Hi I'm James Hayward

I am your everday guy but I happen to be a mormon

About Me

I am a sports freak! I love anything that provides physical activity. I like to workout and stay in shape. Summer is the best I love to lay by the pool and get tan and just to hang out with friends. I am all about family my family is the most important to me besides my religion. I love being friends with everyone and just having a good time and laughing lots. I like to try new things and see all that this beautiful world has to offer. I am currently serving a full time mission in Vancouver,Canada. I love it. The people are amazing. Before my mission I was attending Dixie State University where I was working on getting into the business program. I plan on attending college afterwards to get my degree in business, but for now I am out serving my Savior and my Father in Heaven its the best thing I could be doing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised mormon from about the age of 8 my mom converted in her thirties. I had always gone to church cause my mom told me it was the thing to do so I loved her and wanted to make her happy. Later on in life tho I strayed a bit from the church cause I hadn't recieved my own confirmation of the truthfulness of it yet. But as I was out looking for the truth and happiness in other venues I realized that what I was looking for was what was taught to me as a boy. So I had always had a desire to serve as a missionary even when I strayed for a bit so as I cleaned up my act so that I could serve a mission I realized as I starting applying the principles that the church teaches that this truly is God church on the earth his one and only true church and that by abiding by its precepts one could find the happiness that comes only from living the gospel. So I found out for myself that it truly was Gods church by trying it out for myself and I guess you could say proving God and his promises he makes to the members of his church or anyone that lives his Gospel. So I dont know alot in my 20 years of age but one thing I do know without a shadow of a doubt is that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is truly Gods church and that he still runs it today. I still dont know everything and have lots of questions but what I do know helps me overcome what I dont know. .

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by trying to be my best self and live the best life that I can. I am not perfect far from it but I know that I will never reach that here in this life I know all that my Savior requries of me is that I do my absolute best and that he will make up the rest. I am currently serving my 2yr mission tho helping others come to find out for themselves what I came to know
