Hi I'm Caleb Satchwell

I was born and raised on the Wasatch Front in Northern Utah! I am a missionary, ski bum, I love the outdoors, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I absolutely loved playing in the band program at my high school. I've played the trumpet for about six years. I was a baritone in my community's barbershop chorus. I've always loved going on vacation with my family whether it be camping or anything over seas. I enjoy going snow skiing whenever I can. I thoroughly enjoy doing anything in the outdoors including, fishing, repelling, hiking, and boating. I've also played rec soccer for about five years and I ran track for about half a year. I enjoy playing any sport involving a ball. I enjoy eating almost any home-cooked meal and bonding with my older brother and younger sisters. I love my family and always will, now and forever. I am a brother, son, friend, trumpet player, baritone, skiing fanatic, full-time missionary and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I have felt Christ's love for me. I know that when I live the gospel in keeping the commandments, I am able to live a more happy life. I know that I can get through any trial whether it be small or large, because I know that God our eternal father in heaven is watching over every one of us. I have read the Book of Mormon and know now that it is true. The words written in this book are inspired words from our Heavenly Father. I know that if I will stay obedient to the commandments, that I will be worthy and able to feel the Holy Ghost in my life when I am lost or confused. I know that Thomas S. Monson is the true and living prophet today and that his words are also inspired. I also know that families are eternal through temple marriages. The gospel truly does bless families, in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Having been a missionary for the church, I have personally witnessed for myself the impact that the spirit can have on individuals. I have gained a personal testimony of the power the holy ghost can have on one's faith and conversion. I once had the opportunity to help organize and be part of my stake's(a stake is a group of ward's together) youth-lead Trek(a reenactment of the Mormon Pioneers crossing the plains in America to get to the Salt Lake Valley in Utah). This youth-lead Trek was amazing! I was assigned to be one of ten captains over the Trek participants, which ended up consisting of over 600 youth and adults. Having been a priest in my quorum, I have had the greatest opportunity to be a home teacher with my Dad as my companion. I have grown so much from home teaching three different families I was given in the past with my Dad. It has been a special experience for me to have home taught with my Dad as we have had some really great lessons and discussions.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Caleb Satchwell
President Thomas S. Monson is the true and living prophet in this day and age. I believe that President Monson, his counselors, and all the apostles are in fact called of God in our dispensation. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Caleb Satchwell
We pay 10% of our income to help provide money for missionaries, building more temples, building more church buildings, and also to help people in need all over the world who may have been impacted by natural disasters or other hardships. Christ suffered for all of our sins. I think that if Christ could do that for us, 10% of our income seems quite insignificant in comparison to his suffering for us. Show more Show less
