Hi I'm Caleb

Raised in Utah. I'm terribly passionate about literature, history, music, and all other pursuits of knowledge. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some people are born old. I feel that I may be one of those people. While I am only 19 years of age, I often feel out of place with my peers. Not because I feel superior, or inferior, nor is it because I am insecure, but because my passions are far different. I thoroughly enjoy classical music, opera, jazz, and the blues. I enjoy reading and writing. Whether it be one of Tolstoy's master pieces, or one of Kipling's thought provoking poems, I often find myself reading pieces of literature which few others still read. There is in my opinion nothing as sweet as the taste of further knowledge, and for this reason I love to learn. Outside of intellectual pursuits, I am an avid mountain biker, a great runner, and can go toe to toe with anyone in the weight room provided they are of a similar size.

Why I am a Mormon

I have spent a great deal of time researching various religions and comparing them. I have spent a great deal of time studying the Mormon religion and trying to discover if it may be false. While there may be things that I do not know, and things to which I cannot seem to find answers, these things are little. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I believe that the Mormon church holds the greatest amount of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have in our church a doctrine called the plan of salvation. If you have not heard of it, please, I urge you to ask a Mormon about it. I believe in this doctrine with all my heart, mind, and soul to be true. It is so incredibly beautiful and brings me such great happiness that thinking it is not true brings me nothing but despair. I am Mormon because I have a testimony of this church. I am Mormon because no other thing in my life has ever offered happiness to such a degree.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what I believe to be right. While I do attend church every Sunday, and I do study my scriptures, I consider these to be the smallest part of living my faith. I am a believer in Christ, and because of this, I feel the only way to live is to be as much as I can be, Christ like. I tip the people who serve me everywhere I go, including McDonald's. If I see someone broken down on the side of the road, regardless of time constraints, I pull over to offer assistance. It is rarely required, but the few times I have been able to help I am extremely grateful for. If I see someone whether they be a friend, neighbor, co worker, or just a stranger, who seems to be grieving. I make sure to ask them if they need an help, or if they'd like to talk, or if I can do anything to cheer them up. I believe my day to day interactions to be the largest part of living my faith. I love people and I love to help people.
