Hi I'm Kyle Vosika

Grew up in Oregon. Im a Wrestler. I laugh. I'm a proud Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Potland Oregon. Where I have lived all my life. I had one of the best childhoods that a kid could ever ask for. My family was not rich nor could we have everything we ever wanted, but I had amazing parents that loved me. I lived a life full of sports. I may not have been the best at the sports I played but I loved to do them. Wrestling was my main passion. I played football and baseball as well. I served as a missionary for two years for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint from March 2010- March 2012. There, my take on life and the after life changed. My faith in God and his son Jesus Christ came to life, and I myself changed from a menus to society to one who wants to give, so I can return to my Heavenly Father I appriciate what He has done for me. I love God and I love that he has molded me into His best projection of me.

Why I am a Mormon

When I get just a little bit of something good I do all I can to get more. I was the little kid that was always first in line to get dinner and desert at a family gathering or a barbeque just so I could make sure that I was going to be able to get seconds as soon as I could. I was so worried that all the good stuff was going to be gone, that I wasn’t going to be able t get more of what I loved from the first time going around. This relates to me and the message of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have tasted of the sweetness that the spirit brings when I read the Book of Mormon and I just can’t wait to get more. What I love about it is that I can keep going back for more and it will never run out. As I grew up, going to school, I wanted to fit in anywhere anyone would accept me. If I was liked by the jocks then I clanged to the jocks. If I had a friend that smoked, I would stick around him. I would go anywhere that considered me a friend. I didn’t have the best standards and I let the temptations of the world get the best of me. It someone told me that something was cool then I let myself do those “cool” things so that I could fit in. I didn’t even necessarily want to do those things but, I did them and I can testify that not a single time did those things make me feel good. That is why I love to being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The people that I am around persuade me to have high standards and influence me to do good. I love what have become due to the surrounding, positive attitudes of friends that I have developed and habits I have formed. I know exactly what my life would be like if I did not have the knowledge of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints being true. It would not be centered in Christ, and it would not be happy. There are more important things to me now, and I can say that I am on the direct path that Christ wants me to be on. This will lead directly to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

For me, to learn something I have to be hands on. The way I live my faith is by DOING the things that Christ taught me to do by his example, and by his example I can BE like him. I come to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true by experience. There was no time in my conversion that I felt like a building fell on top of me and I suddenly knew the church was true or struck by lightning and I had some epiphany. It was a gradual thing that when I heard something and I listened and obeyed, blessings came and I knew that only God could produce such a thing. As I continued to obey the commandments and read the Book of Mormon, the blessings and promised thing that were promised to me that would happen, happened. Therefore I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the one true church because the faith that I haved gained through exercise. God rewarded me with very generous answers though the gift of the Holy Ghost.
