Hi I'm Elder Kyson Spendlove

I grew up in Hurricane, Utah. I graduated from Hurricane High in 2015. I am serving a mission for the church and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kyson. I am the youngest of 5 kids in my family. I love to play the piano and cello. My favorite sports are soccer and volleyball. I have been a member of student council in my school. I love getting the chance to be a leader, and I am serving an LDS Spanish speaking mission in the Texas Fort Worth. I love the gospel and I know it can help families and individuals feel more peace and happiness in there lives.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because I have felt in my heart that is was right. When I was young I went to church and went through the motions because all my family did. Finally one day I thought, "why don't I just find out for myself?" So that is what I did. I read the Book of Mormon all the way through and then prayed about it and felt that it was true! One day I was struggling to remember how I knew the gospel was true and how I knew that I had a Heavenly Father who knew me by name, and loved me. That same day I was given a blessing by my stake president while he was giving me a new calling. In that blessing he specifically told me, "Kyson, your Father in Heaven does know you by name, and he loves and cares for you each and everyday." That I believe is when I truly knew that the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the LDS church was the only true church on the earth. And I knew then that I wanted to for sure go on an LDS mission to teach others what I know and have. Being a Mormon to me is not a restriction In my freedoms but something that helps me truly become free from addiction and heartache. It is a way to find true happiness and joy. The gospel is a way to become like our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have held many positions in my ward and community. I am home a teacher and love teaching people about the monthly message put out by the prophet and his counselors each month on Lds.org. I was an assistant to the stake president for my stakes mission preparation class. Also I have been in charge of many youth activities such as church dances and youth trips. And I currently am serving a mission for the church for 2 years.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Elder Kyson Spendlove
The prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He works with his two counselors; Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uchtdorf. I love the Prophet and his counselors because I know that they do the will of the Lord and love everyone no matter who they are. Show more Show less
