Hi I'm Pete Kennedy

I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I have done many different types of work and have seen almost every state in the US.

About Me

I am a radio technician that works on many systems and radios for government, commercial, and private enterprises. I have a BAS in Automated Manufacturing Technology and a AAS in Electronics Engineering Technology. I have worked about a total of 15 years in the electronics field in several areas. I have had the opportunity to work many different types of careers and have lived in many different places. I am blessed to have a wonderful family, my sweet wife of 19 years, and our 3 wonderful children, and our dog Socks (10).

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converted when I was 6 years old. I was baptized at 8, but fell away from the church in my teenage years for a long time. I always knew the church was true and lived most of the principles even while not active. My family encouraged me to return to the gospel after our children were born and after a number of years we were able to be sealed together as a family for all time and eternity in the Chicago, Illinois temple! I have a firm testimony of the gospel and its teachings and principles. I am so blessed to be able to try and live a Christ like life to the best of my ability. My favorite part is that we always at all times live the principles of the gospel. I truly enjoy having opportunities to do service to others around me. It does not matter if they are members or not, if there is a chance for us to help we do what we can. I know that my redeemer lives is my most favorite and touching hymn and the most meaningful phrase to me. I know that the gospel is perfect, and that we attend church to try and learn from our mistakes and to try our best to become perfect while in this life.

How I live my faith

My current calling is the ward building representative and I am also a ward missionary.
