Hi I'm Haley

I love being outdoors, biking, serving, and math! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second of six kids to two loving parents. I am currently a full-time student, studying to be a mechanical engineer. I have always been fascinated by how things work and what makes them work. I grew up in a home with parents who always stressed the importance of education and learning. I grew up playing soccer with my three sisters and younger brother. I also competitively debated throughout school with my older brother. I love the time I am able to spend with my family. I spend a lot of my time involved on committees both at my college and in my community. I love being part of a collaboration to create something new and better. I feel energized by meeting new people and sharing experiences. I have a very strong belief that everyone has something special to offer and a purpose in life, and I love discovering that in them and helping them discover that in themselves! I love to travel and explore new places. Even more than that, I love being in the middle of a different culture and learning about it that way. I hope to be able to combine my travels and fascination with different cultures with service one day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have never found anything else in life to bring me as much happiness as this gospel does. When i live the teachings of this gospel to the best of my abilities, I feel so blessed and happy and hopeful. I love knowing that I can be with my family again after death. I love knowing that this earth life is temporary and provided for us to make us the best we can be before we meet our Maker once more. When it comes down to it, I know that I am a daughter of a loving God, literally. Because I am a daughter of God, that means that my fellow men and women must also be children of God. Knowing this helps me see others with greater patience and love. Nobody is insignificant. Every life touches another and each person can be made better through Christ. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Two things have been stressed all of my life: I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and knows me individually, and family is the most important thing in this world. I was taught the principles of my faith primarily in my home by my parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, cousins, and grandparents. I live my faith through the strength from my family, and we help strengthen each other to be better and do better. I have been fortunate enough to have callings in my church to teach the principles of the gospel in Sunday school classes and in small leadership capacities. In preparing these lessons, I am always reminded how happy this gospel makes me and that nothing else compares. I always try my best to live my faith and exemplify what I know to be true. It is the teachings of my church that direct each of my decisions in life.
