Hi I'm Hyrum

I grew up in Yuma, Arizona. I love anything and everything camping related. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am serving a mission in Des Moines, Iowa. I played many sports in high school, my favorite is pole vaulting and I plan on doing it in college. I love camping and backpacking with my family. I have received my eagle scout and am grateful to have completed it after so many years of scouting.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and have always stayed active. I love this gospel because of the happiness I feel keeping the commandments brings in my life. I also love how important the role of strong families is in this church. I know the power of prayer and how eager God is to answer our prayers. I also know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and that it does not contradict the Bible, but works hand in hand with it. My testimony is important to me because it is what keeps me firm in my own standards and beliefs, and I can rely upon it in times of trial.

How I live my faith

I participate in as many service opportunities that I can, especially with my church. I have organized youth temple trips and many youth activities. I have been called into a few youth leadership roles.
