Hi I'm Hanalee

I grew up christian, my best friend shared the gospel and after waiting 2 years, Im marrying him in the temple, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love reading and anything to do with hair! I currently work 2 jobs to help pay for my future wedding and saving money to go to hair school. Im a waitress and i absolutley love serving people and love the restaurant industry. My other job is a book seller and i love the serenity that accompany books and the knowledge that can be attained through reading a good book! My parents both not members of the church divorced when i was about 11 years old and both re married a year later. From the divorce I learned i had serious depression and have to constantly choose to be happy even though i have had dark days and will have more in my future its something i will struggle with the rest of my life. I have two younger brothers (also not members) one is serving in the army in afghanistan and the other working and going to college. Im close to one of my brothers but im working to have a better realtionship with all the members of my family. Im marrying my best friend who served a mission for two years and returned home late last year and im stoked to be a wife and a future mother! Im grateful for the country i live in and the rights i have to live my beliefs and practice them everyday.

Why I am a Mormon

My Best friend/ now fiance introduced the gospel to me right before he left on his mission. He was eating lunch with the missionaries when i ran into them and learned who they were and what they were doing. I had some questions and i asked my fiance if i could meet with them and talk with them i had felt something different when i was around them, i wasnt quite sure what it was but i wanted to know. I met with the missionaries over the next 8 months and it changed my life. My whole demeanor changed as well as my lifestyle, i had been going down a dark road of misery so to speak. The road of my conversion wasnt easy i had many trials and when it came time for me to get baptized i had some friends distance themselves, part of my family was angry and said hurtful things. None of the things i went through was worth sacraficing the feeling i felt after i was baptized and recieved the gift of the holy ghost. I felt whole and clean for the first time in my life and the support i felt from my heavenly father as well as my ward family (church members) and my fiance helped me with where im at today. I continue to have a testimony of this gospel today because i know with my whole heart the book of mormon is true that Thomas S Monson is a prophet of god and im so grateful my heavenly father has blessed me with this knowledge. When i have dark days or tials in my life i feel the hand of my heavenly father helping me through whatever im going through. im also so grateful a young boy in 1820 prayed to his heavenly father for guidance and he was strong enough to answer the call of re-establishing the church of Jesus christ back on the earth. Mostly im so grateful for the atonment and because jesus christ suffered every one of my heartaches and pains i have ever felt or will feel i can be forgiven and made whole through him i cant wait to return to my heavenly father and just give him a great big hug!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in my ward as a ward missionary. I meet with the missionaries and meet those who may be interested in the church and i answer thier questions and do what i can to support our full time missionaries. I try to share the gospel and what i know when i can Mostly i live my faith by being an example to those around me. Sometimes i get scared or nervous just like anyone else about sharing something so important to me but i shouldnt be afraid i want to share what i have and what i feel to everyone who is willing to listen or looking for hope, peace, and happiness.
