Hi I'm Halie

I am a young college student trying to balance school, work, and a social life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young single adult working on finishing college. I love to play the piano, frozen yogurt, and the beauties of nature. My family is one of the most important things in the world to me. My younger brother and I are best friends and through out the years he's taken over the "older brother" role of my protector.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a great family, my parents raised me in this gospel, they took my brothers, sister, and I to church every week, ward activities, and made sure we had great friends. When I was about 6 I remember thinking to myself "what would I do with out this church", as I have grown this question has always been in the back of my mind. Where would my life be with out it? The knowledge this church has blessed me with has given me the strength to conquer some of the hardest parts of my life. Now that I am on my own and making my own choices, I was sure that continuing to grow in this gospel was a choice I made.

How I live my faith

I belong to a fairly large Young Single Adult ward, and because of the number of people not everyone has the opportunity for a calling. There are major ways that I choose to help serve my ward. The first is visiting teaching, As women of the church we are asked to once a month go and visit others in our ward. We are assigned a companion to teach with, and a list of sisters to go and teach. As I have gone and talked with these women of our church my testimony has been strengthened by their example. Another way I choose to serve is when people are called to their callings we are asked to support and sustain them in their service. The best way I know to do this is to help them in any way they need and go to the different things they plan, whether it be Sunday School or a weekday activity, I can serve them through supporting them.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Halie
The family is central to the plan given to us by our Heavenly Father. The family is the means by which children are brought into this world, to be loved and taught truth and righteousness. Our families teach us how to serve, teach, and learn, we can do this by setting an example to our children, or brothers and sisters, or following their examples. It is impossible to choose the conditions of our birth, but everyday we have the choice to make our families stronger and happier through the decisions we make. Through our families it is possible for everyone to return to the presence of God and be united for eternity. Show more Show less
