Hi I'm Hailey

I'm part Native American. I was adopted. I work in Public Relations. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a BYU graduate in Public Relations. I work full time in marketing and PR. I'm married to the love of my life. I love snowboarding, playing basketball, hiking, biking, long boarding, camping, swimming, baking and challenging myself in all aspects of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an LDS home and left the church for a few years. Those were some of the worst years of my life. I remember thinking everyday that something was missing, and I knew exactly what it was. It was the gospel and the companionship of the Holy Ghost. I returned to the church, served a mission and married the most amazing guy I've ever met. There is nothing out there in the world that is better than the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I served a mission in Londrina, Brazil. I try to live my faith by being an example to others. I generally won't come out and say, "hey I'm LDS!" I want others to ask me about my faith by the way that I live.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

My little sister died after eight hours of being here on the earth. This broke my family's heart, but at the same time we were comforted. We were comforted in the knowledge that this life is NOT the end! There is a plan that God created, The Plan of Salvation. This means that we have a life after death. Death is not the end. There is more life to come. When we live righteously, keep the commandments, and follow Christ we will be able to be reunited with our loved ones once we die. Heavenly Father loves us so much that He gives us the opportunity to have eternal families. That means I can someday see my sister again and get to know her. For those who are struggling with the death of a loved one, I can testify that death is NOT the end. We WILL see our family members again -and if we live according to God's commandments- we will live with them forever. This knowledge brings so much comfort to me. I know that I will be with my husband forever. I will always be with him. We will always have our eternal family. Show more Show less
