Hi I'm Caleb

I grew up in Georgia. I'm a nurse. I love my kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an active, young thirty-something year old. I love my wife and four kids. I have a special place in my heart for my youngest daughter who has Down Syndrome. I love to fish and camp, and do anything outside. I am a Scoutmaster for a local troop. I still play soccer, and I coach my son's team. I play just about any sport that I can, from football to jiu jitsu to ping pong. I just graduated from nursing school. I still haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, so my knowledge and understanding of the gospel has come in stages. I have always enjoyed being a member of a church that is more like a family than a congregation. The gospel taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is focused on families. I am a Mormon because I love my family, and when I am with my family or my fellow church members, I can feel my Heavenly Father's love for me. I know my savior loves me, and I am shown that through His teachings. I am reminded of His love every week at church, every time I pray, and every moment I spend with my family. There is no place I would rather be than in a place where I am loved unconditionally, and that love is contagious. The gospel teaches that you and I can return to live with our Father in Heaven, and I know in my heart that this is true! That is why I will always be a follower of Christ (a Mormon).

How I live my faith

I work with the youth of our local church as the Scoutmaster of our boy scout troop. While being a boy scout leader can be very tiring and frustrating and difficult, it is so very rewarding to see these young boys grow into men. Scouts is a perfect fit for our church. It teaches these boys to be honest, responsible, and prepared to help others. My favorite part of scouting is watching the boys disconnect from their video games and their music and cell phones, and play and work with each other on campouts. They learn so much about themselves, and how to interact with other people their own age in an outdoor environment. They camp in all weather, and they cook food over a fire that they built.
