Hi I'm Kade

I grew up in Utah. I aspire to help others throughout my entire life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated high school. I am serving an LDS mission before I go to college. I grew up loving the mountains. I have skied and snowboarded as long as I can remember. I love being with my family and friends up in the canyons and mountains. I played lacrosse through junior high and high school. I aspire to be in the medical field because I want to have an occupation that evolves around helping others. I have been on a few different medical missions around the world and really loved everything about it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church so I do not have any other religious background. Because of this I have occasionally wondered in the past if what I had been raised in was really the true church like all my family believes. It always felt right to me but I had no other real reason besides that. So as I prayed and questioned and pondered a lot I realized something that really made me see what effect this church has on people. Both of my parents were also raised in the church. However, my dad's father (my grandpa) was never religious and was a heavy drinker all his life. So only his mother would go to church with the kids if they wanted to go. The effect that that had on the family was devastating. My dad being the oldest of 5 kids, 3 of them are inactive and heavy drinkers like my grandpa. Seeing his family and what the lack of the gospel has done to them is very sad to see. As I realized this, I then looked at my moms family. Both of her parents were very active in the church and effects of that on the family showed me how this gospel keeps families together forever and extremely happier than without the gospel. I know that this church has an extremely positive effect on people and you can see a difference in their lives when they have the blessing of the gospel in their lives.

How I live my faith

I was called to help lead and teach a group of teenagers from the ages of 16-18 in my ward. I did that for about a year and a half and now I have been released from that calling in order to serve as a full-time missionary in Buenos Aires Argentina for two years. I also home taught two families in my neighborhood with my dad for 4 years before leaving on my mission.
