Hi I'm Sister Haley Knight

I'm a missionary, a writer and a Mormon.

About Me

Hola! I am 26 years old and am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Tennessee Nashville Mission in the Spanish language. I studied and graduated from cosmetology school, have had many happy years being a nanny and am planning on going back to school for Film and Video. I love art and anything that comes from creativity because I believe that God is the ultimate artist. I love looking at the world as one big canvas and at each person's life as a novel- all created by God! I love getting lost in my own imagination and using my own creativity whether it be through writing, drawing or daydreaming about films I want to make. I LOVE people! I love getting to know people, even if it's just for 5 minutes, and getting to hear a piece of their incredible story.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of years and years of not feeling any connection to God or a desire to know Him, I was led to a prayer. This prayer powerfully testified to me that God is real and that He truly is my Heavenly Father. I then decided to read the Book of Mormon for myself, with a true intent to know if the things I had been raised to believe were true. It didn't take me until a few chapters into the Book of Alma to feel that the Book of Mormon is true. It testified to me that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that through Him, I have a second chance and can have a clean slate. This knowledge has meant everything to me ever since. I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. Through prayer and studying the scriptures, I've come to know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and that Jesus Christ has restored His true church to the earth in our day so that we can know the true and complete way back to Him and our Father in Heaven. I am a Mormon because I have the peace and comfort that I can be with my family forever someday. The gospel of Jesus Christ has molded me into the person that I know God has created me to be at this time. I have never found anything in this world that has given me so much inspiration and true joy in my life than the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying to my Father in Heaven and reading His holy and inspiring words in the scriptures everyday. I look forward to church every Sunday and renewing my covenants I made with God when I was baptized by partaking of the sacrament. Right now I have the privilage of living my faith by serving a mission. I have made the decision to serve a mission because I want every single person to know what I know now- that they have a Savior and are NEVER alone. I want others to feel the constant love and companionship of their Heavenly Father and Savior, Jesus Christ, through the Spirit that comes through baptism and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. I live my faith by loving God, loving Jesus Christ, loving others and also loving myself. I live my faith by serving my fellow men, my Savior, and my Heavenly Father.
