Hi I'm Cade

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My whole life, especially in my high school years, I have loved snowmobiles and atv's. I love going to the sand dunes, or in the winter just riding my snowmobile through the mountains. I also love working on machines, especially with my brother. I remember when I first rebuilt the motor on my snowmobile, I was so excited, and it was a great accomplishment for me. I learned so much that is so valuable to me, and hope to be able to do it with my kids some day. I enjoyed high school. My favorite and strongest subject is math. I loved taking Calculus and really challenging my mind. I have always loved thinking and using my brain, which is essential in math. During high school, I worked on a hog farm. My best friend grew up on the farm, and got me a job at that farm. I loved after work hanging out with his family, and going and hanging out with friends as well. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I love Jesus Christ. I know Jesus Christ wants me to be happy in life, and following the prophet of the church brings me that happiness. I have prayed and asked God if being a Mormon is the right thing to do, and I have been answered, time and time again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best everyday to follow Jesus Christ. Some days it feels like I am just holding on, or enduring through personal weakness and shortcomings. I have found that Christ can provide healing and hope for everyone, regardless of their trial. Nothing in this world feels better than to find hope in the Savior, especially during the days when you feel like you are a complete failure.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Mormon's believe in strong, united families. We believe that our family relationships don't end in this life, but go on in the next life forever. This truth has brought so much happiness into my life because I am very close with my family. My thought on it is, why would God put people in family units if that unit were to not exist in the next life in his kingdom? We are in family units in this life to prepare us to be families in the next life, happy and united, forever. We can have that happiness and unity through following the teachings of Jesus Christ in this life. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

When the missionaries come to your home, they will want to get to know you briefly and befriend you. They possibly will bring a member from our church who will wish to get to know you and help you in any way they can. The missionaries will talk about things pertaining to our beliefs, such as where our church came from, where the book of mormon came from, why we believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's church once again established on the earth, and how these things can bless your life and the lives of others. The missionaries will offer to do any service for you that you feel they could help with. Show more Show less

What is the Church’s position on abortion?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is against abortion, with a few exceptions. A case where incest or rape has occured brings the consideration of an abortion into play. As well, if the mother's life is in danger, or the baby has severe defects to where doctors can predict the death of the baby before birth, then an abortion can be considered. All of these situations are NOT an automatic "yes" to have an abortion. In each of these cases and only these cases, much prayer is required to find an answer from God. As well, the women contemplating an abortion should consult her bishop or branch president for further help and guidance. Other things should be considered as well, such as adoption. The reason the church is against abortions is because God has made it clear that we do not kill, nor do anything like unto it, from D&C 59, verse 6. God also commanded us not to kill when he revealed the 10 commandments to Moses. The scripture in the Doctrine and Covenants is essential because it has the added "nor do anything like unto it." Some people would argue that abortion is not killing a living human being, but it cannot be argued that it's at least similar to murder, if not equivalent. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

The reason Mormon missionaries proselyte is really answered in the new testament. Jesus taught his followers to teach everyone and baptize them Matthew 2819. A missionaries primary purpose is to do just that: To help everyone receive the gospel of Jesus Christ, which has been restored to the earth in it's purest and perfect form. One important thing to realize is that missionaries love what they do. If you ever see Mormon missionaries on the streets or knocking on your door, just listen to the message they have, and be interested. They will get so happy and excited, because they want you to receive the blessings that are available to you, which is contained in the message they share. Why else would the missionaries sacrifice two years of their lives, especially years they could be going to college, to pay their own way to go somewhere they don't even choose to go to preach a simple message, with no tangible reward regardless of how well they do? Because it's the only thing in this world that will bring true peace. We have this message, and we want everyone else to enjoy it with us. Show more Show less
