Hi I'm Kade

I grew up in eastern Washington. I am a cancer survivor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play a variety of sports though my all time favorite is basketball. I love hanging out with my family and friends. I am interested in computers and graphic design. I love playing 2K17 with my friends on Xbox. I will graduate from high school in a few weeks and I plan on attending college majoring in something to do with computers. First, I plan on attending a two year mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have practiced this faith my entire life. When I was 18 months old I was diagnosed with cancer and given a 10% chance to live. I do not remember much about this time in my life, but I do know that my Heavenly Father was watching over me and pouring out His blessings upon me during my treatments. I know that He continues to bless me each day of my life. I know I have a purpose on this earth and a knowledge of where I lived before coming to earth, why I am here on this earth, and where I will go after I leave this earth. I know that my Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ live and that they love all of us. They want us to be happy and to live with them again with our families forever. I know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ we can accomplish this. I know that my life has purpose and I want others to know the happiness following Jesus Christ brings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those around me. Many of my friends do not go to church an so we have many discussions about my faith and beliefs. I love having discussions with them that strengthen my love for my Heavenly Father and gives my friends some ideas about our Heavenly Father. I regularly participate in church activities and serve whenever I can in the community helping others. I just finished tutoring elementary students in math after-school three days a week for the past several months. I enjoy serving and helping others any way I can.
