    When we meet people we never know their story until it is shared.  Thanks for sharing Caleb.  I believe that God has already used you in many ways, some you may never know, others God may bring to light.  The best is yet to come!!!

    No matter what is happening in this life, you need to have your eyes fixed on Jesus and His love showed on Calvary, this will give you assurance that He didn’t want it to happen, He created a complex world with free agents (human and angelic) and by giving free will He risked that there will be evil stuff happening. If bad things happen to you, pray and know He will work with that evil to bring something good out of it  :) If I may suggest to you and others (Heidi) who maybe struggles with how God can evil things to happen, read the book “Is God To Blame?” by Gregory A. Boyd, it helped be to look at God from a different perspective, and I don’t ask God “Why?” anymore, I just pray and have faith that He will do something good out of it ! I will keep you in my prayers dude! Spread the Kingdom! :))

    CALEB, JUST WATCHED YOUR CLIP.  WOW!! WHAT A TESTIMONY THAT HUNDREDS WILL SEE AND WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY TO WITNESS TO THE WORLD OF GOD’S MERCY AND GRACE.  CALEB, YOU JUST KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING.  PRAYING AND TRUSTING IN GOD AND PUSH THROUGH  IT.   YOU WILL COME OUT A WINNER.  WE CAN NEVER GO WRONG BY PRAYING AND TRUSTING GOD.   YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU WILL HELP BY STANDING FIRM AND LETTING THEM KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH AND THAT YOU, EVEN THOUGH YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND ALL THAT HAS HAPPENED,  YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE DEFEATED IN YOUR FAITH AND BELIEF IN GOD.   YOUR TESTIMONY HERE, EVEN THOUGH I KNOW YOUR STORY AND HAVE HEARD YOUR MOM AND DAD SPEAK, BLESSED ME AND BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES, BUT JOY TO MY HEART.   YOU HANG IN THERE, SON.  ONE DAY IT WILL ALL MAKE SENSE.     BLESSINGS TO YOU

  • Ethan

    I really appreciate you telling this story Caleb. I’m going through a tough situation right now and it may not be the same magnitude, but it’s been hard. I’ve been dealing with a sense of confusion, discouragement, and hopelessness because I don’t know if this is of God and I don’t know what He’s doing. You have an entire community of people wanting to pray for you and help you out. I’m praying for you brother and God Bless.

  • Carls

    Caleb! You are such an amazing blessing, and I absolutely know that you are going to reach people. God is going to work wonders through you. Plus you’re freaking cool, you’re the coolest guy I know! :)

    Wow man….just wow……Caleb…bro, thank you for sharing this story……you are a blessing and an inspiration….thank you so much.  You are correct in saying that God will ultimately use this story for good.  I’d love to share this with my church and my college students if you’d let me?  I’d also love to chat and find out more of your story so I could use it on one of our sermons.  You, of all people, have the right to ask, “why do bad things happen to good people?” and here you are standing firm.  Feel free to contact me bro….I’d love to hear from you……

  • Rebecca

    Caleb, Your family has meant the world to me and mine. I attend the furneral of your siblings and as hard as it was for me to sit through, I can’t imagine what it was for your dad and Cameron sitting at Riverview and at the time knowing that you and Sara and your mom were still in Michigan. You have been an inspiration to so many people all ready, more than you will ever know. I am sure you will not know the depths you have touched until you reach Heaven. God has amazing and utterly mind blowing plans for you and your family. You have taught so much in just this short clip…ALWAYS say “I love you”, because you are right…you just never know. Just keep your heart dwelling on Him and sit back and enjoy the ride He has built for your life. You are an amazing young man, don’t ever forget that!

  • Donnab

    A wonderful testimony. God is using you for the Good. Your testimony I am sure will be an inspiration to many people. Your entire family has gone thur a lot. I have heard your parents and grandparents talk about this event. I also remember when you all were amall and attended Riveerview. God will truly bless you.

  • Beth

    Yours is an amazing testimony! God will continue to work in your life and he will bless you for sharing this story and encouraging other to seek HIM! Thank you!

  • Samara Rae

    Don’t ever give up, Caleb. You have inspired so many through this tragedy, my family and I included. We’ve been praying for you for so many years. This will all make sense someday, I promise. We all love you and your family.

