Hi I'm Kade

I'm studying to be a physical therapist. I love to play basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm happily married and we are expecting our first child in December. I'm currently finishing my bachelors degree in Kinesiology and will soon be attending grad school to become a physical therapist. I love all kinds of sports; both watching and playing them. My favorite to watch is football. My favorite to play is basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church, but never had a testimony of my own until my senior year of high school. I got into the party scene during high school, but felt that I wasn't reaching my full potential and wasn't as happy as I could be. I went to a EFY (Especially for Youth), which is a week long LDS summer camp and one of my counselors invited me to pray and ask Heavenly Father if Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I decided to give a try and that night Heavenly Father answered my prayer through the gift of the Holy Ghost. I started to change my life and the decisions that I made and as I did so I found a greater happiness and peace than I had ever experienced before. I went on to serve a mission and everything good in my life I attribute to my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His church. My favorite scripture is found in the Book of Mormon (Mosiah 2:41) because I have seen its truthfulness in my life. I know this church is true and I'm so thankful for it.

How I live my faith

I just got released from my previous calling in the church which was as an instructor for the young men (ages 16-17). I had this calling for over 2 years and absolutely loved the interaction with the youth, but I'm grateful for my new calling working with the men of the church. I am responsible for being an example to them, organizing events, visiting with them and their families, serving them, and teaching them.
