Hi I'm John Calkins

I grew up in California. i love going to the beach and having fun.

About Me

I was born and raised in California. i love to laugh and make other people laugh. i love to cook food and eat the food i make. my favorite food is cookie dough. if i'm ever having a bad day, a nice spoonful of cookie dough can change my day faster then you can say the church is true. i am a bit of a comic book nerd. i love sports. i love going to football, basketball and baseball games. i swam, surfed and played water polo in high school. i would rather be able to walk on the sealing then be able to fly.(I know i'm weird.) i like to look at the lights of a city and imagine them flickering on and off like they are dancing to the music in my head. I am currently serving a mission in the Georgia Atlanta North Mission. after the mission i plan on going to school again. oh and i am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know it to be true. It is as simple as that. i love the church and the blessings that come with it. i have prayed to know for myself that these things are true. i know that Joseph Smith was called of God and that he translated the Book of Mormon. i know that we have a prophet living on the earth today and that he leads this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church on Sundays and participating as much as i can with other church activities. I try to spend as much time with my family. i am most happy when i am doing things, like going to church, with my family.
