Hi I'm Kalob

I'm a cowboy, I love to snowmobile, I love Cummins everything and John Deere, I love the outdoors. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am excellent at underwater basket weaving. I am so bright that my own mother called me son! When I was two years old, I had already read and memorized the dictionary. By the age of five I had already graduated elementary and was on my way to graduating high school. When I was eight, I did graduate high school. They just decided to hold me back because I was so young. When I was ten, I became the best bareback rider in the National Finals Rodeo. Now, if you'll believe that, I've got some ocean front property in Arizona! Like I said before, I am a cowboy. I work with cows, horses, etc. I also work with tractors and machinery, pretty much anything and everything on the ranch I do except for the finances. I try my best to work as hard as I can each day and to also get as much done as possible. I am not really one for just sitting around doing nothing, it kinda drives me nuts. I have to always be working on or with something, otherwise I just get really bored, really fast. I really love the outdoors and especially snowmobiling or snowboarding. One day I may just be in the Winter X Games but I haven't really decided yet. I really want to get into some rodeo's as well, which I know for sure I will do. I love my horse! I really love Dodge Cummins trucks because they are the best. I have attended two full semesters of college at BYU-Idaho and I really enjoyed that except for the part of being in a city. I got my mission call to Detroit, Michigan and am currently serving there.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because that is the way to be. I mean sure, every faith has good and bad people in them that can effect the way people look at them. But when it comes down to it, other faiths have a lot of good in them, they just don't have the whole truth. We have a living prophet today that speaks to us and guides us. We have living apostles and other general authorities. It is just like it was back when Jesus Christ was on the earth and how He had assembled His church back then. But since the dark ages or when the gospel was removed from the earth, people think that everything died with the apostles and that we can never get it back. Well I'm here to tell you that we already have. Through the prophet Joseph Smith, we were able to regain that light. Through the Book of Mormon, we have another set of scriptures that add to the existing bible. It is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It is a record of the people that inhabited the America's before Columbus found the new world. It goes to show that God really does know each of us and does not forget anyone. And by knowing that, we also know that we have a Father in Heaven that really does love us and care for us and wants us to return to Him so we can become like Him. I really do love this church because it is honestly the only true church on the earth. It is only through this church that we can return to our Father in Heaven. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live the commandments of the Lord to the best of my ability. I try to have daily prayer and scripture study. I have had a few callings in the church in which I did my best with what I knew about things at the time. Looking back now, I know there was a lot more that I could've done, but you live and you learn I guess. I had some callings when I was at college as well. But right now, my greatest calling is that of being a missionary. That one there will be the biggest trial of faith and how much I have in me to be able to stand up to the trials and everything that will be coming my way and have already come my way. I have gone home teaching with my Dad ever since I turned twelve. We haven't ever gotten 100% but hey, no one is perfect. Besides, some of the families we were supposed to teach didn't really want anything to do with the church, so we respected their wishes and backed off. But anyways, that's about it for now.
