Hi I'm Halee Gines

I am small town girl working and going to school in St. Louis. I love to travel, I dance when I am stressed, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 24 years old and I am working on my masters degree. I served a full time mission. I have traveled to India, Peru, and Turkey!

Why I am a Mormon

WhenI left for college I could see the Temple out my window and I had a strong desire to be able to enter there. I began to read the Book Of Mormon and I wore my knees out praying to my Heavenly Father. After months of this I felt the most amazing happiness and peace in my life that I never had before. I came to know Jesus Christ and his atonement and the amazing power that came from applying the atonement in my life. I know that through the atonement we can overcome any difficulty, hardship, or pain. The Savior will take it all away. I came to know my Heavenly Father and how much he loves me and is aware of my doings. I came to know with out a doubt that the Book of Mormon is actual events that happened and that prophets of God wrote and translated them. I am Mormon because this fullness of the gospel brings me peace, happiness, and the truth that I did not have before.

How I live my faith

Day by day knowing I am a daughter of God! Reading my scriptures, praying, going to church, and serving others. My faith is in the Savior Jesus Christ. I try to learn of him and try to become like him.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Halee Gines
God is out loving Heavenly Father. He loves us and knows us by name. He is aware of us and our doings. He wants us to be happy and have joy in this life. He rejoices when we do good and he weeps with us when we are hurt. He has Body of flesh and bone. He has eyes to see us, ears to hear us, and hands to help us. We are made in his Image.
