Hi I'm Halley

I grew up in Salt Lake City and have been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

I grew up in Salt Lake City and was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I completed a bachelor's degree in Marriage, Family and Human Development which has helped me a lot as I have gotten married and am now starting a family. I am a mother of one, who is almost two, and have one on the way. I absolutely love having a family and being able to help my children learn and to grow. It's exciting to watch as they learn new things each day. I play the piano and I like to do a lot of scrapbooking and different crafts. It is fun to be creative and make things for me home and for others. I also love the mountains and nature in general. My favorite is to go hiking and camping in the moutains. I love feeling the peace of being away from the busy atmosphere of the world and just enjoying the things which God has created for me to enjoy.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom has taught me the gospel since I was little and I have come to the knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel. As I have lived the principles of the gospel that I learned in my youth I have had the confirming power of the Holy Ghost telling me that how I am living and what I have been taught are true. I find that as I live closer to the principles of the gospel and read the scriptures I have true joy and I can feel Heavenly Father's presence in my life. I know that he loves me and that he will always be there for me. I have no doubt that this is God's church and that I can one day return to live with my Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

Right now I serve the people in my church by playing the piano for the Primary, children ages 3 to 11, as they sing and learn songs teaching them of the principles of the church. It is amazing how much we can learn from music and the spirit and power that we can feel as we participate in uplifting music. Each day I read my scriptures and read the words of our living prophet and the apostles today. I try to learn what Heavenly Father wants me to do and I apply it into my life each day so that I can be more like him and live my life how he wants me to live each day and not just on Sunday when I go to church. I truly am a better person each day as I do these things.
