Kyle & Amy Merkley

Kyle and Amy both grew up in homes with loving families who taught them the importance of agency and the strength of the Atonement in effecting good in their lives. They met in a Latin class at BYU, which set the foundation for their deliciously nerdy love affair. They married five years ago in the Provo Temple. Kyle is currently working through a grad program in classics at BYU, and Amy teaches Latin to junior high students in Payson and classical mythology to BYU students. In their day-to-day life, they both enjoy gastronomy, shopping, freshwater fish-keeping, playing Dungeons and Dragons with friends, and watching My Little Pony. Kyle experiences gender dysphoria, and it is only through the loving help of Amy and the Atonement of Jesus Christ that Kyle has begun to find peace in his experience.

Be sure to also read Kyle's essay "Jesus Wins: Finding Faith in Ambiguity" and
Amy's essay "An Unassuming Love: Nurturing a Happy Marriage with a Transgender Spouse".

Thank you for sharing and I know as long as you try which you will always need to do that you will both be blessed beyond measure. The Atonement is such a beautiful gift.

My friend shared this website with me, and I didn't know if it was gonna help, but I was having a really bad day, and I felt the Spirit prompt me to open up my laptop and go to this website. You guys are so inspirational and so loving to each other, and as a BYU student with bisexual feelings, it is so nice to not feel like I'm a weird abnormality. Thank you guys for your video! :)
