Hi I'm Caleb

I'm from Mesa, AZ. I'm number 6 of 7 kids in my family. I love baseball and snowboarding. And I'm a mormon.

About Me

There are 7 children in my family and I am the second youngest. I like being one of the younger ones in the family because I can learn from my siblings. I can get advice from them on how I should live my life and some of the choices I should make. They and my parents have been a big influence in my life. I grew up playing sports, hanging out with my friends, and loving life. I love baseball and snowboarding. During high school I worked at a doughnut shop, a bakery, and on my uncle's ranch in Wyoming. I got called to serve in the Florida, Tampa mission to invite others to come unto Christ and enjoy the blessings of living His gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon for many reasons. One of the things I like about being a mormon is the focus on strengthening families. I love my family and I love the idea of being with them forever. Another reason I am LDS is because everything makes sense in our church. God is a God of order and everything in the church is very organized. The Church that we have today is the same church that Jesus Christ established when He was here on the earth. The church has the answers to all the important questions in life like, "Where did I come from", "Why am I here", "Where am I going after I die", and "How do I live with Heavenly Father again?" Through the teaching of Jesus Christ, as explained in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, we can become closer as a family and have the joy that only the gospel can provide. We can enjoy the eternal peace and happiness that is available through living the doctrine of Christ. God loves all his children and wants us all to return to live with Him again. Through Jesus Christ and living his Gospel we can return to live with Him after this life.

How I live my faith

I live and show my faith by being a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am in Florida sharing what I know to be true and helping others gain greater faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ all day every day with everyone I can. We teach people about the church that Christ established when He was here and we teach them that we belong to that same church today. That we have the Priesthood Authority to act in God's name to bless the lives of those we come in contact with. We have the proper authority to teach and baptize, and bless the sick and afflicted. I love helping others and seeing the joy that the gospel brings to their lives.
