Hi I'm Clayton

I'm from Idaho. I Whitewater Kayak. I Chase Waterfalls. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Right now I am a missionary representing the Lord Jesus Christ. I love that more than anything. I love adventure. I have lived in Idaho my entire life. During the winter I love to snowmobile with my dad and uncle. I live for climbing mountains and tearing up meadows on the snowmobile. During the summer I enjoy spending my time as a counselor at a summer camp for kids 10-12. I spend a lot of my time waterskiing/wakeboarding/surfing with my family on the lake. I love to whitewater kayak the rivers of Idaho. I enjoy spending my time working on art, playing the piano, and sharing jokes.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon, compared it with the Bible and know that it is true. As I make Christ my foundation and study and grow and exercise my faith from there, I know I cannot fall. The way that members practice the teachings of this Church is also evidence to me that this is Christ's true church. As someone recently said to me, this is Christs true church, and we as members actually practice what other churches preach because we we have the full gospel and cannot live outside of it. We invite all people to hear what we teach, and then invite them to ask God if it is of good worth. I know the restored Gospel blesses all people. This is a bold, but loving church. I know that God loves us, and we are his children. I know that he blesses those who keep his commandments. I know that this is the most correct church on the earth today, and that it functions under his power the priesthood. I know that through Jesus Christ I am able to repent and better myself so I may return to our Heavenly Father someday. I know that when we are struggling, if we pray, God will hear our prayers and comfort us.

How I live my faith

I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I go door to door and down the streets talking to as many people as I can about the true, restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I love what I do. Only get to do it for two years, but it is my favorite thing ever. My success is seen as I continuously invite people to come closer to Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons do not help only Mormons. Growing up in scouting and the LDS church, I had the opportunity to help with service projects for a number of people in my neighborhood and community. I remember raking leaves, mowing lawns, washing windows, and shoveling driveways for many people in the neighborhood who were not Mormons. Mormons are all about helping out anybody who needs it, because that was how Jesus Christ was. Show more Show less
