Hi I'm Kyle

I've lived in nine states in the US. I throw darts, create and edit videos and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently purchased a DJI Phantom quad-copter, which both my wife and I are practicing flying. My friends have the Hero 3+ and we are starting to get in flight video. I've also produced and edited programs for the local community access television channel. I like reading science fiction, and David Weber's Honor Harrington series is a favorite of mine.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young boy, I remember going to my grandmother's church and hearing of Jesus Christ. I recall thinking, "Oh yeah, I know Him!" I've been blessed with knowing Jesus is the Christ and Savior of this world - I have never, and can never doubt it. When I was a few years older, I learned of the church and was baptized. We were a part-member family, and not very active. By the time I was 18, I had drifted to "forbidden paths" (as the scriptures put it). At 31, I finally matured (somewhat ;] ) and when I received a post card from the local Bishop, I went back to church. I can still remember the feeling of peace that swept through my body as soon as I walked into the Chapel. It was like coming back to the home I grew up in. It was slightly different than I remembered, but still full of memories. This was November 1997, and the blessings in my life started immediately. In January 1998, I met my current wife, we were married in April and have been together ever since. The first years back were very hard. I had a lot of bad habits to break free of. Even today, I struggle most days against echos of habits and temptations from my time of wandering. I use Repentance daily. I seek Christ daily. I strive to be better today, than I was yesterday. AND IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT! I invite you to seek out the Spirit of God with sincerity. He will testify of the truth of all things.

How I live my faith

I'm the ward clerk. I love this calling, and while I will readily agree to whatever the next calling is the Lord wants me to do, I will be sad when I am no longer ward clerk. I love the interactions with other members and visitors being ward clerk "forces" me to make. People are great!

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Donating 10% of my "annual increase" is a function of faith. It demonstrates I acknowledge all I have comes from God, and is really His. It allows me to remember that money is not my God, nor is it the purpose I am on the world to achieve. Show more Show less
