Hi I'm K.C. Abney

I am a retired army combat veterian, a triathlete, father of five, a grandfather of eleven and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born the oldest of eleven children in a his mine and ours family. My parents were part of the greatest generation that ever lived and they fought for freedom during WW II. I learned a love of freedom, self reliance, and work from both my parents. I was drafted during the Vietnam War and became an officer in the Marine Corps and later the Army Special Forces as a Reservist. I am a veteran of the Afghanistan war. My greatest accomplishment was marrying a saintly queen, who raised four mighty sons and one dynamic daughter. I have eleven strong grandchildren who set an exceptional example for me.

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon church is ether the only true church on the earth or it is a fraud. I have asked through prayer if the following are true: 1. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, the chief cornerstone of all Christian religion. 2. That God still speaks through living prophets, namely, Joseph Smith. 3. The Book of Mormon is true and a second witness of the Christ. 4. That the authority of God (priesthood ) has been restored back to the earth. I have heard and felt the voice of the Lord, and all the above and much more are all true. The Lord loves us and wants us to be happy. Only through the spirit can we know truth.

How I live my faith

My greatest joy is serving my God, country, family and those in need through my Mormon faith. I did humanitarian work in Afghanistan, Africa, Turkey and Mexico. My church has allowed me to serve many unpaid assignments from boy scout leader to minister. I volunteer on my community ambulance service and my Mormon faith encourages me to serve the poor and needy at all times. My faith teaches me that this is a time of action not many flattering words.
