Hi I'm Caley

I'm an Interior Designer. I'm an Idahoan. I'm a blogger. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into an LDS family in Utah and moved to Idaho when I was young. I was raised in the church and was taught the gospel in my home. I met my husband in a seminary class in high school. While he was on his mission, I went to college. We got married when he came home and returned to school to finish our degrees. I have a bachelor's degree in interior design and I am currently working as an assistant designer in the Interior Design department of the LDS church.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born and raised in a Latter-day Saint home, I still had to find out for myself who I really was and who I really wanted to be. It wasn't until high school through my seminary classes that I realized my need to figure out who I was, especially for the future and going out on my own. I took the Book of Mormon challenge to read it and pray and ask my Heavenly Father if it was true. Before I even finished, I knew it was true. From that experience, my testimony grew and I learned that I was a daughter of God and that I had a purpose on this earth. Knowing that has made all the difference. I helps me chose right from wrong, set righteous goals, date and marry a righteous Priesthood holder, get married in the temple, and prepare, as a couple, for precious children from our Heavenly Father. That truth has given me confidence, charity, as well as an eternal perspective for life's trials.

How I live my faith

My husband and I have realized that it's the little things that make the difference. Taking a few minutes each day to read our scriptures, pray, and ponder, individually and as a couple, really keeps our minds focused on the important things in life. We recently moved to a new city and a new ward. We were called to be Sunday School teachers to the 17 & 18 year olds. It is a great, but tough calling for we know that it is this critical time in life where they are going out on their own and they must chose which path to follow. We hope they learn to lean on the gospel and the Spirit.
