Hi I'm Hayden

Hey, I'm from Bountiful, Utah. I love rugby, motorcycles, and adrenaline. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love anything to do with adrenaline. If it sounds fun, and adventurous, I do it. I love to play Rugby, Soccer, and any other sport I get the chance to. Me and my friends were the start of the Bountiful Rugby Team. My family also taught me to value music. I appreciate music to its fullest. I hear and understand the artistry and beauty in all kinds of music. I can also play just about every instrument you can think of. Music is so important to me in my life, especially since it helps focus my feelings. I've performed a variety of different genres of music all over the state of Utah. From the stage of In the Venue, to Abravenel Hall. I am 2nd to youngest of 8 children. You could say I lived the farm life growing up, learning to take care of gardens and chickens. After high school I spent some time working with Seasons Four Landscape. Working landscape taught me to value the beauty of the earth. I look forward to a career in police work someday though. Right now, however I am serving a 2 year LDS mission in Atlanta Georgia!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a mormon home, but I made the decision all on my own. I came to a knowledge of it's truthfulness for myself. I follow the gospel of Jesus Christ because I know that it is what will bring me happiness. I have a testimony that Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ are real. I know that we all make mistakes, sin, and lose our feet in our lives, but through the atonement we may be forgiven for all of that. I know that there is more to life than just living and dying. I am here on the earth for a purpose. That purpose is to struggle, and to do my best to be worthy, to make the right decisions that someday I may return to live with God when I have finished my time here on earth. I also know that God knows me. He know everything about me. He loves me and wants me to do my best and to be happy. Gods loves all his children, no matter what. I want to be my best so that he will also be proud of me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday. And soon I will be serving my church as a missionary. I try to use clean and honest words. I do not smoke or drink alcohol. I don't take drugs of any kind. I help those around me. My friends, my family, and anyone who may be in need of my help. Often times the people who I talk to have struggles in their lives. There are countless times that I've been able to help give direction to people by teaching them of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Once they understand what true happiness is, I have seen a change in their heart and their lives. I am often times put into positions of leadership. Through my knowledge I have always tried to be a big brother to the people I get to be around. Many times have I had to explain to people why I live with such high standards. It makes me happy when I see others set higher goals and morals for themselves because I can see how it blesses them. I believe they see it too.
