Hi I'm Hayden

I live in Montana. I love to play music. I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music! I enjoy listening, playing, and occasionally composing music. I am a high school graduate, and will be serving a mission in New York in a couple of months! I also enjoy hiking, ultimate frisbee, and getting to know new people!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon for my whole life. When I was younger, I went to church and lived by all of God's commandments simply because my parents, and many other people that I trusted told me that it was the right thing to do. I never experienced any negative effects from living by the standards of the Mormon church, so I figured that it was an OK thing to be doing. But as I got into my high school years, I felt that I needed to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was true. I prayed many, many times to know if the Book of Mormon was true, and if I was attending the true church of God. My answer did not come all at once, but by the end of high school I knew with all of my heart that the Book of Mormon is a true book. I knew that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's one completely true church, and that I would receive blessings from my Heavenly Father if lived by the commandments of God. I still know those things to be true today. It was a sweet experience to find out for myself, and I will never regret asking the Lord if this church is true. I have received so much happiness, joy, and peace in my life because of my decision to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those around me. In my high school there were not a lot of Mormons, and I was often noticed for having different standards than most of the other students. This gave me many chances to stand up for my beliefs, and others around me saw that I was living my faith. In a couple of months I will also be living my faith by serving a two-year mission in New York, to help invite others to come unto Christ.
