Hi I'm Hayley

I am a true Californian girl who loves the beach and avocados and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the California Oakland/San Francisco Mission. I am majoring in Exercise Science at Brigham Young University to become a physical therapist. I am extremely competitive and love playing sports like soccer, swimming, running and just being outdoors. I LOVE the beach. It is the happiest place on earth for me! I love dancing like a fool, eating carrots and salsa, having dart guns wars, and watching old movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me greatest peace and happiness on this earth! Knowing that my Father in Heaven loves me is one of the most powerful truths I have learned throughout my life. The gospel is simple. By keeping the commandments, we can all return to live with God. The gospel is a lifestyle of loving God and loving others. By serving others and bringing people closer to Christ, I find the greatest joy. I am a Mormon because even when trials come my way, I know that I have a Father in Heaven who is constantly cheering me on and willing to help me as I learn and grow. I continue to strive to live this gospel to the fullest so that I can have eternal happiness with my eternal family during and after this life.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I get the chance to stand as a believer of Christ and testify of Him all day, every day. I live my faith by sharing the gospel with others and telling them about the love God has for each and every one of us, showing my love for others by looking for opportunities to give service, and enthusiastically being converted to the gospel every day!
