Hi I'm Caleb

I grew up in Utah. I enjoy swimming, learning, and working on family history. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the middle child of three sons. I love swimming, family history and being with my family. I also love the people of the pacific ocean especially those in the Marshall Islands and Kiribati.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I see the difference it makes in my life and the lives of those around me. I see the happiness that is brought by following the teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that He lives today and guides the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have prayed to find out for myself and been given a confirmation by the Holy Ghost that these things are true. I know Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God because I have sincerely read it and prayed to know the truth for myself. I love this church and I love the difference it has made in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to do as Christ would do in each situation. I try to reach out to those in need of help by helping them with their homework, pulling weeds, or whatever they need. I also volunteer as a family history consultant. This means I help people find out more about their ancestors and record their findings online.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No, but all are urged to prepare to serve a mission. Young men are taught that all who are able should prepare to serve a mission because it is a priesthood obligation. Meaning we value the priesthood held in the church and believe those who hold it are held to a higher standard, that of sharing the gospel and service. Young women are encouraged to serve missions but are not obligated as the young men are. We are also taught that every member is a missionary and should be prepared at all times to answer any questions that may be asked of us. Show more Show less
