Hi I'm Kyle Lontine

I grew up in Broomfield, Colorado. I love rugby, working out and being with my wife and family.

About Me

I come from a family of five. My mother and brothers are mormon but my father and stepmom/stepsisters are catholic. I have two older brothers: Jordan and Derek. We are all from Colorado and are huge Broncos/Nuggets fans. We love sports, everything from football to rugby, lacrosse etc. My brothers and I have played on the rugby team at Brigham Young University (an LDS university). I am currently attending this university pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering. I will graduate at the end of 2015. I really enjoy being with my wife and family and hope in the near future to have kids of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it gives me a sense of personal, temporal, and spiritual security and motivation in my life. By living what is taught by this faith, I can live day to day with purpose. I know who I am living for (my wife and family) and what our end goal is (life forever with our families and God). I couldn't imagine a life without the knowledge that I have because I feel like I wouldn't have a direct motivation for anything I do. Living the commandments that are often perceived as restrictions or rules in fact give us more happiness and peace that we would look for doing other things. I have a very solid family. I know that this is one blessing that has come solely from the LDS church. If anyone is looking for a way to recover/mend any sort of relationship, no matter what has happened in the past, living the teachings of the Savior and of His church (the LDS church) will provide a healing remedy to give new life to these relationships. I know that there is a second chance for anyone that truely desires it. With hard work and diligence, we can all get on the path that the Savior desires us to be on. It is not easy at times, but it will always give us the true, genuine happiness we are looking for.

How I live my faith

I have been LDS for my whole life and have participated in different facets of the church organization. I served as a full-time missionary for two years in Guatemala City, Guatemala. That was one of the most incredible experiences that I was able to have. I went door to door talking with different people about the gospel and meeting new friends and families and helping them through life struggles (alcoholism, deaths in family, divorce, etc). I also have served in youth organizations as a leader of the 12-13 year old boys organizing scouting trips, weekly activites, and service projects. I also have been an instructor for the men's pristhood meetings on sundays during the regular meeting hours.
