Hi I'm Kenan Fronk

I grew up in California. I live to love and experience the world and everything in it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a laid back guy who grew up in California my whole life. I've jumped around from sport to sport; I played soccer when was little, I played football as a lineman in High School, and now I'm currently practicing Japanese martial arts. I've taken 3 semesters of college at Brigham Young University Hawaii and have a general idea of the direction I'd like to take my career. I love the sciences and I plan on becoming a physicist and perhaps going into material or aerospace development. Traveling is a personal favorite of mine-- more importantly trying all the tasty dishes this world has to offer! I'm open to new things, but I'm pretty adamant on retaining the truths I already have. There's not many things I get too mad about in this world and I don't think that will change.

Why I am a Mormon

I had been born into this Church and had been raised into it my entire life. I didn't really understand much when I was younger and truthfully I hadn't really established a firm connection with it until my teenage years. It wasn't a truth to me until I found myself putting more effort into living the gospel of Jesus Christ. Each bit of effort was rewarded with happiness or some sort of personal revelation, so I kept putting more effort into it. Life certainly isn't easy and I think I would lack humility and appreciation to say that my life in particular is hard, but nonetheless, I think everybody runs into some sort of trouble. I wasn't truly converted until I understood and knew in my heart that the Atonement of Jesus Christ was a tangible and accessible thing. Everything else is an addition to that wonderful truth and the continuation of blessings of a loving Heavenly Father are built upon that foundation. Faith is personal, I'm not a member of this Church because of scientific evidence. I'm a Mormon because I feel that it is true in my heart, evidence is important, but what I feel inside my heart is why I'm a Mormon and will continue to be one. I live my life on the promise that families can be together forever and that I can be forgiven of my sins. That promise and the feelings I carry with me in my heart is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

If I had to describe how I live my faith, I'd have to say it's the small changes I try to make every day. I don't like to evaluate myself or other people strictly by comparing what a person should be based off from a normal model. I choose to compare myself to myself each day and see the little changes I try to implement in my life on a daily basis. I believe the Lord cares about how we change for the better and that's what I try to focus on. Other than trying to change for the better each day and improving, I try to help out the members of my church and community. Whether it's visiting the elderly or helping out on Scouting projects, I do my best to be available to help. I'm currently preparing to serve a mission in the Fukuoka Japan Mission, which is primarily the southern portion of Japan. I have found no greater happiness in my life than living the gospel of Jesus Christ, so I will try my best to teach others the path to my happiness while being open to being taught the things that make others truly happy.
