Hi I'm Payton

I'm an outdoorsy young woman who loves family and writing. I'm serving in the New Hampshire Manchester mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My life has been an adventure. I've moved 9 different times and attended 10 different schools. As a kid, I could've been described as a shy, creative girl who loved writing, drawing and reading Harry Potter. My family spent all we could in the outdoors: camping, fishing, hunting, and boating. I've seen so many states and sights through the countless road trips my family has taken. Now, as a young adult, I'm still outdoorsy, adventurous, and still love writing, art, and Harry Potter. However, I can definitely say I am not shy anymore. I love meeting and connecting with people. I believe that one of the greatest blessings here on this earth is our opportunity to touch the lives around us. It is through the love I feel for people that has driven me to serve a mission in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I do not 'live my faith.' My faith IS me. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has made me who I am. I would be nothing, if not for my Savior and my Heavenly Father. I didn't use to have a strong testimony of the Gospel, but over time, I've gained in faith and continue to grow closer to Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving an 18 month mission in New Hampshire Manchester. I love my mission and I love having the opportunity to serve the people around me. Christ is the center of my life. I have left my family behind to serve a mission. It was a sacrifice, but I know that the light of Jesus Christ is to be proclaimed to all to nations, tongues, and peoples, and I rejoice in the opportunity to do this.
