'm Ken

I'm from a small town in Washington State. I develop websites for a small business. I hunt, fish, and play guitar. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I work as a web developer/analyst for a small company in Pullman, Washington. I spend most of my day with web analytics, CPC advertising, and working with other members of the marketing team to build and sell terrific products. The best part of the job is the people whom I'm blessed to work with. Everyday I get to come to work and spend time with people who have the exact same interests that I do. Outside of work, I spend a lot of time outdoors. I love to hunt and fish. I play really bad country/folk music on my guitar. I spend an abnormal amount of time helping others with their computers. I love to barbecue and cook - particularly things that I've procured myself. I'm 25 years old, single, abnormally tall, and absolutely love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I certainly didn't find the Church as much as it found me. I started working at my University as a financial aid counselor and we had a problem with irresponsible part-time student help. One of the students happened to be a member and based upon their work ethic, we happened to hire several more members. In a short amount of time, I found myself in an office full of Mormons! At the time, I wasn't interested in religion. While I could never manage to convince myself that there wasn't a supreme being, I certainly wasn't willing to put in the effort to find a testimony for myself. As time wore on, I found myself building a strong friendship with one of the members and she introduced me to gospel. For that simple act, I will be eternally grateful. "You don't know what you got til' it's gone" pretty much sums up my family situation. Divorce and abuse challenged my childhood and when I left for University, I was battered and broken. I was desperately seeking something that could replace the comfort of a strong family and I found that in my ward. The Bishop became a father and slowly the wounds began to heal. I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have a testimony of eternal families and of Heavenly Father's divine plan for salvation. My conversion process has not been easy. I had plenty of skeletons in the closet and wounded relationships circling overhead. However, with the ordinance of baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost - I've been able to better my relationship with my Heavenly Father and with my fellow brothers and sisters. For the first time ever, my life has purpose.

How I live my faith

I'm blessed to work with many other members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints everyday in my career. It's wonderful to be able to share a conversation with another who has aligned their lives in the same direction as my own. In the Church, I'm fortunate to have a position where I'm able to lead my brethren. I love this calling; I love helping others find the peace that I have found in the Gospel. My favorite part of holding the Priesthood in the Church is the opportunities that I'm given to help others. I'm lucky enough to serve as a home teacher where I get to meet with others to share a gospel message and help them anyway that I can. It's such a blessing to be able to serve others. When I do service, I find that I'm always blessed.
