Hi I'm Hayden Mahaffey

I grew up in Maryland. I travel the world. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 18, and went to the local community college. I have been homeschooled for the past 2 years. I am in a bagpipe band. I lived in England as a child. I love history, in fact, I am majoring in history, and hope to use my degree to go into the military, and then teacher children about history! I am currently serving a 2 year mission to the Benin Cotonou mission, in west Africa.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I have felt the love of God come upon me each time I have thought on that book. I also know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and because of this faith, I know I have to live the laws of the Lord. My testimony in Christ means everything to me. It gives me assurance that after this life, after all we can do, we can be saved.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in loving others. I am constantly trying to help create events to bring people of other religions together, and I know that this will help others come to love each other. I am also an SYC member, Stake Youth Council. We help organize dances, and prom, and Youth Conference. I try to live and serve as Christ lived and served. I am not perfect, but I strive to be like Christ.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Hayden Mahaffey
There are many ways we can come to know of our Father in Heaven. One way is to live like His son, whom He sent. This will bring us closer to Christ as well as inform us of how to live our lives. Another way is to pray. Prayer is one of the most powerful things upon this Earth, and we should use it! Show more Show less
