Hi I'm Hayden Rathmell

I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I love to live an active life style. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently attending a university and I am studying business. I enjoy all kinds of recreational and competitive sports but my favorites or long distance running, hockey, and volleyball. I ran cross country and track at the NCAA division 2 level for a year. I love all music and I am always singing along.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on April 27th, 2014. I grew up with LDS friends and have always been familiar with the church. When I graduated high school and moved away to college I no longer had the LDS influences in my life and it made a significant difference. I was never as happy and I was always stressed out. I eventually met with a pair of sister missionaries and they brought back that same spirit that i was surrounded by growing up. I then knew that this church is where I needed to be if I was going to truly be happy in my life.

How I live my faith

I attended church every week and attend church activities during the week regularly. I am a committee member for the group that puts on Family Home Evening every Monday night. We plan fun activities for the ward and also have short church lessons. It is always a fun time and brings the ward closer together as a family.
