Hi I'm Hayden

I love sports, especially playing them, I love to laugh, I love smiles, I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 20 year old missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints serving in Wisconsin. I have 5 sisters, but I am the second oldest, 1 brother-in law and the two best parents in the world. I grew up in the great state of Idaho and have fallen in love with the potato...I love football, baseball, and basketball, and the summer and fall seasons. I love laughing, especially when you laugh so hard you cry. I love to see people smile. I love music from the 80's 90's and early 2000's and could listen to it all day. Spicy pork and mashed potatoes are always good, bridge jumping is a must in the summer. I like to go to movies. I like a lot of things I guess, but don't we all..

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know the church is true...it is that simple. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ so much and everything in my life that has been good has been because of my faith. Also when I was a senior in High School I broke my leg 4 days before baseball season started. I wanted to play so bad because my football season did not go as planned and I wanted to make up for it in baseball. I was so heart broken. I did the usual pouting and I prayed to Heavenly Father why did this have to happen to me. I did everything wrong at first. One thing that I did do though was go to the scriptures. All my life I was taught that when you have a problem you can go to the scriptures and find answers, so I went and searched diligently. I was getting a little frustrated because nothing seemed to help, I could not find one scripture that would help. Then one night as I came across it, ALMA 36 verse 3. Alma gives advice to his son Helaman to put trust in Heavenly Father and he will support us in your trials and troubles. That scripture has changed my life and brought me to understand that God does hear our prayers and is mindful all of his children.

How I live my faith

As of right now I am a full time missionary serving in Wisconsin. It is really easy to live my faith for these 2 years as all I do is talk with people about my faith. But above that the way I live my faith is best represented in my most favorite primary song. "I'm trying to be like Jesus" As I try to be like the savior and love as he did, to help others and to choose the right I know that i am doing all i can do to live my faith. Trying to be like Jesus is not always easy, but I sure know that it is worth it in the end.
