Hi I'm Kyle

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of a beautiful little girl, and husband to my best friend. I am currently going to college, and hoping to one day become a dentist. My hobbies include hiking, camping, remodeling the house, playing sports, and sleeping (when I can find the time). My favorite musician is Eric Clapton, however, I enjoy listening to many varieties of music.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was Mormon, and over the past 10 years I have discovered that I very much enjoy the Mormon religion and lifestyle. I think the most appealing part of the Mormon lifestyle is that I always feel like I am becoming a better person. I've never felt that being a Mormon has restricted me from enjoying life. If anything, it's brought me happiness. I feel that my membership in the Mormon church helps me to come closer to our Heavenly Father and it also helps me to establish a personal relationship with Christ. I know that it is only through Jesus Christ that we can truly be happy.

How I live my faith

At church, I have the opportunity to help our Bishop to serve the members of our congregation. Although at times it can be difficult, I know that my contribution in the church helps bless many lives--including my own family members. I also have noticed that I feel good about myself as I serve and help others.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Kyle
Because members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints hold The Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ in conjunction with the Bible, many use the nickname Mormon's to describe members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This nickname was probably given because the full title of the church can be rather long. Most Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints would not find the term Mormon an offensive or derogatory term, However the term Mormon is not accurate when describing someone from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because they Worship Jesus Christ and not Mormon.
