Hi I'm Bailey Andrews

I born and raised in the beautiful state of Washington. But I now have two homes, this one and the one in Brazil. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recently returned missionary. I served in Brazil for a year and a half. I'm a college student, trying to decide what I want to do with my life. My father has always been the outdoorsy type, so I was always at his side wandering through the cattails and the cheat grass. And because of this time spent, I love nature and how it truly testifies of our Heavenly Father. I love being active and am always learning something new. I'm a huge baker, which I attribute to all the personal cooking lessons my mother gave me as I grew up. I have a hobby of writing and illustrating children's books. I love to singing and I dabble in acustic guitar and piano playing. I'm the only daughter in my family, with two brothers. One on either side of me.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of the Church when I was born. I grew up beleiving and following the teachings of my parents and the church. And I was completely content in doing this. But as I grew up, I made mistakes that most teenagers do trying to figure out who they are and what they believe. And I hungered for a relief from the follies of my youth. And I found that relief through the Atonement of my Savior. And then I realized that I didn't really understand My Savior or His teachings. Thats when I really started not only learn about the gospel, but to live it, and I started to recognize the bleesings and comforts that come from following the Savior. I realized that to follow the Savior, it's not just a religion, but a way of life. Who we are. And that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

At the moment, I don't hold a responsibilty at church. Before my mission, I tought children, organized activities for the youth group, and I organized dinners for the young adults. But them I served for 18 months teaching people about our beliefs and just helping them in anyway possible.
