Hi I'm Kyle Larsen

I grew up in Utah, I've been a member of the church for my entire life, I love the Gospel I've come to know, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kyle and I'm a student, a wrestler, a son and brother. I've grown up in the church and have come to gain a testimony of this gospel for myself from my own personal experiences. Who I am has been shaped by influences from my Family, Wrestling, my Religion and everybody else who has come to be a part of my family through this experiences. I'm currently a High School student and I've just received a mission call to Antofagasta Chile. I've been completely dedicated to wrestling for the last 12 years and it's taught me most everything I know about people and the amount of work actually required to be successful in life. In school I've been studying into medicine which has become a profound interest to me and even helped to build my testimony. In the off months I'll often spend as much time with family and friends in the outdoors as possible, typically on a lake boating but as long as were enjoying ourselves and growing closer I'll be satisfied.

Why I am a Mormon

My Conversion story is a very gradual one. As a younger boy I relied much more heavily on my parents testimonies, I trusted them so I trusted what they believed. This might appear to be ignorant to some but sometimes in order to understand something you need to just follow and feel your way through it and come to a decision about it yourself. This is exactly what I've done, I haven't always known what I now know but what I did have was a desire to know what is true and what I should believe.

How I live my faith

My faith has become a primary role in my life. Through a combination of lessons taught to me by wrestling coaches and church leaders, I've come to realize the best way to convey a message of faith and love is not necessarily through words and discussions. Instead serving and going and doing is the perfect way for to learn and share what I know. My faith is nearly entirely based on service. Christ didn't simply go talk to us imperfect people about what he needed to share with us, he went out showing his love to us through his actions. Another responsibility I feel is required of my faith is that I need to fulfill my calling in teaching the 11 year old boys in our primary. I realize this is a cliche but I feel that I've learned more then I've taught in there. I've been reminded about the simplicity of the gospel and just how important the basics really are. This idea of just how pure and simple everything really is has helped me when I render service and try to be a better example to the young boys I teach and those around me.
