Hi I'm Hayden Chatterton

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for my whole life.

About Me

During my high school years, I enjoyed playing the piano and cello, playing tennis with my friends, and snowboarding in the winter. I am currently preparing to serve a mission for the mormon church in the Dominican Republic.

Why I am a Mormon

As a life long member of the mormon church, growing up I often had a desire to build my own faith and testimony instead of relying on my parent's. My testimony of the gospel, and of Jesus Christ's ultimate sacrifice that he made for each of us was built for myself literally line upon line as I read the Book of Mormon. Each night before bed I read the Book of Mormon, and as I did, I was blessed with many spiritual confirmations that the book is the true word of God. As I continued to read it, my testimony and relationship with the Savior grew, and I know in my heart that this is the true church.

How I live my faith

Each month I have the opportunity to visit members of our congregation with a home teaching partner, we teach a short lesson to certain families we are assigned to. I also participate in blessing or passing the sacrament each Sunday in our sacrament meeting so that I and others can renew the covenants we have made with God.
