Hi I'm Baylee

I grew up in a small town. I am a college student and will soon be serving my savior in Germany. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town with sibling that were all boys. Growing up with all boys made me a person that is strong. I currently am going to college and slowly crawling my way to a Bachelor's degree. I am half way through and have changed my major about 6 times. I work part time in a restaurant. Working in that environment has empowered my love for food, people, and always being on the go. My hobbies are singing, clogging, snowboarding, and trying different local restaurants that educate me in new genera of food. In the month of May I will leave everything I know and move to Germany to become a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ. This new life change has also given me the current struggle of learning the German language. Let's just say I'm gonna need as much help as I can get to learn this language;)

Why I am a Mormon

As a woman that is in her early 20's, it's hard to find peace in our world today. It's hard to find strength in a world that looks down on any type of value. It's difficult to combine all of that with ever changing thoughts, ideas, and values. This world is forever in fast forward and the people in it seem like they are just going along for the ride. The secret I have found is by living this gospel. A person who accomplishes being in the world but not of the world. I am not perfect in this but I am constantly getting back up and starting where I left off, with my savior helping me every step of the way. I tell this with a humbled heart that wishes that one day I will accomplish living a life like my saviors, just as he did when he was on the earth. Being a part of this gospel, Christ's gospel, teaches me and shows me how to strive for this type of lifestyle. I love my Savior and I love my Father in Heaven. By living the way my savior would want me to live I find peace, pure lasting joy, and purpose. I know why God sent me to this earth, I know his purpose for me, and I know what he has in store for me and my loved ones. I love this life and I love it by his true fulfilled gospel. I know why I am here and where me and my loved ones are going when we pass on. I know that my now and future family will last not just for this life but for eternity. And it is only by the gift of the priesthood can we receive these blessings. The priesthood that was restored by his prophet Joseph Smith. I am a blessed woman!

How I live my faith

At my church I go to a all single college member ward. My calling is being a part of the "linger-longer" committee. This activity entails every 3rd Sunday in the month for the members to get together after church, socialize while eating food. I am to prepare and serve the food to the members. This function makes it easier on the members to get to know others that are their same age and to make new friends. Nothin better than free food and good company!!
