Hi I'm Kyle

I grew up in Idaho. I love pulling a 540 on a snowboard. I love my family. I am a Mormon

About Me

In any of my spare time I love to read a good book or hang out with friends. One of my greatest passions is to go snowboarding and I love to play indoor soccer, in some places they call it Calle. Basically I like to have a good time.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon has a lot to do with my family. I love them so much and they mean everything to me. I have learned that I can be with them for ever if I do what my Father in Heaven has asked of me, that is living His Son's Gospel. I was never really converted until my most basic testimony was challenged by someone who was actually very close to me. He told me that there is no God and growing up in a place where God is the center of everything threw me off a little bit. That is when I decided to look into the matter myself more fully. After careful study and prayer I have come to know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me irregardless of my faults and imperfections. That knowledge and testimony has led me to know that the Book of Mormon is true as well, which has helped me understand that Christ through a prophet has restored his church on the earth today. I am very grateful for opposition otherwise I would not have been able to come to know that.

How I live my faith

Right now I do have a bit of a unique calling in the church, I serve as a full time missionary where I am on of those guys who go from door to door and share this glad message with others. To be honest when I knock on a door I am probably just as scared as the person is who I am meeting for the very first time but I know that it will bless the lives of others. I really like going to church on Sunday it helps me feel really good throughout the week, in fact I don't know what I would do without it. My favorite part is being able to teach in a sit down setting, you know where they are actually expecting me to knock on the door and come in. The people I get to meet have so many different and unique situations it shows me how God has created us all individually. Gives me a purpose and direction for myself, letting me know that I am an individual.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Our largest part of our existence is to come to earth and obtain a body so we can experience the different trials and blessings that come from having one. When we take care of the body that God has given us then can we really experience the blessings of the world we get to live, in rather than being tied down to various addictions. We can feel great and feel the spirit so much more fully and be healthy enough to go the places that God has placed His hand upon and created. Show more Show less
