Hi I'm Hyrum

I am from Rexburg Idaho, I love to play sports, I come from a large family, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. However, I am normal just like anybody else. After I serve my 2 year mission in San Antonio Texas, I will go on to college to play basketball. I love sports of every kind! however, I am also a very "outdoorsy" person. I once backpacked through the Grande Canyon, and camped near the Colorado River for about a week. Much of my time is spent with my friends and family. I love to play card games, and board games, as well as going and working out. I like to think that I have a very diverse life, and I love every second of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but I haven't always been active in the teachings of the Gospel. When I was a junior in High School, I struggled immensely with my testimony. I got caught up in the popular things of the world, such as parties and girlfriends. Then, near the end of the year a missionary befriended me, and showed me what true happiness can look and feel like. He was always smiling, and at first, honestly, it really annoyed me! There were all these horrible things happening around us, and here he was without a care in the world. But as I said, he was truly happy, and as I got to know him better I realized that this happiness was contagious. He was able to convert me back to the true teachings of the church, and back into a life of happiness, that I will never leave again.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith through acts of Service. I am given the special opportunity to be able to take the sacrament to members of my church who are sick, or otherwise afflicted. This always brings a special happiness to my heart, because I see the difference I was able to make in their day. Additionally, I serve outside of church by helping people move in or out, and by doing yard work for people who aren't able to do it on their own. These acts bring me true happiness as I am able to spread the Light of Christ around my community.
