Hi I'm Hayden

I'm living the dream everyday... and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

 I'm a college student with a lot ahead of me in life..! I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho with an awesome family and great friends. Currently I'm living in New England where I am meeting new people everyday and getting to share the gospel with them and provide a witness of Jesus Christ. In my life sports have always been something I like to spend a lot of time doing. Through high school I played football, basketball and tennis where I learned a lot about discipline and accountability. My absolute favorite things to do are action sports though. A hot day at the lake on the wakeboard is all I need! In my life though, I have found so much happiness through a good attitude and positive outlook. Those things combined with Christ's restored gospel and his teachings have brought me peace and happiness that everyone on this planet needs. For my future I want to have my own family that I can learn, love and grow with. I've also got a lot of school ahead of me so I can pursue a career in dentistry. That's who I am and my faith is what allows all of it to be possible!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon for a lot of reasons..! It makes sense to me, the Holy spirit has told me it's true, the values taught are essential to live in today's world, the teachings are the same as Christ's, and many more reasons... The most influential reason for me though is the lives of the faithful Latter Day Saints all over the world. Time and time again I find myself amazed at the quality of the people faithful Mormons are. It's their examples and their lives that have influenced me for good throughout my life.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by being a good example to everyone I meet. As I've grown up I've seen too many people get caught up in the details and overlook the simple things that we all need to master. "...By small and simple things are great things brought to pass..." - Alma Ch 37 Vs 6. It's the small and simple things like loving everyone, serving others, reading God's word each day, being obedient to God's commandments, and turning to my Heavenly Father in prayer that makes me stronger and allows me to be a good example to others. The power of examples have been tremendous in my life and I strive to be that kind of example to others. As I have grown up I can't remember what my leaders and teachers told me... But I remember clearly the things that they did. Their examples of the things they did and how they lived are what made an impact on me. So I live my faith by trying to be a positive influence and great example to each and every person I meet. 

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Increasing our faith in Jesus Christ is easy as long as we are persistent in our efforts. The simple things such as scripture study, prayer, attending church, sharing our testimonies of Christ and striving to live the way Christ lived will increase our faith in him. It all comes down to our persistence though. It's vital that we do these things on a consistent basis, and not just when we "want" to. Show more Show less
