Hi I'm Kaleb Earl

I grew up in North Ogden and later Stafford Virginia. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying engineering, and I just finished my freshman year. I am in the ROTC program and hope to be a engineer for the Air Force. I love hiking, backpacking, camping, hunting, fishing, sports, rock climbing and most of all mountain biking. I love anything outdoors. I played Lacrosse and wrestled in high school. I also love spending time with my family. Most of all I love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church because my parents were members. The Church has always been a part of my life. I didn't really know it was Christ's restored church until I read the Book of Mormon for myself when I was about 14. I came to know that Christ truly restored his Gospel on the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. I began to really believe and apply the teachings of the Gospel of Christ in my life and it truly changed me. I have learned so many amazing lessons, grown in ways I would have never thought possible, and found true happiness and peace. I know that I wouldn't be the person I am or have this amazing peace and happiness if it wasn't for the relationship I gained with Christ through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service. I know that God desires the best for all of his children, and that he wants them to be happy. I do what I can to be an instrument in Gods hands to make the world a better place. I am active in my church calling as a ward activity planner. I plan meaningful and fun activities for my ward/congregation that build unity and reach out to the community in service. I am preparing now in college to be a contributing member of society. I am preparing to serve in the Air Force because I love my country. Most of all, though, I am striving to keep the commandments of God and follow in the footsteps of Christ.
