Hi I'm John Kay

Hey! I live in Lancaster, England, I'm a music lover, I'm a Gardener at the Preston England Temple and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've always dabbled in art, mainly drawing but I love sculpting and I'm probably better at it than at drawing. I LOVE music, I'm a guitarist, drummer and vocalist. I was previously in a rock band as a lead singer and in a side group as a back up singer and percussionist. I'm interested in teaching, I love sharing my knowledge with groups of people, I've always enjoyed performing so I try to incorporate that into my teaching when I get the opportunity. I work as a gardener at the Preston England Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love to be around nature and marvel at all the things my Heavenly Father has blessed me with.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've come to realize that there is more to life. I know that there is a grand and wise creator and the way we can know him is through prayer and study of Prophets words both old (in scriptures such as the Bible and the Book of Mormon) and new (like Joseph Smith or Thomas S. Monson the current President of the Church). Heavenly Father has a grand plan for us that neither started at our birth nor ends at our death which helps me understand the mysteries of life. This way of life has just brought so much to me and to my family. It gives me the perspective to do good and to live the life the best I can and to develop myself because I know that the talents I have are God given. I know that God answers Prayers and that by praying and living His commandments great peace and joy can be found as I have found.

How I live my faith

I serve others in small ways, from giving a smile to serving in my local congregation. I recently finished helping youth at a convention, which brought a lot of joy into my life as I could see how the gospel of Jesus Christ changed them for the better. I came back from serving a full time mission in Queensland Australia in January 2014 where I met many amazing people and was able to touch their lives through Jesus Christ. I know we are all children of God and as such, try to respect everyone. sometimes I fall short but I know if I try my best. Jesus Christ can help me be the best I can. I also love to laugh and I think Heavenly Father appreciates when we can make good humor and make each other laugh and have a good time. That is what life is all about.