  • MitchReed

    Caleb, It takes one heck of a MAN to share your story like you did.  You are an inspiration to young people dealing with tragedy in their lives.  The rock you have been built on has overcome the doubts and hopelessness.  Thank You for providing some perspective 

  • Sjournell

    Thank you Caleb for sharing your heart with us.  You and your family have dealt with an unbelievable loss–and you have demonstrated such courage and strength.  I am so proud that you are willing to share your pain and frailty to others who are hurting in similar ways.  May you continue to grow in your faith–and as you daily become stronger may you go forth to do great and mighty things for our Loving Father.  May we all “see the Light” at the end of the tunnel as you have.  God Bless you and your precious family. Love in Christ– Susie 

  • Doris Mustard

    Caleb, God has already touched many lives through the faithful testimonies of your family. He will complete the work He has begun in you, and as your mom has reminded us many times, “His ways are perfect”. He alone alone knows the completed picture. Our prayers continue as we see the amazing ways He is working. May He bless the path He lays out for you!

  • Dillon Mayhew

    Caleb, thank  you for sharing your story. You are in inspiration to me and I’m sure to many others. God is using it for good. You are like Job in the bible. Through your difficulty you questioned God but you have been brought back to Him and understand that we don’t know the answers to all of life’s problems, but we do know the One who holds the answers. One day you will be able to ask Him directly, why? On that day, my guess is  you will see dozens, if not hundreds of folks that came to Christ because of the realism in your testimony. Resist the enemy, God is good, all the time. In every situation, God is good. God bless you Caleb!

  • Craig Whittaker

    Purpose…in every breath we draw and even when the breathing stops…GOD has purpose that we cannot comprehend or even imagine.  You, Caleb, my brother in Christ, are already displaying a brilliant light through this darkness!! To paraphrase part of Esther 4:14 “and who knows but that you have come to this place for such a time as this”…Bless you brother as you continue to seek and serve. You truly inspire! 

  • Greta Wininger

    Caleb, it has been amazing having you as a part of my life over the years. I’m so glad that You are able to see that God is going to use you through this. You have come such a long way and I know God is going to do amazing things with your life. Seeing you then, and seeing you now is like a night and day difference! You truly are a wonderful person, with a huge heart. I love you and your family, and I am always here whenever you need me.

  • Bradley M

    Caleb,
    You have been an awesome friend over the years.  Thanks for everything you have done and I’m so glad to see this. I know God will use you as He already has through your music and other outlets.  You are an awesome man of God and I strive to be there one day.  You’re a blessing, inspiration, friend and brother to me.  Keep up the good work, Semper Fi.

    This is an amazing testimony Caleb! I cannot sit here and tell you that I know how it feels because I do not know. But I do know that your story has touched the lives of so many people and that your family continues to do so many wonderful things. Thank you so much for sharing this! May God continue to bring yall peace!!!

  • Ivan

    It is amazing what soul-shaking stories there are sometimes behind absolutely intact facades of people.. Let your testimony be a signal to all of us to CARE and want to SEE behind those facades.
    You are a rock, Caleb. God bless you and your family, who are themselves such a blessing to other people.

  • Chelsea Lanae

    Truely beautiful and inspiring… Thank you <3

  • Christen Poe, Narrows VA

    Caleb, The strength, faith, and determination you and your family have shown leaves me speechless. Your comment is so true how most don’t know what to say, I know I didn’t.
    Pain in any form at high levels will open the door for depression. But for you to turn it around,
    open your heart again to God, and use your unbelievable story to inspire others is beyond measure. Like you said; Pray, Push, and Claim your light, and claim your light you will Caleb.

  • Dug Hampton

    I love me some Caleb!  Stay dependent on God bro’, He will always show up.  Grace is bigger than the moment..
    God bless

  • RD

    Caleb, thank you for sharing.  We lived in Pearisburg at the time of this tragedy.  We did not know your family, but we were homeschoolers as well, and knew some of your families friends.  We were so sad about this.  Your family was an inspiration to us at that time.  just found this today, and i will definately share with  my husband when he gets home from work.  Still think about your family,even though we never got to meet you.

  • Zach

    This is truly beautiful, as well as heart breaking, I to have felt blessed and saved by music, you’re so incredibly strong, never give up! Also, does anyone know the song at the beginning of the video and throughout it? God bless! <3

    Dear heavenly Father, I beg of you, bless Caleb. You, oh Lord, are the God of the underdog. You are the God of the broken and the down and out. You are the potter and you create beautiful things with your hands. I ask you to pick up the broken pieces of Caleb’s life and make something beautiful, something divine. I ask you to continue to write the story of Caleb’s life, for you write great stories. May the peace of the Lord Jesus enter into Caleb’s life even more than it already has. I ask of you Lord, protect Caleb… place angels about him and his family and where Caleb is, let only the Holy Spirit of God reside. “wave goodbye to the past, you’ve got your whole life to lead.” Amen
