Hi I'm Rayden

I'm a 5th generation Arizonan. I'm a quiet soul who will listen to anyone. I point others to answers they need, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the kind of person who will listen more than speak, but I can make conversation when the need arises. I am always trying to be kind to those around me, whether it's laughing at jokes, sharing an insight, or just showing up. I love reading in the scriptures and from other wholesome books. I love spending time with my family, whether playing video games, eating dinner, or just relaxing in the front room and chatting.

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints; I've read the Book of Mormon for myself and I know of its truth. I've felt the power of Christ's atonement and the peace it brings into my life on a daily basis. This is the only church with God's restored gospel on earth. I've felt the power of the restored priesthood. This is God's work. Of this I testify in the name of our Lord and Savior, even Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Currently, I'm in the Provo Missionary Training Center readying myself in order to share this glorious gospel of peace with the people of Japan. In March I'm going to the Japan Tokyo South mission to invite others to come unto Christ and find the peace that He can bring.

What is being a Mormon like?

In one word? Awesome! Everyone is really friendly and always willing to help out with any problems. While some people say that Mormons are a stuck-up, self-righteous people, I want to point out that those people aren't exclusively Mormons. Sure you've got the occasional idiot that boasts about how many more service hours he gave than you, but don't all religions have someone like that? I think the reason people are hesitant to talk about religion is because it is a tender subject for many reasons. But Mormons are not afraid of their religion; they feel that it's the most pure and joyous thing in their life. Show more Show less
