Hi I'm Kyle

I'm a husband, a student and a son of God

About Me

I am a student majoring in economics at Brigham Young University. I currently serve as a ward missionary in my ward. I was sealed to my beautiful wife for time and all eternity in the Manti, Utah Temple. I enjoy learning about government and its proper role in our lives. Although I follow current elections, I very much frown upon the dirty politics that we see so much of today. I feel very lucky to live in one of the most beautiful states in the U.S. (Utah) and I enjoy getting out into the mountains and forests that are so close by. I love the Lord and His gospel and am very grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a testimony through the promptings of the Holy Ghost that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer, that the Book of Mormon is a true testimony of Him and helps me to learn and become more like him. I am a Mormon because Jesus Christ restored his church through the prophet Joseph Smith. I am a Mormon because it brings happiness into my life and my home.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to remember the Savior throughout each day and try to do as he would do. I attend church services each week and study the words of the living and ancient prophets. I strive to finish each day a little closer to the Savior than I was when I woke up.

Why did your church previously practice plural marriage (polygamy)?

Sometimes the Lord comands his people to practice plural marriage because he wants to "raise up seed unto him." The leaders of the church didn´t want to have more than one wife, but the Lord comanded it, and when the Lord comands, we must obey. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

The church doesn't have paid clergy because that is how the Lord commanded it be done. The Lord understands incentives and knows that some people would be more diligent in building his kingdom if they received financial compensation for their work. The Lord is testing us. He promises us compensation in the celestial kingdom if we faithfully serve him and do everything we can while in this life to build the kingdom and invite our fellow man to come unto Him and be perfected in Him.
