Hi I'm Haley

I am preparing for a mission in the MTC. I leave for Houston, Texas in one more week, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an Exercise & Wellness major at Brigham Young University. I currently work at Glasses.com as a Glasses Specialist, and love my job! I absolutely love to travel, and have spent time as a nanny in San Francisco. I grew up as a Mormon and love to live the Gospel teachings, as they bring an incredible amount of peace and happiness to me! I am serving in the Texas Houston Mission beginning August 14th and can think of no better way to spend the next 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I had a testimony of the Restored Gospel, I heard someone say "I would rather live the gospel and find out there is no God, than not live it and find out there is." Since I was lacking spiritual strength at that time, I adopted this mindset, and as I continued to live the gospel teachings, I found so much joy and happiness in my daily life and eventually did develop my own testimony. I KNOW The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only restored church on this Earth, and am so grateful for the courage and faith of young Joseph Smith in bringing it to pass. I know there is a living prophet who leads and guides us in these Latter Days. I know that I am a Daughter of God and have infinite potential when working with the Lord. I know the Lord suffered for my sins and those of our Brothers and Sisters on the Earth. I know that if I continue doing my best and keeping the covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father, that I can return to live with Him and my family for time and all eternity. I am so excited to share my testimony and the incredible blessings of the temple and the gospel with those I meet.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving daily to be a light in the darkness. There is so much surrounding us that can bring us down, and the simple example of a righteous person can make such a difference to one individual. I strive to fulfill my church callings, and will share my faith with anyone I meet. My beliefs are such a huge part of me that I wouldn't be true to myself if I tried to hide them. I love participating in church activities, especially those held for Young Single Adults. It brings us together as church members and allows others to see the unity and love we are spreading to the world! We truly are working together to build up the Kindgom of God, and it is an incredible thing to be a part of!
