Hi I'm Kyle

I was born and raised in Alberta, Canada. I have been a latter-day saint Mormon my whole life and it's brought be so much joy.

About Me

My name is Kyle, and I am from Alberta, Canada. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints (Mormon) my whole life. My parents are converts to the church and joined when I was only a baby, I loved growing up in the church, I have made lifelong friends in my church where I grew up. When I was old enough I saved up some money so I could serve a mission for the church, I was called to serve a mission in San Jose California, and I loved it there. After my 2 year mission, I came home and went to college to learn about computers. After a year of college I did some work in the oil fields of Northern Alberta, than I met my future wife who lived in Idaho. After getting a Visa I moved to the United States and got married. My wife and I just recently bought our first house and I'm attending college nearby. I love creating things, I enjoy creating websites and Digital art, I love reading and writing Science fiction and I am a huge Star Trek fan. Being a Canadian I Love Hockey, it's my favorite sport. I also enjoy camping, fishing, boating, Hiking, Biking and spending time with my wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I kind of took my faith for granted when I was younger, but as time moved on and as I became old enough to go on a mission, I had to seriously ask myself if I truly believed that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints was the true church of Christ, if it really had been restored to the earth by Christ himself through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I prayed about it and I took much time pondering these things in my heart. When the time came, I felt it was right, I knew it was right, so I filled out the paper work to go on a mission and was soon called to San Jose, California. On my mission I had many experiences which further built up my faith and belief in the LDS church, I've had prayers answered and experienced many miracles, all of which helped me to draw closer to the Lord. It was a wonderful blessing to witness people become members of the kingdom of God through baptism and to see the changes and the increased happiness that entered their lives. After my mission I continued to work on building up my faith through scripture study and service. I am a Mormon because I know that the church is the true church of Christ, restored again to the earth by modern day prophets. I know that this church is true because it has the same organization as the original church found in the Bible, with Prophets and Apostles, Teachers and Deacons, Bishops and Priests. There is a saying that you can judge if something is of God by its works, and the works of this church is service and charity. This church helps you grow, it helps you become more than who you are and offers so much happiness in this life and in the life to come. Faith is like a muscle and if you stop using it, it becomes weaker, and so even now I am still building my faith in Christ through scripture study, prayer and service.

How I live my faith

In everything I do, I strive to serve others. I try to help my neighbors when they need it and to be there for those in need. My wife is a great example to me in this; she is so much better at serving others than I am and so I try to follow her example in that area as I know she is following the example of Christ. Before my wife and I moved, we both had jobs in the church building (ward) that we were attending. My wife was part of the women’s church organization where she helped set up activities for the women. My job in our ward was to be the Wolf leader of the Boy Scouts; I really enjoyed it and loved spending time teaching the Wolves new skills. In our new ward, my wife and I are trying to get to know everyone and we are excited to have a chance to serve here. Life as a Mormon is all about service and growth; it's about helping those around you, lifting others up and becoming a friend to everyone around you.
