Hi I'm Kaleb

I'm a musician. I'm a character and a fan of delicious flavors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up in Utah my whole life, and I've been blessed with having the privileged of being raised by wonderful parents. I'm currently serving as a full-time missionary for the church in the Great Kentucky Louisville Mission (GKLM), and am loving every minute of it. Before coming out on a mission I graduated from an early college high school and spent most of my time before entering the mission working construction. I specifically worked mostly in drywall. When I was hang or taping sheet rock, I thoroughly enjoyed going out with friends to movies, concerts, driving to McDonalds at 2 a.m. for Spicy McChickens, or whatever we could find to keep us busy. Upon returning from my mission I hope to get married and, get back into school and go into a career of teaching. What I want to teach, I have yet to figure out.

Why I am a Mormon

Having the Gospel in my life is the greatest gift God has given me. I have yet to find anything in this world that brings greater peace, provides greater purpose for life, or that has taught me more about myself, about my relationship with Christ, and the world around me. I was brought up in the church, and was raised by the best parents on the planet. That's not to say that my parents and my family are perfect, far from it in fact, but my family and I have come up out of affliction and trial. I was taught at a very early age correct and true principles, but this was something I still needed to know for myself. I could not use my parents, church leaders, or those around me as crutches. I knew my testimony had to be my own. And as I've lived the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and more so as I share these things with others, there is a feeling and light that comes into my heart that surpasses my understanding. It hasn't been easy at all, but it's the knowledge that I've come to about my Heavenly Father's plan for me, and that He's provided a way through His Son Jesus Christ, that makes it all possible. It gives me great hope. Being a Mormon has giving me an understanding that life is about progression. It's helped me realize that life isn't so much about what happens to you, but rather how you respond and react to it. I've gained a strong testimony in what I know to be true, and it's exciting for me to realize that as I continue to do things that will fill my life with light, that knowledge and conviction will grow and deepen.

How I live my faith

The most pinnacle way in which I've lived my faith was making the decision to serve a full-time mission. Serving as full-time missionary was a tremendous sacrifice for me and others. I didn't pick to come to Kentucky, but rather the Lord did, and I full-heartedly accepted this call to serve. It was a chance give two years of my life, on my own dime, as well as help from family and loved ones to share with others the blessing of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Of course two years in the grand picture of life, isn't all that much, but for a 19 year old young man it first felt like an eon. I'm now in the latter part of my mission service, and I'm still trying to figure where the time went. I can't imagine where I would be in life had I not taken this opportunity to serve others, and invite other to "come and see". Before coming out on my mission I had the blessing of teaching a Sunday school class composed of 6 to 7 year old kids. Teaching these children was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Like I mentioned before, teaching is passion and a talent I hope to magnify as strive to keep the faith.
