Hi I'm Kenny

I'm a Mormon. My wife and I live in Tomball, TX and we have four sons ages 19, 16, 14, and 10.

About Me

I am the father of 4 sons, ages 19, 16, 14, and 10. They are all Basketball nuts and as such I have spent many days Coaching and Volunteering for our local Youth Basketball Organization. I am married to my best friend and wouldn't want it any other way. I am currently employed in the Building Technologies Industries working as a Project Manager. I work weekly in our Church with the Youth ages 12-18. I am the Young Men's President in our Ward. What this means is I oversee the spiritual development of the boys in our Ward (congregation). The LDS Church and its members are supporters of the Boy Scouts of America. The work we do with our youth relies strongly on the values stated and taught by the BSA. My oldest son is currently serving as a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Johannesburg South Africa Mission. I love my life. I love my wife. I love my sons.

Why I am a Mormon

Years ago I was searching for a Church to teach my Children about Christ. I wanted this to be something that was real to them and not something that they only practiced on Sunday's. When my wife and I were Church shopping she re-activated as a member of the LDS Faith. I attended Church with her and took notice of the youth that were attending at that time. These youth were different that other teenagers I knew at this time in my life. They each had a countenance about them that made them stand out from others. These youth built my Testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am grateful for the example they set for me.

How I live my faith

I am the Young Men's President for my Ward (kinda like a parish). I make sure we have gospel centered activities that meet Church standards and also meet the standards set forth by the Boy Scouts of America. I do my best to lead these youth by example. It is a true blessing to see these youth anxiously engaged in the Church as the each seek to build their Testimonies of Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

As a Mormon we believe in helping our fellow man. I have personally participated in Church sponsored service projects that benefit the community. When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans we volunteered to go at our own expense and serve the areas hardest hit by the Hurricane. We traveled from Tomball, TX to Covington, LA. Met at the LDS Chapel in Covington and were given an area to assist homeowners in need of assistance. I have personally never felt closer to Christ than I did that long hot weekend in Covington, LA. There we were in mass all wearing our yellow Mormon Helping Hands t-shirts extending a hand of fellowship and service to anyone who wanted help. It was a beautiful thing we did and brought me closer to my Savior. Show more Show less
