Hi I'm Hayden

I am a sophomore in college. I play golf. I am serving a mission in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have graduated high school. I play golf and basketball and I like to play all sorts of other sports in my free time. I am on an LDS mission and After my mission I am going to college to play collegiate golf at Southern Utah University.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Mormon church my entire life. My parents are faithful members and set an example for me to follow. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true scripture and another testament of Jesus Christ. I was under constant pressure to make wrong choices in high school, but being a Mormon makes it easy for me to have a reason to stay away from bad decisions. I also love this church because I can repent of a bad choice and move forward with stronger resolution. Another reason I am a Mormon is because the friendships you make in the LDS church are meaningful and long-lasting. I have never felt alone or left out in the Mormon church because there are so many good people in the Mormon church that share my standards.

How I live my faith

I was one of the youth leaders of my ward youth group. I hold the priesthood and I prepared and blessed the sacrament every Sunday for my ward in Cortez. I went to my youth activities on Wednesday nights and I tried to attend dances and other fun events set up by the church. I often helped set up stake events when my youth leaders asked me to. I am now in the process of serving a two year mission for the Church. I have been called to serve in the Czech/Slovak mission.
