Hi I'm Hailey

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have a deep love of reading and am a terrible whistler. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I finished my first year of college and couldn't be more excited to serve a mission in a few short months! I will be serving in the Barbados Bridgetown mission speaking French. School was challenging, but I found immense joy in learning how to better understand my world and learning to better help those around me. I have a passion for music, and discovering new and wonderful artists is a hobby of mine. I am the oldest of two, and the only member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in my immediate family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it keeps me grounded. Amidst all the confusion and heartbreak this world is full of, I find peace in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because when I joined the Church at 15, things felt different in my life. I have never been more sure of anything, and as a very indecisive person, that says a lot. Like a sunrise, I've seen so many small things testify that there is a God who loves every one of His children. The Book of Mormon brings me peace when I read it and testifies of how Christ's sacrifice in the Garden of Gethsemane applies to me. Knowing that Jesus Christ is always there for me, and knows exactly what I am going through, brings me a joy that I've never felt anywhere else. I feel strengthened when I rely on Christ and being a Mormon helps me come closer to Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to emulate Christ's love and love everyone as deeply as possible. I seek opportunities to serve God's children, because that's what He sent us here to do. I also attend church meetings and am preparing to serve a mission to teach the restored gospel. Being a Mormon means sticking to God's laws even when it isn't popular. It can be hard to stand up to peers, authority, and even family, but I live my faith by doing my best to stay true to what I believe no matter what the circumstance.
