Hi I'm Duncan Kading

I'm a Medic and a Firefighter. I love learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in a military family with my three younger siblings, allowing me to grow up in a variety of locations across the United States of America from Maryland to California. I have a love of learning and I try to make the most of every opportunity I get to do so. From Language, Medicine, or Mathmatics to Music, Nature, or Psychology and everything in between, I have a deep fascination of the world around me and I want to understand as much of it as I can. I graduated from both High School and a College the same year, completing courses that allowed me to become certified as both a Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician in the state of Ohio. I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout within the Boy Scouts of America around the same time, and with the skills I gained in doing these things, I hope to be there for many people when they need someone the most. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Washington Vancouver Mission so that I can share the the happiness and comfort that I have found in the gospel with everyone I meet!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon, I have prayed to know if it is true, and I have recieved a witness that it is. I have seen firsthand the happiness and blessings that come from following the example of Jesus Christ and adhering to his teachings. I find comfort in knowing where I came from, why I'm here, and where I'm going when I die, and I want to help other people find that same peace of mind.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be a disciple of Jesus Christ in everything I do. I do not claim to be perfect, I only claim to be doing my best. In the Book of Mormon, there is a book called Mosiah, in the 2nd chapter, and 17th verse, it states: "And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God" I have found that by serving others on my mission with all the energy and vigor I have, I have grown to care more deeply than ever before about the welfare of all those I meet. I hope to continue to do so long after my mission is over.
