Hi I'm Hayden

I am a Californian and lived there most my life. I play Olympic Style Martial Arts. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love, love, love Martial Arts! I am a black belt in 3 different types of Martial Arts, including : Karate, Tai Chi, and Bojuka. I am currently beginning the process to earn my black belt in Taekwondo as well. I am in a family of four. I love to read and create games and video games, which is always fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. My mother had been taught to be a Mormon from her parents, and my father was a convert into the Mormon religion. I continue to follow the Mormon religion, because of how greatly I feel the spirit at certain times in my life. And, when I bear my testimony of the scriptures and Joseph Smith, I feel such an overwhelming feeling, that I know that this is the true church. I would like to bear my testimony that I know this Church is true and that I know that Joseph Smith saw God and his son in the Garden of Gethsemane.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood and I love it! WI have the incredible opportunity to prepare the Sacrament with my fellow Teachers and I also get the incredible privilege to home-teach families in my community, which I absolutely love.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

In most ways, Mormons live a lifestyle similar to a lot of other religions. We go to school, we go to church, we go to sporting events and we have fun! Each night we have a dinner prayer and then at bedtime we have a family prayer together. We study the scriptures everyday for at least 30minutes and on Sunday we do what we call "Family Study", which is when we all read sections out of the Book of Mormon together for an hour or so, before dinner. We also attend Church on a regular basis, which is every Sunday for about 3 hours each time. Other than that, we usually have normal days of school, friends, and sports, which keeps our lives enjoyable and happy throughout everyday. Show more Show less
