Hi I'm Caleb

I'm a hunter, aviator, and a West Texas Mormon

About Me

Im a small town boy from West Texas. I love to hunt, fish, mud boggin, and flying. I grew up in a home learning strong personal values and self respect and for others. I like spending time with my buddies and sitting on the porch at sunsets. Im happy that I grew up where I did, and for who was and is in my life now.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't really know or live the LDS standards till a couple years ago. I lived about 40 miles away from the nearest LDS church, so I had the opprotunity to go to other religions with my buddies. Unfortunatly my parents haven't been active in a long time. But I never felt the way I did when I was around some of the youth leaders in the LDS church as with others. I became great friends with a missionary who talked me through alot of rough patches in life,and as well a youth leader, and an old bishop. So when I began to feel this way inside, I just wanted to know why? I pursued it till I felt some what at peace with myself and in the answers I got. I believe that God answered my prayers, and knew exactly what I was going through and needed in my life at that time. So I knew that it was right for me. I love the knowledge of Eternal Families, and the clear understanding that i've recieved through the Restored Gospel. I've always had questions, and no one else could answer them, but the TRUE Gospel could. So now I have a firm faith and testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - Day Saints. Im forever greatfull for this church and those who belong to it and live it by serving God's children.

How I live my faith

I've begun to live this Faith by serving a two year missionary service for this beloved church. Every day we go out searching to serve others and hopefully to share with them our knowledge of a Restored Church and Gospel. I live this Faith by striving to keep the covenants i've made with God to use all my time, talents, and effort laboring in this gospel to serve others. I learn something new everyday, and I know it's because God knows me and loves me personally and is directing me with his hand. Living the gospel is essential, and i've only begun to do so, and so has my family.This gospel blesses my family like no other. It's worked miracle after miracle for my family. I know I must do my very best everyday, so that one day I can have a pure heart before God that great day we meet again. I love this gospel, and hope that all will come and "follow" Christ.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

I believe that our purpose is in all things is to find peace and happiness,and to be with those you love. To continually to grow and learn and becoming what God would have you be, and by doing so helping your brothers and sisters do the same. Our purpose in a word definition i think would be "love".
