Hi I'm Ken

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 31 years and have a wonderful wife and 4 grown children--the last one will graduate from college in April 2012. I currently live in Texas, but grew up in Idaho. I miss the mountains, cool weather, and the potatoes. I enjoy all outdoor activites especially tennis and water activities. I am a dentist by profession.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and family are all members so I "grew up in the church". I realized at a young age the benefits of living a good life that is conducive to the gospel principles of Jesus Christ. These same principles are taught in our church and helped form me into the person I am now and how I conduct myself. I was able to serve a full time mission to Mexico and saw how the gospel can change individuals and families for the better. Even before the mission I felt and believed the gospel is true and the mission helped fortify my testimony. The evidences and benefits of being a mormon are greatly demonstrated by the actions and choices made by members of our church versus other choices and consequences by individuals that do not yet have the gospel. The saving factor is that the gospel of Jesus Christ is extended to all people.

How I live my faith

I am actively engaged in many aspects of our church. We visit people and members regularly. This is my favorite thing to do. My specific responsibility involves some administrative functions, but I enjoy talking and meeting individuals. I enjoy working with the youth of our church. Our youth are the best ever. The integrity and principles they demonstrate are taught to them at home by their parents, and at church meetings and functions. It is important to be a good example for our youth and it is important for them to be strong among the peer pressure they face daily. I try to treat others how I would like to be treated. This practice is good for all aspects of life.
