Hi I'm Lyle

I'm a History student from the United States. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My parents brought their five children to Church regularly throughout my life. I served as a missionary in Virginia once I finished high school, and I am now married and studying at a university. I am learning the Arabic language as I continue graduate studies. My wife and I enjoy hiking and visiting our extended families.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings of Jesus Christ in the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and through modern prophets have been an inspiration to me throughout my life, and have brought me great satisfaction and support. As I learn about Christ and the gospel, and I live the lessons I learn, every part of my life becomes more beautiful and enjoyable. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I know that His truths are again being taught by living prophets, sent by Him.

How I live my faith

I enjoy getting to know people and helping them on a friendship basis or as part of an assignment through the Church. I belive that the gospel of Jesus Christ encourages us to worship God both through helping others and through participating in Church services. I enjoy participating in Sunday worship services, and attending temples regularly.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes. I belive that my wife and I can literally live in heaven together, with all the children that may be born to us while we are alive as mortals. We will remember our family relationship that we had together, and we will be able to improve it forever. This is part of the purpose of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and this eternal-marriage ceremony can only be done in a temple dedicated to the Lord. These are some of the most beautiful blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
