Hi I'm Kyle

I'm a student. I'm a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up all over the Western United States (Utah, Oklahoma, Idaho, etc...), but my home is Washington State. I love to play the piano, french horn, and organ. In high school I was in the marching band, jazz band, and wind ensemble, but I love applying the gift of music to my faith. I was studying architecture at BYU-Idaho, but took a break to serve a two-year mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I grew up in the Mormon faith, I still had to gain a knowledge for myself that it is true. To some extent, this conversion to the gospel is a constant process. I have known for my entire life that God is my loving Heavenly Father. This knowledge is so strong that there is no room for doubt. However, I have questions all the time, and while at first these questions may shake my faith, through prayer and scripture study I gain a greater knowledge of the gospel and my faith is strengthened. I know that I can have a personal, spiritual relationship with my Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I strive to be as useful as I can wherever I am needed. When I was young, I was asked to sing frequently for church activities. Unfortunately, puberty took a toll on my singing voice and I instead was asked to play the piano or organ. As a teenager, I served a a leader in my scout troop and in my classes at church. If I saw an opportunity to help others by using the talents I have been given, I took it. Now I'm serving the people of the Brazil in a mission to bring people closer to Christ.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is our loving Heavenly Father. Just as a mother has undying love for her children, God will love us no matter what mistakes we make. He yearns for us to speak to him and build a relationship with him. God knows each of us individually and provided a plan whereby all mankind may be saved through Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
