Hi I'm Hayden Manwaring

I'm a songwriter. Music is my muse. I wish I could fly. Jimmy cracked corn. Batman + Ice cream = :D -And of course, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

"Music's in my soul. I can hear it everyday, every night, it's the one thing on my mind. Music's got control. And I'm never letting go." -Jonas Brothers.... Haha! That pretty much defines who I am. Music is pretty much my life! I'm a 20 year old Apple Jack's lover from Vernal UT. And i'm a big-time dreamer! I constantly find myself caught up in a future-istic super-stellar life that will probably never happen. But if you don't dream about the future you might get stuck in the past right? In my free time I either play, listen to, write, record, or perform music. What else is there? Haha I also love the mach 5 adreneline surge that you get while rocking people's world with small-time, no-good, punk macharati bands... (Even though they are usually little, unknown, hard-to-find venues with broken-down smelly graffiti-bathrooms...) But still, It's probably the best thing to do in your spare time. Ha. Over the past couple-three years I have recorded a few fruitylicious albums. They often tend to curiously tickle the cushy back layer of your vital chest thumper... My most recent project was a shorter album entitled: "Dear Alyssa," by "Miracle in the Making." ---Available on iTunes ;)---

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's the best lifestyle there is. The world is changing. Values are decreasing and standards are losing their once highly acknowledged status. The world is full of people and elements that simply do more damage to families and individuals than they do good. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one church that teaches it's youth and members to live a wholly life that is centered around Jesus Christ. Not just to go to church every sunday for a recharge... but to strive everyday to be like Jesus Christ. To gain his Godly attributes and characteristics and internalize them. To be like Jesus Christ. Even he himself has commanded: "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5:48) And when one lives that type of lifestyle, worries wash away, and peace and contentment can come in and soothe the soul. Is it an easy lifestyle? Absolutely not. Is it worth it? Most definitely.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Iowa Des Moines mission. I am here to spread the truth and joy -that I get to experience every day- with my brothers and sisters; the millions of people that surround me.
