Hi I'm Calvin_Hill

I was born and raised in Utah. I am an Eagle Scout and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of my five siblings. I love drafting and plan on becoming a engineering design technician. I plan on going to college to further my education. I have overcome many medical challenges to accomplish what I have. Many doctors told me I would not live, walk, graduate High School, drive or live away from home. I graduated High School with Honors. I walk, run and drive. I will live away from home for 2 years.I am here for a reason and I plan to do everything I set my mind too.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that in addition to being sent to this earth in order to learn,grow and be tested (in the ways of the gospel) we were also sent here to help the lives of others as well. I choose to fulfill this purpose by being a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I believe that through divine revelation Joseph Smith was given the truth of this purpose and gospel. I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ as he taught it on this earth was confused and changed after his death. I know that the restoration of this truth allows me to have a sense of purpose and a direction back to my Heavenly Father and an Eternal life with those I love.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by believing that I have a divine purpose to be here upon the earth today. I know that the challenges I have faced and overcome are so that others can benefit from the medical knowledge Doctors get from taking care of me. I live my faith be following the commandments and serving others most recently through earning my Eagle Scout award and building a wood pile cover for a campground. I have done yard work and hauled hay with the youth. I have served others in need every chance I see. We are here to learn and grow. Serving others shows my belief in them as children of our Heavenly Father.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

I know that the prophet of our Church is chosen by Heavenly Father. Each prophet has been an inspiration to his generation. By the line of succession ( the Senior Apostle becomes Prophet) and the fact that Leaders in the church are called by God. Each Prophet has been chosen years before and allowed to learn and grow into his calling as Prophet. Show more Show less
