Hi I'm Haylee

I grew up in Mesa, AZ. I am a homemaker. I have three young children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing and write music. I enjoy sewing and crafts. I enjoy cooking. I love to throw dinner parties where we get to eat foods I normally don't have time to cook with 3 young kids. I enjoy going to museums and zoos with my kids. Life with three young kids can be challenging - but I try to enjoy every minute - knowing that all too soon my house will be quiet and still with most everything in its place again.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love the feelings of peace that envelop me when I walk into a chapel or a temple. I'm a Mormom because no matter where jobs take us - we can walk into any chapel in the world and the church is exactly the same. The people are slightly different, the language may be different - but the doctrine and way the church is run is identical. Because of that, we have a "family" no matter where we go. I'm a mormon because as a young mother - I struggle with how to instill morals and integral qualities in my children in a world that to me seems so misguided and out of sorts - this church gives me so many guidlines and helps to do this. I'm a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ lives - and that he loves ME! I want my children to have this same affirmation and the peace that comes into your life when you know this is true.

How I live my faith

I am blessed to be able to work with the children at church. I adore hearing thier thoughts and ideas about the things they are taught. Children have such a way with words and have no fear - so their words are so pure in regards to what they see and feel. I am amazed at the many things I learn from them - when it is my responsibility to be the teacher. We learn songs together and they take turns giving short talks and prayers. It is great practice for them and it is so fun to watch as they get more and more comfortable being in front of others. I am also blessed to be able to visit with 4 women each month. They allow me to come into their home and share a short lesson with them. Their insights often increase my understanding - and where I am going to serve them - I usually am the one who feels blessed when I leave. These sisters are constantly on my mind during the month and often I will feel the urge to call them or go for an extra visit. They have become dear friends.
