Hi I'm Hayley Rose

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 23 year old girl who loves life! I am a student getting my masters degree in counseling. I love my family, they are the most important people in the world to me. I am blessed to be surrounded by wonderful friends, and I love spending time with them. I enjoy being active (running, biking, sports) drawing, baking, reading books (especially Harry Potter), and gardening. I love to learn about different cultures and different perspectives on life. I love the outdoors and the sunshine, so Arizona is the perfect place for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but my heart converted to the gospel when I was a freshman in college. I was not living the way I knew I should, and was feeling the repercussions from my decisions. I went to church for a short while and then left, overwhelmed because of my current lifestyle, and started to walk home. As I was walking, my bishop left in the middle of sacrament meeting, followed me, and asked if I was ok and if I needed any help. The spirit that he brought and the love that he showed greatly resembled Jesus Christ's love. I turned my life around through the atonement and have felt more peace and understanding through the gospel principles than I thought possible. I thank my Heavenly Father for prompting that bishop to show me the love that I needed to see that day, and for continuing to love me, even through my past mistakes. I choose to live this gospel because it brings peace and understanding to my life. I now have a relationship with my Heavenly Father that I treasure daily and will for the rest of my life. I know this gospel brings me happiness and will bring me happiness in the years to come.

How I live my faith

I like to go to church. I also attend institute during the week, which is an organization that teaches people uplifting principles and standards of our religion. I also live my faith by striving to be like Jesus Christ. I believe unconditional love is a powerful thing, and I strive to love every person as Jesus would do, no matter their faults, bad habits, or struggles.

What is faith?

Faith is believing in things that you cant see, but that are true. Faith is one of the most important things in life, as you can't see some things--or the future! Having faith in God, having faith in what he has in store for you, and faith to get through the hard things in life will help you be at peace. Show more Show less
