Hi I'm Gyle

I'm excited to share my profile with you and help you understand why I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born of pioneer stock. My Greatgrandfather was an early church leader and colonizer, mostly in Southeastern Idaho. I am a businessman, and am able to travel to many parts of the country with my company, thus enabling me to see many beautiful and interesting places. I am a Husband, Father of four and Grandfather of four, with children living in 4 different States, but yet close enough that we can be together on special occasions. Since we live close to the mountains, we enjoy camping and riding our ATV's, enjoying the beautiful views. We love living in Colorado.

Why I am a Mormon

I am from a multi-generational Mormon heritage, and while I feel an obligation to honor their memory with my own faithfulness in the Church, I have also been exposed to other religions, as well as having close friends from many different faiths. Why I remain a Mormon is because of the values that the Chuch teaches. Those of being a good citizen, being honest in my dealings, living a healthy lifestyle, and promoting strong close families. It also makes sense to me that Christ did, in fact establish a real Church upon the Earth while he was here, and that the authority of that early Church was lost through the dark ages, and required a restoration of all authority. I believe that was done in 1820, through the faith and prayers of a young boy, seeking truth about religion. I am proud to uphold that believe and share in it's values.

How I live my faith

I have always been actively involved in my Church. I personally served a two-year mission in England for the church, and my children have followed suit, with three of them serving each in the Western U.S. I have never turned down a request to serve in the Church in any capacity that I have been asked. I've served in everything to caring for children in a nursery to serving on councils overseeing several congregations. I am currently serving as a Bishop in the Church, which is a lay assignment (as are all church "callings"), where I spend approximately 30 hours per week leading and overseeing a congregation.
