Hi I'm Kade Kress

I like to joke and make others smile. I love playing sports and spending time with family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Idaho being the middle child of three. Since first grade I always loved football, basketball, track, and baseball. What was so great about sports is how I was able to share some great memories with my family. Spending time with my family was something that I could never get enough of (well....sometimes). I also enjoyed Boy Scouts because of all the cool experiences like white water rafting and climbing mountains. But now I get to experience something completely different as I get to serve as a Missionary for the Church in Germany for the next two years!

Why I am a Mormon

What I love so much about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is how much it stresses the importance of the family unit. The church has helped my family become closer and has helped us to grow together. I know that families can be together forever and that means the world to me. I am Mormon because I know that the Church Jesus Christ set up when he was on the world has been restored for us and that is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I want to follow his teachings and do as he would guide me to do because I love our Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by something very important to me and that is service. I love making others happy so any chance I get to help, whether it's helping an elderly couple with their yard or coaching an elementary basketball team, I always enjoy doing it. I try to set an example for the younger kids by showing my sportsmanship in athletics. Throughout all of high school football I always wanted to be the kid who knocked you down, but then helped you up. Jesus Christ has set such a great example for us so I try my best (but can always do better) to have those Christ like attributes. I have strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I try to not only share it with words, but also with actions. Because sometimes, "Actions speak louder than words."
