Hi I'm Caden

I love sports. I am serving a mission in Chile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Caden. I am serving a mission in Chile, after which I will attend Brigham Young University. I grew up in Arizona. I have always loved sports, with basketball being my favorite. I played basketball and football in high school. I watch sports religiously, and love studying the statistics behind the games. I am an avid Chicago Cubs fan. I love to bike, and completed the 104 mile Tour de Tuscon this past year. I enjoy skiing, and had the opportunity to go to Whistler Blackcomb in Canada to ski. I also have a deep love for music. I play the violin and the piano, and sing in choirs. I played in my high school's orchestra, and had the opportunity to travel to various competitions and festivals. My junior year we traveled to New York City and performed in the famed Carnegie Hall. We also got to tour the city and see some of the shows and attractions. It was an amazing experience I will never forget. I have played both the piano and violin for about 8 years. I also had the opportunity to sing with East Valley Millennial Choirs and Orchestras as part of their Concert Choir Men. It is an amazing gift to be able to touch the lives of others through music, and something I hope to do for the rest of my life. I was recently called to serve in the Chile Concepcion South mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel so much. It has provided more joy to me than anyone else. In times of need I can always look to my heavenly father and Jesus Christ to help me out. I love being around the great members of the church. I have had the opportunity to have some of the best leaders ever, and they have inspired me to do great things. I have seen the happines it has brought to my family, and know that we will be together forever. My mom has had 7 miscarriages and it is comforting to know I will see those children again someday. The hope and peace this gospel brings me helps me endure difficult trials, and I want to be the best servant of God I possibly can.

How I live my faith

I am dedicating two years of my life to the Lord. I look to him in all things, and recognize the love he has for me. I was president of the youth choir in my ward. I live the commandments God has given me. I attended seminary for four years. I look to be an example to my younger siblings and invite the spirit in wherever possible. In my church I have participated in many callings, and love to serve. I strive to be the best person I can be.
