Hi I'm Paden

I'm from Boise, Idaho, the greatest place on earth. I'm an athlete and missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old. I have been involved in sports all my life, namely football and rugby. I love the outdoors. Hiking and camping are some of my favorite things to do. All throughout school I have been a member of the school choirs. I love to sing and I am currently learning ukulele! My family and I are also recreational shooters. I have gone to one year of college and plan on returning to complete my education and earn a degree in history after I come home from my mission to Concepcion, Chile in 2015.

Why I am a Mormon

This is a religion of joy and I love to be happy.

How I live my faith

The best parts of my church experiences have been with the young men's groups. We constantly are together laughing and having fun at our activities. We love to go out and serve others together and that brings us closer and helps us feel the spirit. Our leaders have been the best! They have all been great teachers and role models for me as I was growing up. In our group we always had the perfect balance of fun and the spirit of the Lord.

Are Mormons Christians?

We are Christians Because we believe in Jesus and that he is our Lord and Savior. He died for us and our sins so that we may live him again one day. Show more Show less
