Hi I'm Hayden

I grew up in southern California. I enjoy playing sports and going to the beach. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm Hayden Clegg. I am currently from Laguna Niguel, CA but grew up all over California. I am currently serving a mission in the Colorado, Colorado Springs mission. My favorite hobbies are playing all sports but I especially love playing football. I love to hang out with my friends and go to the beach with them. Growing up I loved to do a lot of crazy and dangerous things. I enjoy being outdoors hiking or rock climbing or swimming. After my mission I hope to grow and mullet and ride a majestic white stallion down the sandy beaches of Capistrano. I love life and I love the people in my life. I went to college for a year before my mission and when I get off my mission I will be going to college again and hope to major in civil engineering and then be attending law school. I also hope to be able to travel the world. And I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. But I truly believe that the reason I am a mormon is because I the example my parents have set for me. They have always kept true to their covenants and have always shown love toward one another and to their children. When I was a teenager I made some mistakes as most teenagers do but because of my parents example I was able to see for myself the true power of our saviours atonement and his grace and mercy. I was able to be strengthened by the restored priesthood power and I will ever be grateful for that. When I was younger I did rely upon the testimony of others but now I can truly say that I am converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ and I know for myself that this his church once again restored to the earth. I am grateful that my Heavenly Father gave me the blessing of being born in this gospel. I am a mormon because Jesus is the Christ.

How I live my faith

I believe I live my faith on a day to day basis by thanking the lord for each day through my actions. Currently I am serving a full mission in Colorado Springs. The decision to go on a mission was a tough one for me. I left behind loved ones as well as a sports scholarship in college to serve the lord. But I know that the decision that I made was the right one and I am grateful to the lord everyday for the mercy, grace and patience that he shows me. I have a strong desire to serve my king and my master Jesus Christ because I am forever grateful for his sacrifice for me. The atonement of the son of god is something that has become so real to me in these past 2 years and I know now that Jesus truly is The Christ. I love the lord and I try to show that everyday by how I treat those around me and I stay aware that I am always a representative of him. I try to live in such a way so that when people meet me their desire to follow Christ will increase. I try to live my life to always be worthy of my father in heavens spirit. I live my life the way I do because this is the true restored gospel of Jesus Christ and I want my God and his son to be proud of me.
