Hi I'm Calvin

I grew up in Kansas and went to BYU Provo. I love sports and family, but most importantly, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Provo, Utah and raised in Topeka, Kansas. I have a passion for sports. I love to watch anything and I played football, baseball, and was on the swim team. My favorite teams are the Packers and Oakland A's. My second passion is for music. I played trumpet in my high schools band for all 4 years. I'm attended school at BYU and am majoring in Exercise Science. After I complete my degree in Exercise Science I plan on going into dental school to become a general dentist.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family and continue to be very enthusiastic and involved in my faith. I enjoy going to church each Sunday. I would be nothing without my faith! It has helped shape my life and I really don't know where I would be without it. Being a part of this church helps me to have true happiness and joy every day by following my Savior and obeying His commandments and principles. I know that this church is true with all of my heart! I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and it has changed my life forever! It helps answer my questions of life and is the best book I have ever read. I have a strong testimony of the Atonement the Jesus Christ performed for each one of us. I know that through His atonement we can be forgiven of our sins, no matter what! I know that God loves us and knows us each by name. He cares for us and wants us to return to Him in the life hereafter. I know that He has a plan for each of us. I know that families can be together forever! I love this Church and it's principles and teachings. It has shaped me into the man I am today and is helping shape me into the man I am meant to become.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each and every day by trying to do the best I can to live a Christ-like life. I love studying the scriptures and applying what I learn from them and from what I have been taught in my church meetings. In the church, I served as a Sunday School teacher for my congregation at BYU. I love teaching and learning as I teach! It brings me so much joy to apply the principles that I've learned and to see the happiness that it brings by doing so!
