Hi I'm Peyton

I grew up in California, USA. I play American football. Youngest of 5 children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student but currently serving a mission in England. I played football in college my freshman year and played 10 seasons in high school and junior league previous to that. I am an Eagle Scout. I played the violin for 6 years prior to high school, stopped to focus on football in high school, and have started to play again. In my spare time I enjoy exercising and playing sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church into a very active family so I have gone my whole life. I would say I wasn't truly converted until the summer going into my senior year of high school when I decided to read and pray sincerely about the Book of Mormon. After a couple of consecutive nights of reading and praying without receiving any definite answers I received an undeniable answer.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary serving in the England London South Mission. I help people to learn about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. The best way I have lived my faith when I didn't have a name badge on was by being an example. This example was best shown by holding my stance on certain beliefs but never allowing the situation to become contentious but rather a simple teaching moment. When trying to live a faith in a changing world the best thing to do simply make the decision to keep the commandments long before the opportunity arises.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Peyton
I believe the we can increase our faith in our Savior Jesus Christ by reading the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and talks about the ancient inhabitant of the Americas and their struggles in teaching others about the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as Jesus' teaching there after he was resurrected. I know that if anyone was to read the Book of Mormon and prayed about if it was true, that they would receive an answer that it indeed was. I know that if we have a testimony of the Book of Mormon, we have a testimony of our Savior. The best way to attain this testimony is by reading and praying about the Book of Mormon and applying the principles it teaches to our life. If anyone does this then they will see the positive results it has on their life. Show more Show less
