Kenny Mauck, author of “Leaving your Life Imprint” is a speaker, writer, founder of two legacy non-profit organizations, ordained minister, singer, and song writer. He is one who believes everyone’s life story is significant, redeemable, empowered, and cherished by God. Kenny uses the term in his book, “Keeper of the Story” as a reminder that we as parents, uncles, aunts, and grandparents have a duty to pass on to our children and loved ones a heritage of faith, hope, and love. As a result, Kenny’s book is filled with amazing stories of affirmation as evidenced by well-kept memorable letters and pictures.
Kenny wrote this inspired story “Leaving your Life Imprint” as a result of two primary epiphany moments.
The first one came as a result of a sermon entitled, “a BIG HARY AUDICOUS GOAL” (BHAG) from his Pastor, L.H Hardwick. This inspired sermon reminded him it was time to keep his promise to Carlos, a 9-year-old inner city child, abandoned by his mother, found alone and traumatized physically and emotionally. In order to accomplish this huge promise, he knew it would take an army of professional caregivers. These professional would he hired, included many highly trained therapist, case managers, psychiatric and medical personnel, and safe homes in an effort to help children like “Carlos” happening over and over again. Most of the individuals hired were people of faith, which was important, in that was the foundation of how LifeCare was birthed in the first place.
Kenny has done his best in keeping that promise by offering mental health and housing services to over 100,000 of Tennessee’s most vulnerable and at-risk children and adults. With the help of a great leadership team of Sean McPherson and Jim Carter and many hundreds of great employees over the last 22 years Kenny and his wife Raye Ann’s mission has come true and continues to this day!
The second inspirational epiphany was when Kenny and his wife finished their “legal Will”. Although initially feeling good about its completion, on his way home something was still missing. This something was his personal and ancestral story. He knew very little about the entire scope of his story and family heritage. Therefore, he had little to pass on to his children but things that ultimately wouldn’t matter much. Over the next three years he was able through research sites, parents, and older adults to assemble his story, not just a story, but an amazing chronicle he never knew existed before. As he began to put the generational pieces all together what emerged was a great movie like story line, one that emerged all the way back to 1707 from his sixth generational grandfather.
Now having finished the book, Kenny can’t wait to share it with his friends, family, fellow entrepreneurs, leaders, pastors, musicians, counselors, medical staff, singers, song artist, and athletic coaches. This story includes Kenny’s experiences of risk in his business ventures and in/life issues that include
s addressing, loss, exploration, joy, addictions, repentance, reconciliation by making amends, and helping one to freedom by erasing old negative reels of rejection. Kenny also shares the touching stories his children, grandchildren and friends appreciate as to the issues he never before shared regarding his own childhood fears and years growing up due to early illness that fed on those worried concerns. His message to everyone is this, we are losing our sense of story. Kids want to hear inspired stories that they can bond and embrace as part of their own legacy. More than toys, games, money, wealth, fame, or possessions that soon are no more. We must help our children find their heritage and write their own chapters of unknown treasured stories. His call, we need to be “keepers of our cherished family Stories”, or we will lose them.
