Hi I'm Haley Shumway

I grew up in Mesa, Arizona. I love working with little kids. I have 12 people in my family, and i'm a Mormom.

About Me

I am a person who loves anything to do with sports. I have played volleyball, soccer, basketball, and softball. I am currently playing soccer and many of my teammates are'nt lds. It is a great teaching opportunity for me and being their friend they see that i care about them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel is something that can help you understand the meaning to life and why we are given trials. The teachings are essentail to have pure happiness and help me gain a stronger understanding of how this church works. Whenever I am having a bad day or have a question I open my scriptures and there is no doubt i will find my answer. It is very refreshing to have the chance to go to seminary everyday at school and be able to get away from the temptations of the world for that small moment. And I testify that the strong relatonships that are made through the church are ones that keep me going through adversity. Also, that the Lord has a plan for everyone of us and even though we don't know that plan we need to trust in Him to lead and guide us to fullfill it.

How I live my faith

I have participated in many service projects through my ward and stake. Things such as; cleaning parks, washing cars, painting walls, and raking leaves have been the best experiences of mine to know that I am serving those who are in need of someone. The team work that comes with those activities has brought me closer to not only my friends but my family also. It is so nice to know that if my young womens group needs to earn some money the members are always more than happy to have us do work for them.
