Hi I'm Harley.

I'm a college student. I'm a convert. I love being a big sister, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

Four years ago I was introduced to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and since ever since that day my life has completely changed. I grew up in a crazy environment. My family was not very religious, and did not make very wise choices. Their choices led me to being unhappy and I began to ask myself, "is there more to life." A Mormon family lived down the road from me. I noticed that their family was so much happier than mine and I began asking them a lot of questions. I learned that God is my loving Heavenly Father and He does know me! This knowledge has changed my life forever. I began meeting with the missionaries and a year and a half later I was baptized! The Gospel has changed my life! It took more from the darkest place I have ever been and led me to the light.

Why I am a Mormon

My upbringing as a child is a major reason why I joined the church. My family lived a life that was very contrary to the gospel and it was a hard environment to grow up in. I always felt like there was something missing from my life, and after meeting a family that belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I realized that I was missing the gospel. I am the only member of my family to join the church, and although it is been hard sometimes it is completely worth it. After being a member for two years I was adopted by a member family and that was when I realized that Heavenly Father did have a plan for me. I know that He knows me and loves me, and all of His children. The gospel has blessed my life so much!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying to Heavenly Father daily and following the guidance He gives me. Even if I don't know where He is leading me, I know that His plan for me is greater than anything I could do for myself. I am also living by faith by serving a mission. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed by life so much, and now I get to share it with others for the next 18 months of my life.
