Hi I'm Hayden Parker

I'm 19 years old. I'm a baseball player at Brigham Young University. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Hayden. I am 19 years of age. I play baseball for Brigham Young University. I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the El Salvador San Salvador West/ Belize mission. I am the middle child of three boys. I enjoy being outdoors. And I love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I personally know with every fiber in my being that God our loving father has given us the fulness of His gospel to live and learn in these last days. I was born into this church, but sooner or later everyone must figure out for themselves if the Mormon church is really true. This is what I have done. Conversion is a life long process but I have been blessed with an understanding that this is where I am supposed to be and what I am supposed to be doing. The gospel is true. The church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by allowing Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to work through me everyday. This means whether I am sharing my testimony and beliefs to other members, or simply smiling and being a friend to all. I try to 'live in such a way that people who know you but don't know Christ will want to know Christ because they know you.'
