Hi I'm Kyle

I'm a Texan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the great state of Texas. I have a sister who is about three years older than me, and two amazing parents. Our family loves boating and anything associated with it. Over the summer we would go almost weekly out to the lake to wake-board, ski, and get sunburned. I worked as a factory worker making industrial vacuums for three summers, so I know what hard manual labor is like. I went to BYU for a year, and I was called to serve as a missionary to the Sofia Bulgaria mission, Turkish speaking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. I was baptized at 8 and have been active in going to meetings, activities, and seminary throughout my life. What I have realized in this time is that gaining a testimony of this Gospel is a lifelong process. I could relate stories of times where I felt the Spirit so strongly, and that I knew this church was true. But there are also times where I felt down, and where I had my doubts. What has helped me come through all this is a simple trust and faith in Jesus Christ. I know there is a purpose for me on this Earth. I know that if I endure the hard times, I will be blessed and that everything in the life happens for a purpose. I am a Mormon because I know that this Gospel shows the true pathway to happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to always be a representative of Jesus Christ. I try to go about daily serving and loving others as He did, and forgetting about my own self interests in the process. I have been through the church's youth program; including the scouting program in particular. I was able to rise to the Eagle Scout rank in scouting by age 14. This taught me service and hard work in my early years. During my year at college I was in charge of coordinating activities each week for a group of about 12 students. Each week I tried to plan activities that were uplifting, but enjoyable.
