Hi I'm Caleigh

I'm from Utah. I've been called to serve as a missionary in Mexico. And yes! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Junior in college majoring in Chemistry. I am very into studying the hard sciences, and love to learn new things. I am always on my school's campus doing one activity or another. I guess you could say I am kind of a nerd! Recently, I decided to pause my educational pursuits for 18 months to make time to serve the Lord. I have been assigned to labor in the Mexico Tuxtla Gutiérrez Mission speaking Spanish and could not be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I love learning. I love understanding the why behind what I study. I love chemistry because it shows be how the world works around me on an atomic level. As such, I like to consider myself a scientist. I remember first coming into college fearing that choosing a science-related field would mean that I would have to choose either belief in my faith or in scientific fact. However the more I study chemistry, the more I have come to find myself agreeing with Moses 6:63, which reads, “All things are created and made to bear record of [Him]”. When posed with a question and am seeking an answer, my systematic and rational side leads me to employ the scientific method. One of the most central beliefs of the LDS church is that the Book of Mormon offers a promise to those seeking knowledge of the truth from God. It is found in Moroni 10:4, and is an applied version of the scientific method intended to help those who are investigating the gospel to gain a testimony of the book itself. However, in addition to that promise, the process that Moroni teaches here can be used in confirming all truth. Just like any good experiment, this truth is replicable by many witnesses. As I scientist, I greatly value the ability to receive answers on my own through my own personal study as well as through modern day prophets. No doubt, there are still numerous unanswered scientific questions that exist in this world. I do not claim to have any insight into the mysteries of God, but I do know of His light and His love. It exists in this gospel and it is in this testimony that I will leave my home, my family, and my friends. One of the things I admire about scientists is the way that many are so eager to publish their findings and share it with the world. How blessed we are because of their contributions. Similarly, as a Mormon I have found comfort and truth in this gospel and I am so eager to share what I have found with the others around me as I travel to Mexico.

How I live my faith

I never thought that I would be going on a mission at this point in my life, but my Heavenly Father had a different plan for me. Currently, I am living my faith by preparing to serve Him and His people.
