Hi I'm Kyle Gene

I'm A Husband, A Dad of Two, A Student, A political Junkie, And A Mormon

About Me

I recently took a huge leap and Moved my family across country to go to school. About 1300 miles away from my parents and siblings. To move so far away from where I was born and raised has been an exciting one, and I sure hope I made the right decision lol. I hope to Graduate in 2015 with a BA in Mass Marketing Communications. I served a mission for my LDS faith for 2 years to Iowa...... ya Iowa you read that right! I owe much of my growing up and learning how to manage responsibilities from my mission as well as having my own family for 3 years now!

Why I am a Mormon

Cause when I pray I feel that connection that goes beyond believing to knowing that God lives. I can literally feel that He is pleased with me as I read my Bible/Book of Mormon and choose to go to His church. His power is with the LDS people.

How I live my faith

Day by day my friend, day by day... - I am a father, a husband, the bread winner, the evening prayerer....is that a word?, the doctrine buff, the comedic relief, and much much more. I mention all this because my faith is all inclusive, everything I do I try (emphasize on "try") to be like Jesus. When I wake up we pray as a family, we read scriptures, we read the news of what happens everywhere in the world and try to make a difference in some small way. We attempt to carry the Light of Christ with us that we can be a force for good.

Why don't Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church's law of health and proper diet?

Kyle Gene
I don't drink it cause it smells nasty...lol. But the main reason why we don't drink those things is cause we know that God wants us to take good care of our bodies. He encourages us to eat what is given to us in the form of vegetables, fruits, grains, and other wholesome foods. Alcohol, tea, and coffee weaken our bodies and may cause us to rely on these drinks to live. I have plenty of friends who "can't" function with out their coffee, tea, etc. Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Kyle Gene
When it comes to God He is a God of order. Just like the jews of old had to follow Moses not Pharaoh to get closer to God, so to do we have to follow the chosen servants in our day to come close to Him and no one else will do. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Kyle Gene
Well for one we'll live forever, because of Jesus Christ and the work He did we will live with our flesh and bone bodies forever. Those who truly follow Jesus Christ in this life will live with Him and The Father in Heaven forever. Show more Show less
