Hi I'm Kyle

I grew up in Ogden, Utah. I'm a retired auditor. I'm a husband and the father of 1 son and 3 daughters; and a grandpa.

About Me

I love sports, particularly tennis, racquetball, volleyball, skiing and baseball. Even though I'm an old man of close to 60, I still love to participate in these things. My wife and my children are my best friends and we do a lot of family activities. I just recently retired after working as an auditor for 34 years. I traveled extensively with my job and learned to love to visit different places. My favorite place to visit was NY City. My favorite family activity used to be boating and water skiing. Now it's playing games with my children and their spouses and my granddaughter. I also love playing a game called wallyball (volleyball in a racquetball court). I play as often as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Book of Mormon touched my life. I first read it at age 24. While I was reading it, I started attending church and praying regularly. I became a better man. After reading the Book of Mormon the first time, I didn't feel like I received an answer....but I just felt like a better man, so I read it again. I prayed fervently and asked the Lord to let me know if it was true. Through the witness of the Holy Ghost I got my answer. It changed me forever. Since then, I have been an active member of the Church. I married my wife in the temple. My wife and I have been blessed to have 4 beautiful children who are sealed to us for time and all eternity. Two of them have also been married for eternity in the temple.

How I live my faith

Most of my adult life I have worked with the young people of the Church (either teen age youth or young adults). I taught classes on Sundays and participated in weekly activities with them. Our activities included things like community service projects, cultural activities, sporting events, outdoor hiking and camping. The youth would often come to my home for lessons and game nights. We would have a short spiritual lesson and then play games with my family.
