Hi I'm Caleb

I was born and raised in San Diego. I'm a student and aspiring engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying under a Pre-Mechanical Engineering Major. I love building new projects and coming up with innovative ideas. I enjoy camping, hiking, rock climbing, and wake boarding. Sports and athletics are also huge part of my life; I love playing hockey, soccer, volleyball, football, and basketball. I am currently serving a 2 year mission. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share the Gospel to other sons and daughters of God. It is one of the greatest opportunities I have been blessed to have so far.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is truly Christ's church on the Earth today. I know this and seek to come closer to my Heavenly Father and Christ by living his restored gospel. I am a Mormon because the principles and beliefs supported by the Mormon faith are true and living examples of how Christ would have me live. I love being a Mormon because living my faith makes me the best person I can be.

How I live my faith

As a member of a young single adult congregation at college, I have been given the assignment to watch over and lead a group of men in works of service, instruction, and unification. It is my great opportunity to get to know those whom I serve as well as those whom I serve with. As I learn to love others and fulfill my responsibilities with faith and hope, I come closer to Christ and my Heavenly Father.

What is the priesthood?

The Priesthood is authority given to man by God, through which we are able to do His will. Those holding the Priesthood in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints hold the same priesthood that was on the Earth in the time of Jesus and His apostles. Through obedience to the Lord´s commandments and by faith in Jesus Christ, miracles can happen through Priesthood power. Ordinances such as baptism are carried out by righteous Priesthood holders who have the power and authority given from God. Show more Show less
