Hi I'm Cali

I grew up in Utah where I got my B.S. in Wildlife and Wildlands Conservation and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom of a toddler, but I also enjoy volunteering in my community. I recently graduated from BYU with a degree in Wildlife and Wildlands Conservation. I enjoy outdoors activities, as well as interior design and cooking. I also enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures and customs. So far I have been to Mexico and South Africa. Both of which I had amazing experiences and made wonderful friends. I am a very caring person and love helping others whenever I get the chance.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS faith, but by my teenage years I began to really question wether this church was really true. I often saw my peers in my faith not always following what we had been taught and I wondered if this really was the right church and if God really did exist. I stopped going to church for a time and decided to attend other religious gatherings to explore what others believed. One day, I was going through a very difficult time in my life that brought me to my knees, pleading to know if God was there and what church is true. Through my sobs and tears, I felt my heart warm and a calming answer, "You already know it is true. I am here". From this experience and several others since then, my testimony of God has grown, my understanding of the scriptures has brought me closer to Him including the Book of Mormon. Being a Mormon has made me a better person, it has made my trials lighter, has strengthened my family, and developed my relationship with my Heavenly Father. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each and every day. I begin each day with a prayer and end each day with a prayer to my Heavenly Father. I also try to read materials of a spiritual nature each day that will bring the Spirit into my home. I attend church weekly as well as participate in the ward choir. My soul delights in singing and I often feel the Spirit as I listen to the words we sing. Another way I live my faith is through visiting other sisters in the ward to help strengthen them and their families. I try to be there for them, whether they need a friend or spiritual message, I do my best to care and strenghten them. I also have been blessed with the opportunity to work with our young women for camp this summer where I will have the opportunity to share my testimony and teach them essential outdoor skills.
