Hi I'm Kylan

I have lived in Utah my entire life. I love to play soccer. I am fun-loving and the best part is, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a teenage boy who is preparing to serve an LDS mission in the Canada Toronto mission. I leave August 13, 2014, and will be serving there for two years. My hobbies include (but are not limited to) soccer, reading, watching movies, anything outdoors, and looking for anything fun to do! I love to be very active. I enjoy rock climbing, white water rafting, canoeing, camping, hiking, and anything outside. I love watching tv shows, some of my favorites are Psych and White collar. I love trying new things. I love being around people

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of this church. It's been something I've always understood and accepted. But like any teenager, I began to have questions. Why do I have to go to church every Sunday? Is this church really true? Do I believe what I've been taught my whole life? Questions like these lead me to search for the answers, on my own. I decided to read the scriptures sincerely, because I was directed too by my seminary teacher. In doing so, I felt a personal connection to the stories that are told in the scriptures. And after praying about whether or not it was true, I felt that those stories really did happen. I knew in my heart that it was all true. Now, I am leaving my family and friends, skipping out on college for two years, to serve a mission. It is my hope and prayer to spread the joy in the knowledge that I have grown to love with the people who have not yet had that opportunity in Canada. I know this church is true. I know it with all my heart. I know the joy I feel comes from Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for me. He died for me. He loves me. He is patient with me. I know that through Christ I can be saved. I thank him daily for all that he blesses me with. I know I am very blessed to be a member of His church. I hope that I can effectively share this message with others so that they can learn of Christ's love for them and for all of his children.

How I live my faith

I have been a Mormon my entire life. At eighteen years old, I still attend church faithfully every Sunday. I am a leader in my youth groups such as boy scouts and a church youth leader. I love serving the youth of the church because I feel that I can help people. I love serving people. I am an Eagle Scout and have served a lot of people in my community. Helping people is one of my fortes if you will. I find a ton of enjoyment for myself when I am in service to other people. Leading through example, I hope to share that message with people who are around me.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

PRAY!!! Communicate with your Father in Heaven if you want to know him! Ask him questions, express the desires of your heart, and I guarantee from personal experience that he will communicate back to you his love. Pay attention to the feelings in your heart from the Holy Ghost. Those "fruits of the spirit" will never lead you astray! I know that God loves you enough to answer your prayers. Show more Show less
