Hi I'm Caleb

I grew up in Utah. I am an engineer at heart and love to learn about how and why God's creations work. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some of my hobbies are wakeboarding, playing guitar, singing, basketball, bowling, hiking, biking, and backpacking to name a few. I am interested in almost anything scientific, especially chemistry, physics, biology, and nanotechnology. I enjoy learning how things behave on this small scale and want to contribute to society from an engineering standpoint. I was blessed to be able to graduate from high school a year before I usually would have. While in high school I had the opportunity to earn college credit and by the time I graduated was very close to getting my Associates Degree from Utah Valley University. After high school I was accepted to Brigham Young University and decided to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering. I was able to get almost half way through the program before I turned 19 and left on an LDS mission to Chesapeake, Virginia, which is where I am now. After my mission I plan on returning to BYU to finish my Bachelor's Degree, get married, and seek out work to provide for a family. I feel like there is so much to learn about the world we live in and many ways that we can improve what we already have. I look forward to opportunities to contribute in the best way that I can to make this world a happier, healthier, and more enjoyable place.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found strength and eternal worth in relying on my Savior. I have received many witnesses that this gospel is true and I have a firm belief that through the merits of my Redeemer I can experience joy and happiness in this life and eternal salvation in the life to come. I testify that there can be no greater joy than coming to know your Savior. As you come unto Him and learn of His gospel you will be blessed w/ a peace and happiness that you have never before known. I invite you and all men, women, and children everywhere to come unto Him by learning of His restored gospel which is on the earth again today and experience the same peace and happiness that I have!

How I live my faith

Right now the #1 way that I live my faith is by serving a full-time mission. As a missionary, I have the opportunity to dedicate 100% of my time for 2 years to performing the Lord's work and sharing the blessings of Jesus Christ's Restored Gospel w/ those that are willing to listen. I have the privilege to act as a representative of Christ in teaching truth and inviting all to come unto Him by accepting His restored gospel and following His example. I testify that there is nothing greater to behold or be a part of than the bringing of another to a knowledge of their eternal potential made possible through Christ. I testify that He is our Savior, that He loves each and every one of us no matter what we've done, and that His church (The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) has been restored to the earth with divine authority. I promise that YOU CAN KNOW THIS TOO if you will open your heart, read the Book of Mormon, and ask God in the name of Jesus Christ if it is true.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Caleb
As a missionary, my reason for proselyting is that I have something that has blessed my life immensly and I want to share it with others. The restored gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace to those in chaos and happiness to those that are in distress. I have felt the power and strength that comes from letting this gospel change me and I desire help others have the same experience. That is the reason why missionaries and Mormon's in general do all that they can to teach others what they believe. We feel that everyone deserves to experience that lasting peace and happiness for themselves and we know that it can only come through living correct principles. Show more Show less
