Hi I'm Kyle

I'm a Mechanical Engineering Major. I enjoy the outdoors. I love spending time with my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student. I am studying mechanical engineering. I have always liked challenging myself and love everything about the schooling I am doing. I am also an avid sports fan, it really doesn't matter whether I am playing or watching and I have yet to find a sport I don't enjoy doing. One of my favorites though is watching our school Hockey team win a close game. There doesn't seem to be anything more intense. I also love spending time outdoors. Backpacking is one of my favorite things to do when I have got the time for it. Just getting out into the mountains far from anyone or civilization. It is a great place to meditate and contimplate life. Not to mention the scenery is so incredible. I also love spending time with my family. I am a strong believer that time spent together is important and that is the best way to grow together as a family.

Why I am a Mormon

 Well I grew up a member of the church, but as time went on I kind of had to gain a testimony of my own. The way I started to gain that was to test things. Sometimes I didn't even realize that I was testing some of the gospel standards, I was just living my life the best way I knew how. I love the peace that the gospel brings to my life. I cannot imagine myself without it. I have come to realize for myself the best way to gain a testimony though is to pray about it and ask God if these things are true. Whatever I am worried about just lay it out on the line and wait for that answer. I know that God will let us know if we ask in faith and that the Holy Ghost will give us an answer.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by trying everyday to be the best person that I can be. I know that as we try to help others that is a great way to serve the Lord. I am a strong believer that the Lord helps people through others. I have received help from others in my life and it only makes sense to me to go out and help others. That is not only going to help them but at the end of the day it is going to make anybody doing service feel so much better. It is such a blessing in my life to help others. I also strive to keep the commandments and do the things that Jesus Christ taught us to do.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

 No, although it is encouraged nobody is forced to do anything. You are always allowed to choose whether or not you want to do anything including serve a mission. I chose to though to help people find the joy that the Gospel can bring to their lives Show more Show less
