Hi I'm Calin

I was born in Utah, raised in Louisiana, spent my teen years in Mississippi, I like to adventure and imagine big and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spent much of my early life in Gonzales, Louisiana the jambalaya capital of the world. I love Cajun food and I love the Cajun people. I enjoy reading, writing, drawing, playing most sports, hiking, kayaking, and playing Dungeons and Dragons.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As I got older I found that my connection to the Church was growing thinner until it reached a point where I needed to decide for myself if it was the path I needed to follow. I prayed to know if it was truely right way for me to go and the answer I recieved from God was a definate yes. In later years I struggled once again and God told me that I needed to serve a mission. As I have served the Lord and strived to walk in his footsteps I have found that my love for him, my fellow man, and myself has grown beyond all expections that I had. God is real. Christ really came and he prepared the way so that we may return to live again with our Father in Heaven. The Bible and Book of Mormon are truely God's word given unto men. Thomas S. Monsen is a prophet of God that is called to turn our hearts and our minds to God and our savior Jesus Christ. I love you all and I hope that you all feel the love that Christ has for you.

How I live my faith

I love to show my devotion to my Savior by following his example of serving others. I feel personally that the best way to show love for another is by helping them. It does not matter who is in need of aid for the Lord has commanded that we serve all men and that is what I try to do. I love to get out and meet people and just be their friend and if I can help them find what joy I have found in my life through following Jesus Christ all the better.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Of course not. As Mormons we are also Christians which means we should follow the example of our savior Jesus Christ. One of the many things that Christ did was serve others many of which were not Jews. Our Savior had love for all mankind and so to as followers of him we should do all we can to show that same love for all people not just those of our faith. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Mormons should dedicate their lives to being like our Savior Jesus Christ. They try to follow his example and his teachings. They still have fun like other people do but they do in a way that would be in line with the commandments given by God. Show more Show less
