Hi I'm Kohle Lorenzo Newbold

I was born Salt Lake City Utah and raised in Bountiful. I am currently preparing for my LDS Mission, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a large family that loves each other and usually gets along very well. They have helped shape me into who I am today. Because of them I have gained everything that I have at this time. I love playing sports. Anything that allows me to compete and have fun, I am all for it. I have played football, basketball and run track at varsity levels and thoroughly enjoyed them all. I also love reading good books that grab my attention and can help me understand things in a new perspective. When I return home from my mission I intend to pursue a career as an orthopedic surgeon and start a family of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ has given me hope and knowledge of a better future. As I have studied and sought to know more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have come to the assurance and sure knowledge that it is true. By reading the Book of Mormon daily I have had my testimony of Jesus Christ grow and know that Christ loves me and was willing to die for me. Because of this I know that I can repent and be forgiven of all my sins, thus allowing me to return to my Father in Heaven. For that I am eternally grateful and am doing my best to live in a manner that is pleasing unto Him. It is true! All of it! I know that without a shadow of a doubt.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by how I act and live my life. I do my best to live all of the commandments of the Lord, regardless of how hard it may be, or how it may leave me out of activities others are doing. I've learned that the only opinion I truly care about is that of my Heavenly Father's, so I intend to do all that I can to please Him. In my community I serve when I am called upon and have specific callings that I have the privilege of attending to each month. I have three wonderful families that I hometeach. It is very enjoyable to sit down and get to know these members of my community on a more personal level and learn of their goodness and kindness towards me and others.
