Hi I'm Kyle Remund

I was born in Idaho, but grew up in Utah. I'm an engineer, a writer, an actor, and a huge nerd. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving a full-time mission in Tacoma, Washington! Once I get back, I'll be attending college at the University of Utah, where I'm studying Chemical Engineering. I'm also writing a slew of stories that I plan to tell through books, video games, and animated series. I've worked many different jobs over the years, from fast food to scout camp to a haunted house. One of my passions is performance, and I absolutely love putting on a show!

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and of His church. God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, did in reality show themselves unto Joseph Smith, as they have to prophets both in ancient and modern times, and revealed unto him their will and their gospel. The gospel is the 'good news,' not just in translation from ancient languages, but also in our lives. It is the joy that keeps me going through bitter trials, it is the hope that pushes me onward, it is the news of our Savior, who died for us and gave us everything that we need to be freed from death and our own mistakes. Nothing could be better news. I am a Mormon because I've seen God's hand in my life. I've felt His love for me and His power as I learned to draw closer to Him. He is our loving Heavenly Father, and I love him. I can never thank Him enough for the blessings that He has given me, and the times He saved me from the deepest despair.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by holding myself to a high standard and lending help to those around me. I've taken part in and organized several community service projects, but I've also spent years willing to lend a hand on a whim. I strive to become more Christlike, on a daily basis when I can manage, as I go throughout my life. He is the ultimate example, and I want to become more like Him.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Kyle Remund
Yes, He did. In fact, it was mentioned in the Bible. Christ Himself said "Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold." the people of America were those "Other sheep" He mentioned. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Kyle Remund
There is opposition in all things. You know how it's really hard to post an opinion online without offending anyone? Well, imagine trying to restore the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a world full of argumentative human beings. People who only heard bits and pieces of the restored doctrine, or were so caught up in their own beliefs that they didn't like hearing anything different, often developed harsh and unsubstantiated concerns about the Church based off of what little they had heard. If you only hear about what makes you different, it's much easier to dislike and even hate the "other one." That's why it's so important to hear the whole story. We Mormons are, in fact, Christian. We may be organized differently than many Catholic or Protestant churches, but the truth remains that we seek to bring people closer to Christ and to rejoice in the Plan of Salvation, which was set forth since before the world was.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Kyle Remund
Missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints go out to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Missionaries teach and testify of Christ, of God, our Father in Heaven, and of the Restoration of Prophets and the full, unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Kyle Remund
Nope! We believe that every person is a child of God, and we also believe in serving others out of the goodness of our hearts. If you need help, ask a Mormon, because service isn't only something that we enjoy doing, it's part of our religion. Show more Show less
