Hi I'm Payton

I'm 18 years old. I'm from South Georgia. I'm preparing to serve a full time mission for the church. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have red hair and too many freckles to even count. I graduated with honors from high school (class of 2017). I have been called to serve in the Washington Tacoma Mission as a full time missionary for 2 years. I am super excited at this opportunity to serve as a missionary. I enjoy outdoor stuff like hunting and fishing. I also love watching sports, especially football and baseball. I am also an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it's such a blessing to know that we have the full, restored Gospel of Jesus Christ back on the earth. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lives, and they love us. I am so grateful for Jesus Christ, and for His willingness to sacrifice His life so that we can return to live in Heaven again with our Heavenly Father. I love my family very much, and the knowledge that we can be together forever, even after death, is comforting to know. I'm grateful for this church and all that it stands for. I don't know what my life would be like if I didn't have the commandments to follow or the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life.

How I live my faith

Usually, the best way I live my faith is keeping the commandments and living a righteous life, whether I am at home or work. I also do my best to serve others and help those when needed, even if it is something as simple as holding the door for someone. As I do these things, it makes me feel good about myself. It's a wonderful feeling to know that you helped another person out.
