Hi I'm Hayden

...and I'm definitely a Mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest of 3 plus 6 more siblings that I'm blessed to call part of the fam. I love being outdoors and spending time with friends and family. I love love love sports.. basketball, softball, track, football, lacrosse, you name it I play or watch it! I am currently serving in the Texas Houston East Mission (T.H.E. Mission of the Church). I LOVE Texas and being able to serve the people here in Houston!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I chose to be! Although I was raised in the Church, there came a point in my life where I had to experience conversion. That came after long nights of studying the Book of Mormon, and lots and lots of praying. I received my answer through feelings of peace and comfort from the Holy Ghost. I know that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and that He suffered, died, and was resurrected three days later so that I could return to live with my Father in Heaven forever. I know that through Christ, Joseph Smith was called to restore His perfect church back on the Earth again. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and a witness to the world that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church on Earth today. I'm a Mormon because all the things I know, bring peace into my life and ultimately make me happy (simple as that)!!

How I live my faith

I've participated quite a bit in service activities for the community back home, cleaning the walkways near the river, shoveling the patio homes for the elderly after snow storms. That's one thing I love about being a member of the Church, there is tons of opportunities to serve neighbors and bring a sense of community to the area. How I live concerning the aspects and teachings of the gospel, I am continually striving to keep the commandments and follow the example that Jesus Christ set. I try each day to be more like him, and do my best to develop those Christlike attributes that he exemplified!
