Hi I'm Kaleb J. Rasmussen

I am from Pleasant Grove Utah. I teach MMA lessons. I love music, working, and hanging out with my family.

About Me

One of the biggest parts of my life is my family. I have four sisters and one brother. I am the oldest of my family so I always try to set a good example for them. The other biggest parts are my friends and my music. I love all sorts of music but mostly progressive rock. I teach MMA classes and so I feel justified in saying that I am also a huge nerd. I play Magic The Gathering and am obsessed with Lord of the Rings, Superman, and lots of other nerdy stuff. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church. Many people talk about the need to develop your own testimony even when your whole family is from the Church. I can remember many instances that my testimony that the Church is true has been strengthened. But, I can remember a specific time that I had been reading and studying the Book of Mormon and asking God if it was true. I remember kneeling down on the side of my bed, pondering the things that I had read, and asked God if it was true. I asked, "God, if this is really true, please tell me. Help me to know that Joseph Smith really was a prophet and that this is true." In that moment I felt really warm and as if the Lord Himself was giving me a hug. I don´t always feel something so powerful when I pray, but when I do pray the Spirit always testifies to me that this is the true Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is why I choose to serve the Lord. He has given me everything and I know He is there. Now I want to give Him the only thing He doesn´t have. My will, and my heart.

How I live my faith

Before I left on my mission I taught the youth in my ward. Including my brother and sister. I love the youth and I love children. They are the future of the Church so we need to make sure they really understand how to develop their testimonies and love for the Lord. I have always tried to reach out and help people. I sometimes feel like I can be a selfish person so I try to look for opportunities to serve.
