Hi I'm Kellon Sandall

I love math, science, the world we live in, and its creator. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I think one word that could describe me is happy. I like to call myself a "realistic optimist". I believe there's more good in the world waiting to happen than bad, yet I still keep myself grounded in the present life living second to second. I realize everything won't happen my way, but that's okay because God is charge of everything. He knows much more than me. I'm the oldest of a family of four. I love doing things with my family such as playing whiffleball in our backyard or playing gossip for family home evening. We have fun and laugh together. I also like riding bikes and hiking in the mountains of Utah. I like running up and down the streets of my town alone or with my friends. One of my favorite foods is chocolate, but I hate peanuts; I'm allergic. I like the colors light blue, green, and yellow. They remind me of a peaceful, quiet spring day. Spring is my favorite season. Everything comes to life in the spring. Life is one of the most complex things I can think of yet somehow I don't even realize how glorious it is until I take time to think about it. I'm actually quite an analytical, logical guy. I think mathematics is fun. Numbers seem to make sense to me. Computers and science fascinate me as well. I'm a curious guy. I want to learn how to world works from the atom to the universe.

Why I am a Mormon

I think the biggest reason I choose to be a Mormon is it just feels right. I've never had a big conversion story that has rocked my life. Recently, I was trying to figure out if I had a testimony. As I was reading the Book of Mormon, I came across a scripture in Alma that says, "...by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise." I realized that I had had a testimony all along. Christ didn't need to send a sign down to me or show me a vision because he knew that I already had a testimony. I'm not a Mormon because my parents are. I'm not a Mormon because it's easy for me. I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I will admit that it is hard, but I feel in the end it will all be worth it.

How I live my faith

I try to show how I live my faith through little actions every day. It makes me feel good to see people smiling at me, so I try to smile at people every time I see them. God wants us and our surroundings to be clean so I try to leave places better than I found them. I want future people to enjoy what I've enjoyed for years to come. If someone is sitting alone somewhere, I try to go be their friend. I know what it feels like to be alone in this life, so I try to help people not go through that experience. It's hard because I like to keep to myself mostly, but I'm working on it. I'm so grateful that the Atonement is there to help me take my weaknesses and make them strengths. A big way I live my faith is by going to my church every Sunday. Church is a refuge from the world for me. It's a place where I can go reconnect with my spiritual side and strengthen my mental foundations. I take the sacrament and remember Christ's atonement and all He has done for me. In my church, I was called to be a pianist for one of my classes. It's really pushed me to practice the piano and become better than I was. Another thing I've been called to be is a secretary in a youth group. I kept track of events that were coming up and reminded people when they're assigned to teach. Overall, as I've lived my faith, my faith has helped me grow into who I now am.
