Hi I'm Kyle

I am from Seattle, Washington, and love basketball and being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

Hi I am Kyle, and basketball is what I do! However, I am taking a break from what has been a major part of all my life and going on an LDS mission. I have been called to serve in the Uruguay Montevideo West Mission! I report December 1, 2011! I could not be more excited to serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as an ordained Elder in His church. After my mission I plan on attending Cornell University and playing basketball for them. I love life, and cannot wait to be able to serve. Only a few short months left!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the witness I have gained over the past 19 years of my life. I have never had that "AHA" moment, however slowly and surely like the seed that Alma describes, my testimony has grown into what it is today. Many have asked why I have chosen to commit my life to the church, and my one answer is that it is true. There is no other organization on earth that can help you feel the spirit, or is more correct then Christ's restored church. I have been a member my entire life, and look forward to serving with all my might mind and strength to bring other souls to the joy I have found.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith? I live my faith every day by obeying what our inspired leaders have advised us to do, and soon I will be living the truth through constant service in Uruguay!

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

The purpose of life is simple.. Joy.. it is the entire reason we are her upon this earth, and it is our Heavenly Father's purpose "to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." Eternal life of man means living with our Heavenly Father forever in his kingdom. What else could bring the joy that is our purpose in life? Joy is the reason for which I obey the commandments, it is what I get when I follow Christ's example, and it is our purpose here on earth. Show more Show less
