Hi I'm Bailey

I grew up in Las Vegas, NV, am an elementary school teacher, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of seven children, and love my whole family very much. I grew up with a huge commitment to gymnastics, starting at about age 6 I was in the gym for 12-15 hours a week, and by the time I was 10 I was there for more than 21 hours a week. My husband and I don't have any children yet, but we hope that some day soon we will be blessed with a sweet little baby.

Why I am a Mormon

I want nothing more than to be a mother. I love teaching school, it is so much fun! But there is something special about raising your own children. My husband and I have been trying for quite some time to have children. I have had two miscarriages so far. We found out that there is a problem with our fertility, and it will be nearly impossible for us to naturally conceive and carry a baby full term. I am Mormon because of the comfort and knowledge that this gospel gives me to keep pushing me forward. I believe that even if we can't have our own baby in this life, there is another wonderful life that awaits us and in that life I will have the opportunity to build a family. I know that this life is more than just us getting through trials. There is a plan of salvation, and this life is only the beginning of that plan. I know that when a loved one dies, I will see them again and that makes death easier. I am a Mormon because I believe in living my life as close as possible to the way that my Heavenly Father wants me to, and through much study and prayer, I believe that this is the true church, and by living these gospel standards, I am striving to live my life as close as I can to the way I should.

How I live my faith

I teach Relief Society, which is for all women in the ward, once a month. I also work with the cub scouts through our church with my husband. I organize Wednesday night activities for adolescent boys and help them to achieve all of their badges which also helps them have a positive outlet that keeps them out of trouble. As a third calling, or assignment in my church, I am called as a Visiting Teacher,which is something that all women get. You are assigned a partner (who usually becomes a very dear friend), and then you get to visit other sisters in your ward, who you might not know and get to know them and help them in any way that you can, and of course share an uplifting spiritual message with them. It is a huge blessing because I know that wherever I move to, I will always have a network of friends through my Visiting Teaching.
