Hi I'm Payton

I grew up in Arizona. I'm studying to be a Occupational Therapist. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a college student who loves to spend time with family and friends. I love to eat and go shopping. I enjoy playing the piano. I like to play all kinds of sports, from volleyball to softball to racquetball.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but there comes a time in your life that you have to figure out for yourself if the gospel is true. I was in 9th grade and I was taking a seminary class. I had an amazing teacher who encouraged each of his students to try and set a goal of reading our scriptures and praying daily. He also helped me learn how to identify inspiration from the Holy Ghost. As I was trying to read my scriptures daily I got a feeling of peace, comfort, and joy each time I read them. I prayed to God know if the Book of Mormon was true. As I read my scriptures more and more the answer was yes! The things that I read made sense to me, and I just knew it was right. My belief in the gospel has continued to grow since then. It first started with reading the Book of Mormon and asking God if it was true.

How I live my faith

I go to a singles ward. I am part of a committee that plans group activities for the women in the ward. We try to help plan events that will help us grow closer as friends.
