Hi I'm Kaleb Rasmussen

From Salt Lake City, born and raised. U of Utah student. Missionary in Korea. Pianist. Board game-ist. Motorcyclist. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love how this Gospel can enhance every day moments. It transformed my life--and continues to do so. I attended college to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, but now I'm taking a break from my studies to go on a mission to Korea. When I come back, I hope to major in Economics! I understand the difficulties of growing up in the church. For me especially, learning how to define yourself without pushing the boundaries too far. Learning who we are is what I believe this life is for. So it's ok if we remake ourselves a couple times. I am a Mormon because life is hard--and this church makes it easier! I know this from trial and error (mostly error...). Though my parents taught me well, I needed to test it myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because life is hard, and if there was a solution to all problems, I believe this is it. The truths that I learn are not generalized and broad-casted to everyone. They are individualized and fitted to each and every one. God is my Father in Heaven, and He has a plan for me. Because I know that plan, I want to follow along and achieve it.

How I live my faith

Setting an example in the little things. Following the little voice inside my head. Relying on what I know to be true. Double checking my sources and my decisions. Losing myself in service when I can't take life.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Kaleb Rasmussen
A testimony is the understanding and knowledge we receive as a gift, as we act on our desire to come to Christ. They are usually simple statements of truth. (I.e. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ.) The best way to expand your testimony is to share it. Show more Show less
