Hi I'm Kaden Sego

I grew up in Utah. I Created my own music album. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have lived in Utah for most of my life. I have grown up in a family of six siblings, being the second oldest child and the oldest boy. Because of these circumstances, I have sacrificed a lot of time for our small farm and to spend time with my family. I love being outdoors, which includes camping, hiking, mountain biking, and being on the water. I love athletic activities such as soccer, basketball, pickleball, running, and working out! I enjoy reading and writing, as long as there is a useful purpose behind it. I am very outgoing person, and I love spending time with family and friends. Music has always been a big part of my life. When I was ten years old I started piano lessons. I started to compose music seriously in my youth, and by sixteen I released an album of personally composed piano solos. If you wanna check it out my music is on YouTube! https://www.youtube.com/user/KadenSego

Why I am a Mormon

As I previously said, I grew up as a Mormon! However, I have had my own, personal conversion experience. My true conversion started in my early youth. At this point I had honestly questioned how my church could compare to other religions. During a youth trip I had the privilege to visit the Sacred Grove, which is where Joseph Smith was visited by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. When I arrived at the site I expected to receive one of those "lightbolt" answers. However, such was not the case. Instead, I received a very peaceful, warm feeling the entire time I was there. From that experience, I spent a lot of time reading the scriptures and praying. The answer I searched for did not come immediately. However, through my diligence of prayer and searching I have since come to the conclusion that the Church is true. I know it will take effort, but I can promise you can receive an answer to your prayers through the Holy Ghost as I did. It may just be something as simple as a warm feeling when you pray. I also know that Jesus Christ lives, and that his church has been restored.

How I live my faith

I have been extremely blessed to be raised in the faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) by loving parents ever since I was born! I have lived in the same ward (a ward is a congregation of saints) for almost my entire life! Because I have grown up in the church, I have been blessed with many ways to serve God's children. The greatest way I served others in my youth was through magnifying my calling in the Aaronic Priesthood. Within the Aaronic Priesthood are three offices: deacon, teacher, and priest. There are various blessings associated with the Aaronic Priesthood, and I will mention some of them. When I turned 12 years old I was ordained a deacon, which I was blessed with the authority to pass the emblems of the sacrament, and also to collect fast offerings, which are charity funds collected to support individuals in the community who are in need of financial assistance. When I became a teacher at age 14 I was blessed to serve others through preparing the emblems of the sacrament, home teaching (Monthly visits to members in the ward), and completing all the duties of a deacon. When I turned 16 I was ordained to the office of a priest. Within this calling came many more responsibilities such as the authority to baptize others, blessing the emblems of the sacrament, and confirming others to the Aaronic priesthood. Through this calling, I was blessed to have the privilege to prepare, bless, and pass the sacrament to shut-in members in their homes. Every time I went I always felt a great amount of joy, as well as their love and appreciation for the sacrament. The opportunities to serve others through the Aaronic priesthood has truly blessed me.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Kaden Sego
It is a sacrifice, but the church has asked for missionaries to provide the funds for their own missions. To pay for my mission I worked as a plumber. It was sometimes very crappy (literally), but because I have personally created the funds for my mission, my mission has been something that means a lot more to me. Show more Show less
