  1. my main goal in life is to make people laugh- no matter how big the challenge, I’ve always managed to do so (so far!) even my grandfather, who NEVER laughed! How did I make him laugh? I subtly poked fun…at HIM! Even my aunts and uncles were impressed! I got him to laugh again a few years later after dressing in a homemade dragon suit and ‘bit’ his head, but that’s another story….

  2. Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a great adventure, or it is nothing at all. ” I’ve found that adventure without a sense of humor is simply drudgery.

  3. Nothing lightens my heart more than laughter. The kind of laughter where your drink comes out of your nose and the next day your belly feels like you’ve done about a thousand sit-ups and your face feels like the Joker on laughing gas.

    I’m afraid without that laughter I would die…literally die. Thank God I have family and friends (like you) who keep me alive with laughter.

  4. When my mother was walking the path through alzhiemer I found that humor helped us get through some touchy situations. Laughing got us through a lot of her forgetfulness.

  5. Your sense of humor is wonderful! God uses it to reach people who won’t sit and listen to the word of God otherwise. So laugh on, Ken, laugh on!

  6. As you know I always say if God didn’t have a sense of humor he would have given this early onset dementia to someone else. I find humor in the fact that he has made it so that I have no idea what so ever what my beverage of choice will taste like or what today’s mystery meat will be. I can tell you that yesterday’s vanilla coke zero tasted like black cherry soda and that my morning fiber supplement is still tasting like liquid spaghettiOs. Also if God didn’t have a sense of humor why would he make my doctors name so hard to remember.

  7. I love your attitude and stories. I’ve seen your shows, heard you at Willow Creek and read your book Lighten Up several times. You’ve made me laugh so hard, tears have run down my face. Thanks for sharing your gifts with us!

  8. My daughter once said to me “but Mom, it’s my job to make people laugh. That’s how God made me!” Of course this was after one of many ‘class clown’ episodes. I’ve tried to help her understand that there is a time and a place without smothering her beautiful fire! My Zoe may be different to those who don’t “get her” but she is an amazing girl and the world is and will be a better place because of her <3

  9. I grew up in a very abusive home ,gave my heart to Jesus at 8 years old ,it will be 50 years ago this march 8th 2014 . I would not have survived or made it through my life without JESUS and folks like you.I know THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH .Thank you for being such a blessing to me . you have help turn my scars into stars.

  10. I grew up on a dairy farm and my dad had a great sense of humor-he’d invite people over to Sunday dinner because “someone ran over one of our chickens in the road yesterday!” Then he would tell how he spilled some gas while fueling up the tractor and our dog licked some of it up. As dad told it, the dog just took off running around the house like crazy 3 times and then he just stopped and fell over. Of course most everybody would ask “dead?” “Nope, he ran out of gas!” I am glad I inherited his sense of humor and that people like you, Ken, keep us laughing with clean laughter.

  11. Happiness is a choice. Joy is a command. Choose to live with joy and happiness. I have known those without humor. I don’t know how they stand going through life that way. I choose to surround myself with those that bring joy.

  12. Our 3 1/2 year old granddaughter always keeps us on our toes…One day we told her “That was so nice, honey. God sure made you sweet.” She replied, “No…God made me funny!!” He sure did!!

  13. Laughing is healthy. I love the comment about a touch on the brakes. That guy lives in the real world. God gave us laughter and blessed us with Ken Davis. You make me laugh till it hurts! We love you Ken.

  14. I am of the belief that God created those who can make others laugh as an important tool of the kingdom. I used to think I used the comedy as a way to deal through my difficult times and then I realized by sharing the difficult times with friends using the humor of a situation left me feeling blessed and left them feeling blessed. I do a bit about my father’s funeral (all true) where a family member so excited to see someone at the wake, jumped up and knocked me into two large funeral arrangements, “Beloved Brother” and “Dear Uncle.” I attempted to move out of the arrangements but my father’s casket started to wobble. Finally a family member came up (after laughing for several minutes) and calmly plucked me out of the arrangement. I had a few stray pieces of baby’s breath in my hair and my mother looked at me in confusion and said, “Why did you put flowers in your hair? It doesn’t really look good.” When I tell that story, I always have someone come to me a few weeks later saying just thinking of that helped them through a funeral or wake.

  15. I’m gonna be the crazy lady who speeds down the nursing home hall on my Hoveround ..

  16. My son must think I’m a walking frog. He told my grandson that when the old frog croaks, they’re going to Disney World.

  17. With tears on my eyes… it’s ok to think of yourself as God’s gift…I’ve never even said that to any man before but I think I’ll use it! Just watched Fully Alive… “or Maybe it was an ángel.”

  18. I was on our way to drop my daughter to her dance class and Focus on the Family was on the Radio with Ken. Oh my Oh my, we laugh so hard listening to him. Life gets better and brighter when you smile and laugh… and sharing it with someone you love dearly.

    Thanks Ken.
