Hi I'm Bobby Dayley

I have grown up in Utah all my life. I am a runner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have just graduated from High School and am preparing to serve a mission in Korea. In High School I was involved Cross Country and Track. I ran all the events from 400 meters up to 5 kilometers. I had dreams of running at the State meet, but I didn't quite make the cut. Even though that was frustrating, my worth as a person does not depend on whether I am a champion or not. I am also an Eagle Scout and I enjoy my life

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was already members of the church, so getting used to the Church was not difficult for me. As a kid, I just went through the motions and said I am in the right place because everyone else says its true. When I was 14, my ward challenged us to read the Book of Mormon in 100 days. I loved the stories in the Book of Mormon, and it felt right, but I had never read it for myself and didn't know for sure. After finishing the book and reading Moroni's promise, I took it, and I felt this powerful but soft feeling and from that moment, I knew it was true. I hold to that and other experience's I have to stay faithful. I am also a Mormon because it makes me feel happy. It really does

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a lot more than just going to church on Sunday's. It is an everyday thing. Whether it is by reading my scriptures everyday or praying or going to the temple, I try to live my faith the best that I can everyday. Also I will be living my faith when I go on my mission and try to help others learn about the faith that I have and help them learn that they can have it too. When I really put my best effort into trying to live my faith, I can feel the spirit and know it is right.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Bobby Dayley
Mormons believe in Jesus Christ and all of his teachings and values that he established on the Earth and continues to do in Heaven. Now if the people in the church want to emulate Him, they would have to follow in His footsteps. Jesus performed many miracles in Jerusalem and in America, he even healed the man's ear who was coming to arrest him and take him to be crucified. If Jesus would heal his friends, and his enemies, then it would make since that Mormons would help those of their own faith and others outside of their faith. Jesus Christ was perfect, but people are not. People make mistakes, and Mormons are people, so they may not follow directly in Christ's path, but they try to stay as close to it as they can. I heard a story about a man who was interviewed by the media after Hurricane Katrina. He said their were only two groups that came to their immediate aid, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the churches official name) and the Mormons. He probably was not a member but, he recognized the church who came to his aid. Mormons do their best to try and help other people. Show more Show less
