Hi I'm Kyle

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised on a farm in southern Colorado. This was a great way to grow up, and gave me a lot of freedom to explore the world around me. It eventually led to my deep love for science. Pursuing this passion, I recently graduated with a B.S. in chemical engineering and I'm currently in a graduate program focused on energy related issues. I'm a big believer in taking care of the world around us. It is a gift to us from a loving God, and I hope to show my appreciation for it by making sure that I do my best to never take it for granted. In my free time, I enjoy reading (almost anything), skateboarding, making music, learning and, most of all, spending time with my amazing wife and family.

Why I am a Mormon

Knowledge of the existence of God and His plan for us is the most important thing anyone in this world could strive for. I've spent a lot of time in my life contemplating questions that many people have asked before me. Do I have any significance in the grand scheme of the universe? Do my choices and actions matter? How can we really know anything? One of the reasons that I'm a Mormon is because when I have asked these questions to God in prayer, I have received answers that I cannot deny. I know on an intuitive level, in some deep inner part of myself, that the teachings of Jesus Christ as revealed through prophets throughout history (including today) are true, and that they are the only things that can make me truly happy. I have seen proof of this as I have incorporated principles taught by Christ into my life and experienced happiness that no possession or knowledge could give me. God loves each one of his children and has given me personal understanding of his love as I have sought answers from him.

How I live my faith

I believe that religion is an end unto itself, as opposed to the means to some eternal end or consequence. It's not how we will be judged in the end that's really important, as much as the satisfaction and happiness that can be gained throughout our existence by adhering to the teachings of the gospel. My parents taught me from a very young age that God loves all of his children unconditionally, and I strive to do my best every day to treat people that way. The relationships that can be formed through service and understanding of God's love can be so much deeper and more satisfying than those formed by any common interest. Being willing to help others and looking for opportunities to do so is the best way I know how to live my faith.
