Hi I'm Wade

I'm a Yankees fan, I'm a runner, I'm a photographer and artist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Highland, Utah. I am currently living in Provo, Utah and attending Utah Valley University studying Public Relations and Marketing. I was blessed to serve a mission for the Lord in two amazing missions, I served for a time in the Birmingham Alabama Mission and also in the Buenos Aires West Mission. I grew up in a very athletic family so sports are a huge deal to me, I love playing baseball, tennis, volleyball, and football! But I also enjoy other aspects in life, I love art and photography, I have always loved painting and taking pictures. Family is also something that is important to me, I come from a very large family and we are all very close. Good food is another important part of my life, before my mission I had no idea how to cook, but I picked up a few things in the South and now it was one of my favorite things to do. Also good food with good company is the best

Why I am a Mormon

Having a strong relationship with Jesus Christ is very important for me, and being apart of the Mormon faith, I believe that my relationship with Christ grows everyday! I love the teachings of the Book of Mormon and applying them to my life, because they make me a happier person. And knowing that there is a living Prophet on the earth really helps me out a ton, I know that when I listen to his words and his teachings that I am doing what God wants me to do and I am following the path he has laid out for me. I also really enjoy the standards that the Church has established, they help me to maintain and live a clean and healthy life. Family is a huge thing for me as well and the emphasis on family really helps me to become closer with my family.

How I live my faith

I am so happy that my family has helped me live a good and faithful life and taught me how to live my life with a strong faith. I live my faith with a strong testimony. Because without my testimony I don't have faith. I have a very strong testimony of the Book of Mormon, and I read it daily to gain more faith in my Savior Jesus Christ. I surround myself with positive friends who uplift me in my faith, and encourage me to keep high standards, there are times when I make wrong choices but hey, who doesn't!? But my faith definitely helps me to know that I can repent of my mistakes, and strive to change and become better. I try and be an example to others with the way that I live hoping it will leave a good impression on them.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Missionaries go and proselyte, because the message that they share is a message of happiness and love. We as members want all our brothers and sisters to hear this message, and have the chance to learn more about it. Show more Show less
