Hi I'm D Hayden

I have grown up in Utah my entire life and have always been a member of the LDS church, and I love it.

About Me

Hello, my name is Elder Erickson. I am currently serving a mission and am loving it. I used to sing and play piano but now I am fully in the service of the Lord. I love the Church and am so pumped for the next two years. I am serving in Columbus Ohio.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the LDS church because when I was young I wasn't the best kid. The church brought such happiness to my life that I didn't really have before. The reason I continue to live it is because I have grown to know for myself that it is true. I see the happiness that faithful LDS people can bring into the lives of others and I love to be a part of that. This gospel guides us to be like the Savior. What better goal is there?

How I live my faith

Lately I have been living my faith by preparing to serve a mission for the LDS church. Sometimes I am asked to conduct music and play prelude for church. For the most part I just strive to be an active member of the church and serve wherever I am needed. I serve as a priest in my ward and basically try to help people feel loved.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

D Hayden
In the Church we have a great love for one another. We have strong family values that never change, even though the worlds values are continually shifting. Our church encourages us to be friends with everyone. The Church answers the questions that of 'who am I?' and 'where did I come from.' Show more Show less
