Hi I'm Lyle

I am an early morning semenary goer. i am a nebraska husker. I am an Actor and i am a mormon.

About Me

I am fourteen years old, I love to act and give monologues. that is just the way i am... i have always had a love for the arts and for some reason it has just clicked with me. speaking of the arts I also play two instruments, the piano and the Accordian. I take pride in my Accordian as it is not a very well known instrument anymore. I have a pretty normal schedule, I volunteer once a week at a local library in Broken Bow and have a good time doing it. I live in a family of thirteen (ask my mother how she does it! i dont know!!!) and we have all been homeschooled. She has taught us all to play at least one instrument because as a child she also was a very good musician and still is. I love my family, they have taught me so much and i am very grateful for them! another one of my encouraging forces was and still is my young men's president, i am very grateful for the help he has given me and my brothers.

Why I am a Mormon

i am a Mormon because i know that our church is true, i know that with this restored church and only with this restored church will i be able to get to heaven to live with my loving heavenly father. i grew up and still am, in this church, both of my parents were members and i know that without them i would not be where i am. i know that Joseph smith was a true prophet and that he restored this church. the first time I gained a true testimony was when i had the opportunity to go to a church camp called especially for youth, my group had a testimony meeting and that was the first time i could actually say the words and mean it. Before then i wanted to say it and believe but i never could, i am so happy and glad that i now can and i hope that whoever is reading this can gain it to. i have never felt so strong about anything more than the church i hope everyone can know that, i recommend searching the Book of Mormon, not only read about it but search it, ponder it, and pray about it.

How I live my faith

i hold the preisthood in the office of teacher and I am an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. before I was a teacher I was a Deacon and I was the Deacon's Quarum president. I also go to every Wednesday night activitys such as mutual and I also particapate in boy scouts of America. like I said my young men's president has been a big influence on my life. I am greatful for all he has done. my branch president has been a big help to some of the trials I have had in my life. many times I have had struggles in my life and the church and my callings have helped me alot. i am greatful for the church and all it has helped me with. church is welcome to all who want to seek the truth. I would recomend to all to search the book of mormon and to pray about teh truth. I have come to know that the church is true and i hope everyone can know that.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Lyle
We believe that the purpous of life is to come to earth and receive a body, that way we can be like our heavenly father. some people ask, why am i here, where am i going, and where did i come from? well it is simple really if you pray about it you will know for yourself. the topic i am going to focus on right now is: why am i here? well like i said it is to get bodies. to learn to choose between good and evil. gain experience. and to for a family and endure to the end.

What is faith?

Lyle
having faith is like believing things which are true. but without seeing it, just believing it. faith is more than a belief, it is hoping believing and knowing. Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Lyle
The church is actually called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints. But nonmembers have given us the nickname of mormons. the reason for this is because we believe in the book of Mormon. we have taken this name into our person because we do not think it is degrading or insultitive. however we would rather be called the church of jesus christ of latter day saints.
