Hi I'm Hailey

I'm a runner. I'm a sister, a daughter, and a friend. I love to sing and read. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a Missionary for the Church in the New York New York North Mission! I am speaking Spanish and it is absolutely amazing. I love being able to talk about Jesus Christ and share His glorious gospel. It's hard sometimes, but for someone who loves to learn new things, it is very much worth it. I have lived most of my life in Michigan on both sides of the state, so I'm a Michigander through and through. I am the oldest of 4 kids, with two younger brothers and a sister. I love to run, sing, watch Broadway shows, watch movies, read, and be with people I care about. I love learning about other cultures because of my opportunity to live in Mexico City, Mexico when I was younger. I also enjoy traveling and getting to see the world and learn about everything this world has to offer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the tremendous testimony that I have of the atonement of Jesus Christ. During my sophomore year of High School, I struggled for 5-6 months with serious depression. During this time, I had to turn to the Savior so he could literally "grant me daily breath." Not a day goes by any longer where I do not feel the love of my savior. I know that he suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane not just for my sins, but for every pain, heartache, stress, worry, and sickness that I feel in my life and for all of these things for the rest of the people who have lived, do live, and will yet live upon the earth. He did this because he loves each and every one of us with an infinite love and wants us all to come home to him one day. I am a Mormon because I cannot doubt the love of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for all of their children. I cannot doubt that he knows each and every one of his children personally and cheers with us when we are happy and cries with us when we cry. My foundation lies in Christ and because of that, I will be steadfast and immovable in his gospel.

How I live my faith

I feel that I live my faith by trying my best to keep all of the commandments that Heavenly Father has given to us. I read my scriptures daily and pray. I look for times in my life where I can see the Lord's hand in my life and where I can remember everything he has and still does for me. I try to be the best example I can be so that others can see that I am a child of God and live by his gospel.
