Hi I'm Hayden

Offroad enthusiast, farmer, skier, and a Mormon

About Me

I love being out in Gods country, I would rather be out in nature, than going into the city. I am the middle of 5 boys, isn't my mom lucky? I love to ride Dirtbikes with my family and friends. I love working on my jeep and going off-roading with my friends and exploring nature. I work on an Hay farm in Blackfoot Idaho and I love it! Yes I do drive a Big Green Tractor! I love John Deere. People see me as a country hick and i'm proud of that. I love living in the country. I love country music and the simplicities of life, I can have fun by just sitting on the riverbank with friends fishing and talking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, i have read the book of mormon and prayed to know it is true and know it is. I have had trials that through faith have made me stronger and give me better understanding of the purpose of our gospel. I know that this is the most true church on the earth. Other churches have some truth, but not all of it, because of the restoration we have all truths once again, i know that Thomas S. Monson it the prophet, and that god spoke to Joseph Smith and restored the Priesthood and the church through him. I have come to find out that these men are prophets by praying to God and asking him. I'd challenge anyone who is questioning if they were called of God to do the same. I know that this is gods church, As it makes me happy every time I go to church and participate with fellow members. Ant that right there is why I am Mormon, I have attended several other churches while on my mission and this is the one that makes me most happy. As Elder Holland once said: if any other church can make me happier than I am now attending this church, then I'll go to it, but until then I'm staying here.

How I live my faith

I attend church regularly with my family. i try to add to the lessons that are being taught. i look for opportunities to serve others weather it be helping new members move in of just adding to the discussion. I try to be the person that my father in heaven would like me to be. I strive to go out of my way to help those around me. One of the ways I have done that is serving a full time mission In the Maryland Baltimore and Washington D.C.North missions. This has given me the greatest opportunity to get out and teach and serve my spiritual brothers and sisters and be able to help them come closer to my father in heaven. This it the most rewarding thing I have done in my life

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

The church uses tithing to keep the buildings, programs, temples and activities of the church going. It's how we can have a building to meet in every week, have a temple to worship in and have missionaries out spreading the lords gospel. I know that as I pay tithing the Lord blesses me in many ways, some that I may not even see. As we pay tithing we show our commitment to our God. Show more Show less
