Hi I'm Kyle Merrill

I grew up in North Ogden, Utah. I'm just an ordinary kid that loves to play soccer and run and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kyle, I was born in Ogden Utah. I love all sports but I especially love soccer and cross country. I have an amazing mom and dad that have always been great examples to me. I also have three older brothers that are always there for me and have also been amazing examples to me. I was born into a Mormon family and although I was raised in the church I have still had my own experiences that let me know that this is the true church. I have done things that I know were not right but I strive everyday to do better than the day before.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I am Mormon because I believe that Jesus Christ died for me so that I could repent of my sins. I have chosen to be a member because I have had so many personal experiences that the spirit has testified to me that this is His true church and that He loves and cares about me. I follow His gospel because without it I would not be the same person. I would not be living the same life that I am right now. I follow His gospel because I know it to be true.

How I live my faith

I am the President in the priests (16-18 year old age group) quorum. Me and my two counselors plan an activity each week for the quorum to get together and have fun and spiritual experiences. We often play some kind of sport or watch movies at someones house. I also hometeach with my dad. We visit two families once a month to give them a spiritual message and to ask if they need any help with anything in their lives. I love doing this because I get to know my ward members more and it is always fun.
