Hi I'm Kyle Beaver

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I study Sociology and Criminology at Oregon State University. I'm like fishing, hiking, recreational shooting, or pretty much anything outdoors. I'm really into aircraft and studying aviation history on my free time. I listen to a lot of movie/video game soundtrack music more than I listen to any other genre. My favorite movie genre is family, specifically Disney; my favorite Disney movie is "The Lion King".

Why I am a Mormon

The feeling I get when I'm in Church, studying the scriptures, or bearing my testimony to other people makes me immeasurably happy, like nothing I've ever felt while investigating other Christian Churches.

How I live my faith

Every morning I wake up and read the Book of Mormon or The Holy Bible for at least 10 minutes before doing anything else in my day. This way, I start off my day with a message from God and His Prophets. I also try to take "Institute" classes that's offered at my local ward during the day. Sometimes when I'm out for walk or out fishing I try to think about passages I've read in the Book of Mormon or The Holy Bible and think about how they relate to my life and anything I may be going through. Also, the Church has scriptures available for most smart phones, they're completely free and include the entire Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price. The app also includes the "Ensign" magazine as well as most of the student manuals of the Church. Having this on my phone has greatly helped me read while in between classes or when I don't have a hard copy of the scriptures available.
