Hi I'm Kaleb Hill

I'm a Mississippi Country boy. I'm an Iraqi Veteran. I'm a husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a country boy. Plain and simple. I live in Mississippi and you can mostly find me outdoors hunting or fishing. I have been married to a beautiful woman for 3 years now and we don't have any children as of yet, but hope to start a family soon. I am in the Army and I am an Iraqi Freedom Veteran. I served a mission in the Washington Seattle Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I guess the main reason I'm a Mormon is because of my grandmother. She is a very spiritual person and opened the door to two missionaries one day. They wanted to share a message with her about how Christ's church that He organized while He was upon the earth has been restored and that there was a living prophet that receives revelation from God. The spirit touched her enough to hear their message and this is why I'm a Mormon today. My dad was around 16 when my grandmother was taught about the Mormon Religion through two young men that paid their way to come to Mississippi and do nothing but serve the Lord. He was inspired to be baptized and later to serve a mission himself. After 2 years he came home and married a Mormon girl that had been raised in the church. A few years later I was born. I was raised by a loving mother and father and witnessed first hand the powerful Gospel and it's effects on families. Around my 16th birthday I knew it was time for me to make a decision, one that would impact the rest of my life. I was to decide if I should continue being apart of the Mormon religion. I visited many different churches and experienced first hand what other religions taught. I took my thoughts to the Lord. I knelt down one evening and pour my heart out to my God and asked him if the Mormon religion was true. I asked if there was a true prophet on the earth that leads and guides us. I asked if the Book of Mormon was true. A warm peaceful feeling fell upon me that is very hard to explain. It was like a surge of electricity shot through my body but yet also like someone was pouring a warm glass of water over my head. It was a moment I shall never forget. I knew then at that very moment that this church was true. That God does love his children now just as he does in times of old, to give us a Prophet on the Earth to help us and guide us. I knew that this answer came from God. I cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I'm currently the 1st Counselor to the Branch President in our Branch. Once every three months I'm in charge of conducting Sacrament Meeting which includes finding people to speak on Sundays. I help the Branch President in any way possible and try to keep his load light. Anything he needs of me and asks of me I do.
