Hi I'm Hailey

I love my family and all of the other amazing people in my life. And I'm a Mormon :).

About Me

I grew up in a tiny town in southern Utah. I love hiking, fishing, chocolate, ice cream and being with the people I love. They make everything fun, even a trip to Wal-Mart. I have definitely been blessed with an amazing family and amazing friends. Although I'm afraid of a lot of things (including spiders, needles, and roller-coasters) I like to be adventurous and have new experiences. I also like any opportunity to serve others. That's why I've decided to serve a mission for my church. I have been called to serve in New Zealand and I can't wait!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but didn't truly appreciate appreciate it until I went to college and started making decisions for myself. I gained my own testimony and love for the gospel. I love the peace and happiness that living righteously brings. I am so grateful for the knowledge I have that Jesus Christ died for my sins and that I can be forgiven. It isn't always easy, but it is definitely worth it. I am also so grateful that I can be with my family forever. I can't imagine losing a loved one and not having that knowledge. As more and more crazy and scary things are happening in our world, I truly do find comfort in the gospel. I also have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I read it and prayed to know for myself if it is true. I didn't have a huge ah-ha moment or anything, but I did have a definite feeling that it is true. It is full of examples and principles that can help everyone in our own chaotic times.

How I live my faith

The biggest way I live my faith is by being an example. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured. I've found that being happy and being involved is the best way for me to do this. Helping with quilt drives, blood drives, and other community events with a smile encourages others to get involved as well. Jesus Christ is the perfect example, and I try to follow him.
