Hi I'm Caleb Christopher Allred

I'm currently studying International Relations. I am a choreographer and music is my passion. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ever since I was little, music has been a huge part of my life. I started playing the french horn when I was is 5th grade. As the years passed, I have come to learn other instruments and and also to sing and act on live stages. Performing is one of my biggest passions because I love being able to express myself to people in a way words cannot. I also love being able to inspire others to also participate in the fine arts and feel the same joy I do. I also love being active in any kind of sport. I love working out and spending quality time with the people I care about.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a personal witness that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's true church on the earth. As a child in the Church, I always trusted my parents's testimony of the Lord and of His church, yet as I grew to my teenage years, I realized I did not have my own witness and testimony that my parents had. I didn't know for sure that God existed or if all my parents taught me was true. I had to find out on my own. My parents taught me that if I wanted to know if God exisited and if everything that they had taught me was true, then I would have to read the scriptures and pray and ask God to receive my own answer from Him. They encouraged me daily as they, in their own experiences, had done the same to receive their own answers. As I continued to read, apply the teachings from the scriptures in my life, and talk to God in prayer, I felt that I had drawn nearer to Him and felt His love for me. I knew that God existed and realized more and more that the Lord was answering my questions personally by the power of the Holy Ghost. I, through my sincere desire to know and my faith in action, came to realize for myself that all that my parents had taught was true. Through the power of the Holy Ghost all, like myself, can come to know that this church is true and that it is the Lord's kingdom here upon the earth. I know that God and Jesus Christ live and love us unconditionally and want the best for us. I know that they love you and they want all to know for themselves that this church is true. I testify that if you truly desire to know if this church is true or if the scriptures are true or even if God exsists, I know you can know for yourself. Apply the divine principles of the Gospel found in the scriputes and seek to gain a personal relationship and daily conversation with your Heavenly Father through prayer. Your life will be blessed eternally and you will come to know of the great love that your Father has for you.

How I live my faith

I have the coolest calling in the the Church! I am a ward missionary! I honestly love my calling so much because I love getting to know new people that come to church for the first time. As a ward missionary, I get to see how the Gospel deeply changes the lives of new visitors of the Church and how much joy they experience as they accpet the Savior Jesus Christ in their lives. Missionary work brings me the greatest joy and it is my overall greatest passion. Sometimes I get to help the other ward missionaries plan a ward party to get to know new members and recent visitors to the Church.
