Hi I'm Hayden Atchley

I'm a Mormon. And I love it!

About Me

I've lived in Idaho's Treasure Valley for almost my entire life. I love music; I play the piano, cello, and French horn, and I've started to write some of my own music. I've been called to serve a mission in Moscow, Russia, and I couldn't be more excited to get out there and serve God!

Why I am a Mormon

Quite simply, I'm a Mormon because I know the Gospel is true. Throughout my life, I've had many experiences that have strengthened this knowledge. I strive every day to keep all of God's commandments, but I certainly fall short of perfection; I make mistakes as much as anyone else. Almost paradoxically, though, it's those mistakes that have drawn me closer to the Savior. Those mistakes have taught me how to use the gift of the Atonement, and to truly feel its influence and comfort. I can't tell you how many times I've been comforted by the Lord in times when I need it most. I know that God truly is mindful of each and every one of us, and wants nothing but the best for us. I know that the Savior suffered and died for all mankind, and that we can use His gift to seek and receive God's forgiveness of any sin we may commit. I know that Christ's true Gospel was restored to the Earth through the prophet Joseph Smith, and that His authority has been restored as well. Above all, I know that we have the opportunity to return to live with God through the grace of Christ's sacrifice, and that there is no other way by which we may do so.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving a Church mission in Moscow, Russia. I'm excited to help others receive God's truth and come closer to Christ!
