Hi I'm Easton Hedman

I'm from South Jordan, Utah. I am going on a mission to Rapid City, South Dakota. I am a mormon.

About Me

I play guitar and sing in the band Hardly Common. I love being with friends and family. I like to play ping pong and Zelda! I have an older sister who goes to BYU-Provo, a little brother in High School, and a little sister in middle school. I have a very strong testimony of this church and I know it to be true. I grew up in the church as a little kid, and fell away in my teen years. I did things that were contrary to the teachings of the church. I had some very good friends who convinced me to read the Book of Mormon. I read it and prayed about it. I found that the writings of the book were true, and the spirit testified of that to me directly. I repented of my bad habits and strived to make my testimony grow! Since my friends gave me that book, my life has taken a turn for the better, but there were still trials. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease right after my sophomore year in high school. I asked myself why this could be happening! Through the scriptures I read D&C 122:7. It helped me to realize that the trials that I go through makes me a better person! God gives me trials to grow! This church has blessed my life in so many ways, and I am out on a mission to share that gospel with the people of South Dakota.

Why I am a Mormon

I have read the Book of Mormon and know it to be true. I have also felt the saviors love in my life when I am in times of need. I know the atonement to be true. It's amazing to go from feeling guilty everyday and feeling like there is no happiness in the world to being able to repent, and feeling the savior's love for yourself. It's hard to find a day where I can't smile anymore. This gospel has brought me so much happiness.

How I live my faith

I have been a teachers quorum president and a stake representive for my ward. I am a home teacher with my dad for three different families. I am going on a mission to Rapid City, South Dakota.
