I had an epiphany today while sitting in the oncologist's office. There's so much talk and paraphernalia about finding cures for cancer. There's bitter talk about why Heavenly Father would allow such suffering. I sat there thinking to myself, No. My heart tells me it's not like that at all! ... Think of the communities and families that have come together to love, serve, and mourn with one another.

Our Father in heaven provides opportunities every day for us to keep his commandments, to follow His ultimate example of serving, loving, caring for His spirit children, our spirit brothers and sisters. I get to experience firsthand on a daily basis how beautiful the hearts of mankind really are.

Turn off the news of contentious politics, crime, and adultery for a bit. You'll find a world of compassion. PLEASE ACCEPT MY GRATITUDE to all those who uplift and show me what leading a Christ-like life is really all about. Loads and loads of LOVE!!!

Kade 'Rocks'

Kaden has always had an astounding attention span for a kid and has been putting that to good use over the past couple of weeks.  He has used YouTube and books to give himself guitar lessons and learn how to write some sheet music.  Click on the link to hear a demo clip and see if you can follow along with the songs. 


  1. Kayden,
    At such a young age, you have been blessed with a real talent in music. I was very impressed. Kepp up the great work, I would love to hear more. We sure miss you and your brother and sisters in our primary ( in Simi Valley). May God bless you always.
    Love, Sister Schwarz

  2. Wow...impressive Kaden. I hope you keep up the practicing. Did your mom ever tell you about the famous rockstars we went to high school with? If not, ask her to tell you about Rick and Sean Woolstenhulme. Rick is the drummer of Lifehouse now!

    Great job buddy. Keep up the good work :)

  3. Kade,

    You are so talented! Keep making people smile with your music.
