Hi I'm Kade

I went to states for Academics Team, I'm an Eagle Scout, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in the church, and went to it the entirety of my life so far. I built my own computer and am the "tech wiz" in the household. My family owns a Yorkshire Terrier by the name of Coco. I graduated High school in 2014. I will be serving a mission, for the LDS church, in mexico, where i will speak Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. However, one can only thrive on the testimonies of others for so long. I went through a phase in which I rejected god, I didn't believe he existed, all at the age of about 15. I had a love for science classes at school like no other kid. By my sophomore year of high school, I had already received every credit in science that I needed, but I continued to take every course I could. Around my junior year, when I was in AP Chemistry, it hit me. The world is far to complex to have happened ex nihilo (out of nothing). The entirety of the universe was put before me in my mind, and no mater how I look at it, I couldn't believe that this all could have happened because of chance. I realized that there had to be some higher form of intelligence at work, one who could will things to happen, to create life. It was at this point that I had found that I accepted, and believed in the idea of God. I was still yet lost, as I did not know what to do, If a god existed, and had placed me here, I must have a form of purpose. If god existed, how could I receive guidance as to what he wished me to do. I began to look into every religion that had a single creator. The first thing I looked at was the people who followed each religion, and if I found that I did not find comfort when around those people or what they taught, that I couldn't stay. I then investigated the church I was born into, and that I was still attending at the time to make my parents happy. I actually investigated instead of just sitting there mindlessly like I had done for much of my life. I began to read the scriptures and prayed about them, and I felt the spirit answer my prayer. It was unlike anything else. Further investigation made me feel more and more at home, and at that moment, I knew that this was truly the church of god.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church on Sundays, for the full entirety. I attended seminary, which is comparable to bible study before school every school day. Recently I have just been called to serve a mission for the church in Torreon, Mexico, where I will be speaking Spanish.
