Hi I'm Caleb

I have lived in California my whole life. I am the middle child of five and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I will be going to college, but first I decided to serve my mission. I am super excited to go out and serve the Lord and other people by teaching the Gospel. I love hanging with friends even though I am a quieter kid. My family enjoys camping a lot and we also do many hikes. I have hiked Mount Whitney twice. I am an Eagle Scout. I am a volunteer referee for AYSO. I like to play all sports, but only played volleyball in high school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. People are scared about all the rules which are really suggestions that only help your life. When I stick to these rules I am not only happier, but also a better person for others around me. I have a firm testimony of Jesus Christ and that he truly did die for us so that we can one day return to our loving Heavenly Father. Christ's atoning sacrifice allows me to repent for my mistakes because everybody makes mistakes. I know that Joseph Smith restored the true church to this earth. I know that I can live with my family forever even after death. I am grateful for the support that you receive in this Gospel and that I have the agency to choose my own way. The comfort of this Gospel helps me everyday and I would be lost and confused without it. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday for at least three hours. I have the privilege of blessing the sacrament frequently. In high school I would wake up early in the morning to go to seminary before going to school. I never deny being a Mormon and embrace the chance to share information about our church. I am about to serve a mission for two years and have the opportunity to learn a new language for this.
