Hi I'm Chad Callister

I'm from Utah. I'm in Ohio. I'm a Mormon :)

About Me

First and foremost my family is most important to me :) They are awesome. I am the youngest of 5 kids and have 2 loving parents. I love music and playing in a band is the best. I was involved in National Youth Leadership Training for 6 years. I was in my high school's marching band for 3 years, I played trumpet for 2 of those years and the sousaphone my last year that's how I learned to play tuba. I'm on a mission right now in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is awesome!

Why I am a Mormon

So while I was raised in the church I had to find my own witness from the Holy Spirit that this was right and true. The first experience I had with a strong spiritual inspiration was when I was 16 and I wondered "what is my purpose in life?" "Is life really just going throughout the day, for my entire life?" My parents had done what they should and taught me the gospel in my home with my family so I knew what is taught about God's plan for us. I thought on those questions for a couple of weeks and the Spirit let me know that I was a part of God's plan, that life is the happiest when I follow Christ. I am imperfect, but I am doing my best to follow my Savior, and right now that means that I am to serve Him for 2 years full time in Ohio.

How I live my faith

Right now I am on a mission preaching the gospel in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission. I am doing my best to do what I know to do, like reading my scriptures and praying everyday. As I serve the Lord through serving my fellow men, and doing the things that are hard, I have come closer to Him.
