Hi I'm Calvin

I'm an Athlete. I'm a Nerd. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have been called to serve in Brazil for the next two years, preaching the gospel and inviting others to come unto Christ in Portuguese. I love the gospel and how it can help everyone with their problems, no matter what problems they are or what stage of life they are in. I love working out and keeping my body physically fit, and have made it a goal in my life to keep myself so. I was born in Utah and moved to Colorado when I was 3, where I've lived since then. I am the second oldest of seven children in my family, I have one older sister, two younger brothers, and three younger sisters. We have a yellow lab, who has been pretty lonely since we had to put my other dog down about 3 years ago, but we show her plenty of love so she's been doing better.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by two parents who love the gospel very much, and for a long time I took their word for it that the gospel was true. When I was about 15, however, I started wondering if I thought the church was true. I read and pondered the scriptures, along with praying to my Heavenly Father. The answers provided to me from those actions convinced me of the truthfulness of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, I live my faith all day everyday, serving others and acting as the representative of the Lord that I am. I share the message of the restored gospel to those who are looking for answers to life's questions and also that are searching for peace. When I see a person who is having a hard time, I talk to them to see what's going on, and try to help them with whatever they need. I enjoy sharing the gospel with non-members, and I'm glad when I can help them understand it better, even if it's only a little more than they did before. I read my scriptures everyday, and do my best to live the teachings that I learn from the scriptures.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons help everyone. We believe that since God loves everyone, we should too. One of the best ways to show this love is by serving other people, whether they are Mormons or not. Show more Show less
