Hi I'm Hayden

I grew up in Blackfoot, Idaho. I play 4 musical instruments, I have a blackbelt in Ju-Jitsu, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and just graduated high school in the top 10 of my class. I play 4 musical instruments which are the piano, trombone, guitar, and an african instrument called the kalimba. I also like to do ju-jitsu which i've been doing for 6 years and am now a blackbelt in. I also like to do rock climbing and rappelling. I have also earned my eagle scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and have been in it all my life. I live in a community that is mostly LDS so it isn't a hard thing to be of this faith.Yes it comes with its fair share of challenges, but I like to view them as blessings and safe guards that help me in my day to day life. This gospel has brought so much happiness to my life because I know that no matter what I do, no matter how far gone I may feel, Christ my eternal savior and friend has his arms open wide to welcome me and take away the pain. He suffered through the atonement so that I can have eternal happiness. He knows what i've been through and what i will go through. He loves me and I love him! I must continue to strive to be worthy of his eternal sacrifice so that I may be saved in the last days. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church regularly, and actively participating in the lessons. I also go out and do my home teaching, trying to help those around me. I try to see what service I can do for my friends and neighbors or just someone I see on the street. Even a smile can make someone's day better! I try to invite friends to come to youth activities with me whenever they can! I also live my faith by spreading the gospel, which I will be doing a lot of the next 2 years as I will be serving a mission to San Antonio, Texas starting in September.
