Hi I'm Lyle

I'm a husband, father, engineer and bishop. I enjoy the outdoors, playing music, adventures with my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised on a small farm in Northern Utah with 4 brothers and 3 sisters. I am an Eagle Scout along with my four brothers. We enjoy backpacking and 4-wheeling in the mountains. I served an LDS mission in Oakland California. I have served in many callings in the church including several responsibilities in the Young Men's program including a scoutmaster for many years. I am currently serving as a Bishop of our LDS ward. I am an engineer, I work for a great company in the Global Operations Development Department in Boulder Colorado. I have the opportunity to travel to many places around the world for work and I enjoy visiting new places and getting to know different people. My family consists of a wonderful wife, a son and three daughters. My most favorite thing is spending time with my family and creating adventures together.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church by a good LDS family. I have strong Mormon Pioneer roots, but I have studied Jesus Christ and His teachings for years and I have come to know for myself through several powerful witnesses from the Holy Ghost that the Gospel found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I have read and studied the Book of Mormon and I know it is a companion to the Bible and they both contain the word of God. I know there are prophets and apostles on the earth today, just like there were in ancient times, who speak for the Lord and provide direction to His people and to all those who will listen. I know that God, our Father in Heaven, lives and His son, Jesus Christ, is the Savior and redeemer of all mankind. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try my best to be a good husband to the most beautiful woman in the world, a father to the four best kids a man could ever have, the best employee I can be and I serve well in my church and community. I try to recognize the hand of the Lord Jesus Christ in all my blessings and try to become more like Him every day.
