Hi I'm Kyle

I'm a law school student with a wife and 5-month old daughter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of seven kids. The oldest of which has Downs Syndrome. This has been both a great trial and one of the biggest blessings in my life. It was really hard for me to have a good relationship with him when I was growing up, but now he is one of the best friends that anyone could ask for. He ALWAYS wants to see you and talk to you on the phone, and he'll be anyone's friend as long as you treat him nicely. I grew up playing and watching any sport that I could. I played basketball, football, and tennis in middle and high school. Played baseball in little league for a while. I love playing all the sports I can, but I also know that great blessings come from keeping the Sabbath Day holy. I was on an AAU basketball team for one summer. After the first practice our coach brought us in and asked if anyone had a problem practicing on Sundays. I looked around hoping that someone else would raise their hand too, but I was the only one. However, he had the respect for me to not hold any practices on Sunday. It felt good keeping God's commandments. Now I'm a father, husband, and law school student. I married my wife a year and a half ago, and my daughter was born about 5 months ago. My days consist of waking up at 6:45, going to school. Usually get home at 4:30. Then I just spend the evening trying to relax with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of this church my whole life, and I know that it is where I need to be. I know that God loves me. I've found that out, and realize it over and over again as he keeps on helping me and forgiving me. I'm not perfect, but as I have followed God's commandments in the scriptures and those from living prophets, I feel better about myself, and I feel God's influence in my life. I prayed about God coming to Joseph Smith. I know that it happened. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, both because I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and I have followed it's teachings in my life. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. You can feel God's love for you just by reading it.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week, pray everyday both personally, and with my wife. I read my scriptures everyday personally and with my wife as well. I'm also a family history consultant in my ward. I've found that it's really fun to find out who your ancestors are, and although I'm no expert at it, I can help others as well.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The easiest way to know our Father in Heaven is to talk to him. I know it's not always easy o know if he's talking back to you, but I know that he does. I know that if you ask him a question, you'll get the answer from him, whether by a feeling he gives you, or from another person. Show more Show less
