Hi I'm Peyton

I love to serve others, I love my family, and I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have attended a university for the past two years since I graduated high school. I love hiking in beautiful Utah, spending time with my family, drawing and painting, and cooking. At school, I work with many different clubs that teach me new things, as well as provide service opportunities in my community.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as part of this church. However, that never meant I had to stay, or have to. I continue to follow the standards and teachings of the LDS church because it makes me happy to do so, and because I have felt Christ's love for me and have seen His hand in my life.

How I live my faith

I have participated in multi-faith meals for the community, in raising money for a non-profit, collecting shoes for the homeless, and helped with multiple highway cleanups. I volunteered at an annual Native American PowWow twice, as well as at a carnival for Autistic children and their families. At school I have learned about Ethical Leadership and serving those around me.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

I live a pretty normal life, and I am so very happy! Sure, bad things happen and hard times come. However, by living the way God has asked that we live, I feel at peace and know that I can be blessed. I graduated high school, I attend college, I spend time with my family, I try to be healthy, and I have many friends and people around me whom I love. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

I have served and volunteered at countless events that benefit people who are not Mormon. I've served at events that benefit Mormons. And I've served at numerous events that help both. Show more Show less

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

Nothing secret goes on in Mormon temples! The practices that happen there are sacred. We encourage, invite, and wish for everyone to be able to enter the temple, the House of the Lord, and join with us in receiving the blessings and knowledge we gain there, as well as the service we provide each time we go there.
