Hi I'm Caleb Summerhays

I am from CT, serving a full-time mission in the California Redlands Mission . I love magic, piano, film, and entertaining others.

About Me

I am serving a full-time mission in the California Redlands Mission. I attended BYU for about six months and loved it. I plan on going into the film industry. I love magic, playing the piano, singing, acting, dancing, making others laugh, movies, television, and animation. I am an Eagle Scout; I raised school supplies for children in Ethiopia. I would be nothing, though, without God and His church.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the gospel, but I have actively chosen to stay apart of it. I am serving a mission, and have been loving it. I have seen the gospel change so many lives. There is no way that it could change people in the magnitude it has if it wasn't true. I do not follow with blind faith. I pray for confirmation, and then act. I am a Mormon because having a knowledge of a life after death, eternal families, restoration of priesthood, and living prophets and apostles on the earth is the most comforting thing in the eternities. I know the church is true, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, as well as every prophet since him. The Book of Mormon is true, along with the other scriptures that supplement each other, such as the Bible and Doctrine and Covenants. This is Jesus Christ's one and only true church. And I love it.

How I live my faith

I actively interact with others in my church. I once helped plan dances for neighboring wards, and then was a "Ward Wrap-Up" coordinator, a BYU specific calling. I am now serving a full-time, 2 year mission in the California Redlands mission. I pray, read my scriptures daily, and serve others. I go to church every week, and try to help others' faith grow in Jesus Christ.
