Hi I'm Rhett Haney

I grew up in the rainy northwest. I love sports and music. I am going to serve a mission in Los Angeles. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am and will be in love with sports for life. I love to watch and play tennis, basketball, and soccer. I am studying Accounting and hoping to follow in my dad's footsteps and become an Accountant. I am currently a student at BYU. I love being here at BYU. I am an avid BYU sports fan and follow Seattle sports teams as well. I love music and am a big fan Independent music. I am really excited to serve a two year mission in North Carolina. I am also excited to learn the Spanish language.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? I was raised in the church. I originally just went to church because my parents brought me; however, as I got older my parents said that I was allowed to choose what to do. Now that I am in college I have so much choice in what I do with my time. I recently have been reading the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ(along with the Bible). I have noticed throughout my life that when I am following the guidelines and principles established in this church that I am happier. I have honestly never felt like church is a waste of my time. It has always been there as a support for me and I know that is the most true thing on this Earth. I believe that whatever happens in my life happens, but that I will keep moving forward with my faith in God and to live the life our Heavenly Father has granted me.

How I live my faith

I currently attend church at BYU. I currently serve as a group leader over 15 freshman students at BYU. I coordinate and plan activities to help strengthen their faith in Jesus Christ and to take a break from everyday life and have some fun. I am also a home teacher. This means that me and another member of the church teach another dorm and help serve them.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Rhett Haney
One of the most important things we can do here on Earth is to prepare ourselves to meet God after life. In order to this we need to come to know our Father in Heaven while we are here on Earth. Through personal experience, the best way to know God is to pray often. When we pray with faith, and with a strong desire to know him we can feel his comfort. One thing I like to do is pray before I read my scriptures. In our prayers we can talk directly to God and when I read my scriptures(The Book of Mormon usually or on occasion the Bible) I can receive answers to any questions I have. It has been taught that when we pray we speak to God, and when we read he speaks to us. This has been the greatest factor in my life that has strengthened my relationship with my Heavenly Father.
