Hi I'm Hayden

I am Australian. I have wrestled a crocodile and lived to tell the tale. I can't play the accordion . I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 7 the middle child of 5 brothers. I often hear "Your poor mother" but I think she got a pretty good deal. Family nights are the best especially when ego's aren't satisfied with a board game and things need to be settled by free-for-all wrestling match on the floor. I am studying Biomedical Science but hope one day to be employed at Sea World as a dolphin polisher. They assured me there was no such job, but how else do those beautiful creatures stay so shiny? I'm going to be honest I love life whether indoors or outdoors. Take me outside and I love to water-ski, go camping... like real Australian camping, playing soccer and fishing (even though I'm always the one coming home with no fish). On another day, give me a comfortable place to collapse with a good book or in front of a movie and I'm a happy man. I love food, I should be huge, maybe one day it will all catch back up.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who are Mormons so I grew up going to church and learning about God. Of course there came a time in my life where I wanted to know for myself if everything I was brought up hearing about was true. Through prayer I received my answer. I came to know we really do have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who lived a perfect life then suffered and died for us. I know that everything I am I owe to the way I was raised and the things I believe. I know that this is where I am truly happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each day to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I aim to be the kind of person that can always be counted on for help and who is a genuine friend to everyone I meet. I find joy when those around me are happy. Right now I put my life and everything at home on hold and am currently living in Tokyo Japan serving as a full-time volunteer missionary. I spend each and every day meeting new people and sharing what has brought so much peace and happiness to my life.
