Hi I'm Ken

I was not born into the Church. My family moved around a lot. I'm a Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My mother and father were a Hippie kind of people and moved often to find jobs. We were very poor. My parents jobs only provided an income of $6000.00 per year. My parents are deaf/dumb. I do speak sign language. My parents had my 5 sisters and I live in a car multiple times growing up. We worked the farms picking fruit as our main income. On the back window, of the 12' camper we lived in, we had a sign that said "FRUIT TRAMP #1". The camper was purchased with money earned on the farms. We paid $650 for our home. My father has passed away from Pancreatic Cancer at 66. I moved out at the age of 17 for the last time and met my wife at a truck stop. We both were employ'd there. She is a Mormon. I joined the Church of Jesus Christ at the age of 21. Raised our 4 kids with the aide of the Church. I'm a Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor in Denver.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife's father, Kay Hymas, was a great influence to me. He was raising his family the way I thought a father should have. He lived the standards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I became a Mormon after I joined the United States Navy and was in service for 1 year. Several friends in the Navy weren't raised the way I thought a person should have been raised. Most of my friends didn't have any high moral standards which they lived by. I started reading the Book of Mormon, I prayed about the truth of this book Came home for a leave, met with the Missionaries and was Baptized. It has given me a great set of standards to live my life.

How I live my faith

My wife's father, Kay Hymas, was a great influence to me. He was raising his family the way I thought a father should have. He lived the standards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A lot of my friends at the time did not have hardly any moral standards in which they were living their lives. I started studying the Book of Mormon and prayed for an answer to know the Truth. I received a warm confirmation. I became a Mormon after I joined the United States Navy and was in service for 1 year. Came home for a leave, met with the Missionaries and was Baptized. It has given me a great set of moral standards to live my life. I didn't feel that people should be paid to serve God. The Church of Jesus Christ doesn't pay people to teach others, the Bishop isn't paid. I feel if you truly want to serve God and his children, you should not be paid...

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Ken
I have a Testimony that this is True. I was reading the Book of Mormon, in my bunk bed, on a Naval ship in the middle of the ocean, and received a warm comforting feeling in my heart and mind. This feeling was a feeling that I could not dispute and it came with so much comfort and Truth! Show more Show less
