Hi I'm Kyle Maxfield

I love adventure. I'm a missionary in Jacksonville, Florida for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kyle and I love baseball, football, hunting and fishing. I enjoy serving in the best mission in the world, the Florida Jacksonville Mission! I'm really interested in the medical field. After my mission I plan on becoming an Occupational Therapist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it is truly the one thing that has made me happy in life. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know the principles that are taught are true and make me a better person each and every day. I know that it is the very church that Jesus Christ established with Prophets and Apostles. How do I know? I have read the Book of Mormon and found it is true through prayer. And although no one in the church is perfect, it's through Jesus Christ that we can become better every day. Even though the fullness of Jesus Christ's gospel was lost for a time, it was restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith and we now have another man on earth, Thomas S. Monson who is a living Prophet called of God.

How I live my faith

The best way is just to be an example. I live in a way so that people can tell there is a difference about me. Even though I'm not perfect, I try to show others the love that Jesus Christ has for everyone. Also, I took 2 years out of my life to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Kyle Maxfield
I know that we come to this earth to receive a physical body and we can experience the joys and blessings of life. But also so we can experience the disappointments and trials of life so that we can better ourselves and make the changes that we need to so that we can return back to our Father in Heaven someday.
