Hi I'm Kyle

I’m an ordinary man blessed with an extraordinary wife. I’m a father of 3, a Seminary Teacher, a basketball fan, and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Florida and raised in a military family. After bouncing from place to place I finally settled in AZ after graduating from Brigham Young University. I love everything about Arizona and wouldn’t you know it, I ended up marrying a beautiful girl from here. We have been married for almost 9 years and have been blessed with 3 adorable children. Everything I do is for my family. They are who I live for. When I’m not at home you’ll find me at the local LDS seminary. I’m a seminary teacher, which means I teach High School students courses in the scriptures. I love playing with my children and going on dates with my wife. Whether it’s swimming in the pool, swinging the bat, or reading a good book, it’s always good when my family is there.

Why I am a Mormon

I love what the Gospel of Jesus Christ does for my family. Because of the truths taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I know that my family and the relationships we have here on earth will continue after this life. My life and my family have purpose and meaning. The Gospel gives me hope. To know that my relationship with my sweet wife will never end is more than I could ever ask for. It instills in me a knowledge of the certainty and reality that there is a God in Heaven who loves me and has a plan for me and my family. I know why I’m here on earth and what will happen afterward. Why am I Mormon? Basically, it makes me happy!

How I live my faith

My faith is a way of life. My faith is who I am and what I do. It’s in how I treat others. Essentially, it is to follow the example of Jesus Christ, as “he went about doing good.” It is to love people unconditionally, to not make rash judgments of others, but rather to seek to bless lives and alleviate burdens. It’s to see that my child has had a rough day and to scoop him up in my arms and nuzzle him. It’s to kneel down and rub my wife’s feet after her countless hours of chasing after and tending the children. It’s taking time to talk to the cashier at Wal-mart who has obviously had a stressful day. It’s to write a short note of appreciation to your neighbor for their friendship. Knowing that I fall very short of this ideal, this is what I strive to do. It is a constant and daily process, of which I will never stop trying. Believing Jesus Christ and following His example is what I have promised to do as a baptized member of His church.
