Hi I'm Elder Cade William

I have grown up in Utah all my life. I love to serve my Savior and Redeemer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Cade. One of my favorite things about our church buildings is that all of them have a gym. This is one of my favorite things because I love to play basketball. So not only am I in the house of the Lord, but I also get to participate in one of my favorite activities. During this time of my life I am serving a full time mission. The area that I am serving in is the France, Lyon Mission. I love the people of France and all that they bring into this world. While serving my mission I have strengthened my love for people every where but also more for my Savior Jesus Christ and for my loving Heavenly Father who has given me everything. The greatest reward we can obtain in this life is becoming a disciple of Christ. That is my purpose now, is to come unto Christ and to be called one of his faithful servants.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the love that I have for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I strive each and every day to become closer to him and to follow in his ways. I have chosen to be a member of His church because it the the only way to be happy on this earth and because it is the only way to return to our Heavenly Father and the only way to live with my family forever. I grew up in the gospel all of my life, but I wasn't converted until I was16 years old. I was attending a church camp and that is when the spirit testified unto me that the church is true. Because of that experience I now know that this is the only true church on this earth. I know that Jesus Christ lived and walked on this very earth, as well as sacrificing his life and atoning for my sins and heartache. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and translated the Book of Mormon. I know that the scriptures are true and provide us with revelation in our lives. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true and living prophet who guides us in these latter days. I know that as long as I am worthy I have the same power that Christ did, that power being the Priesthood.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by trying to have charity in my life and showing the pure love of Christ that I have. One way that I love to do this is by serving others. It is one of my favorite activities to do because when we are in the service of our fellow beings we are only in the service of our God. I live my faith everyday by showing the Lord that I want to do His will and not my own. I do this because at this point in my life I am serving a full time mission and doing what the Lord wants and following the promptings of the Holy Ghost. As I follow the promptings, I show my Heavenly Father that I am willing to follow His directions. As I have done this it has blessed others lives as well as my own.
