Hi I'm Kyle Rushton

I'm a college student on temporary leave to serve a full-time mission. I love what I do because I know it is true. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the church serving in Las Vegas, Nevada. Before my time as a missionary I attended college at Brigham Young University - Idaho for three years. I studied business, accounting, and finance. I love working with numbers and fixing problems that need to be solved. I love helping people in anyway that I can. Seeing anyone happy as a result of my help brings great joy to me. I was born and raised in western Washington and I enjoy a variety of recreational activities. I am the youngest of four children and I love my mother, father, and siblings very much.

Why I am a Mormon

If you are unfamiliar with Mormons, the reason that we are called that is because of The Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is the keystone of our religion, and that is why I am a Mormon. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I know that it is true. At the end of the Book of Mormon, a prophet strongly suggests that we pray to know if the Book of Mormon is true after we have read from it. We are promised that we may know from the Holy Ghost if the book is true. What is so important about the Book of Mormon? It is the foundation of our faith, and if you come to know that it is true, you will come to know that Christ's church was restored through a living prophet. Read it! There are many religions out there that teach great things that make people happy, but Jesus Christ's church is on the earth today and this is it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the things that I love most, making people smile, laugh and live a better life. The Bible and other scriptures teach of Jesus Christ and how he went about doing good constantly; always sacrificing His time and efforts for other people so that their lives could be more peaceful. I like to follow that example in a more modern way. I love to share with people what makes me feel happier every day and how they can feel that too. Because of the happiness and joy that I have received from God, I know that it is an even greater responsibility to go out and show that to other people. Growing up I spent a lot of time helping my family with things around our home because I knew obedience to my parents was important, but I realized that lasting joy comes from going out of my way to help someone in need. When I received a knowledge that Jesus Christ died for me, I decided to live for Him. I trust in Him completely, and I'm a child of God trying to do the very best that I can to help people see how they can one day receive a fullness of joy.
