Hi I'm Haley

Utah is my home! I am currently in New York serving a mission. I love life! Serving others keeps me happy. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I grew up in a wonderful family with parents who taught me the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love sports! I played basketball and track in high school. I am a region champion for 100m hurdles. I played rugby at Weber State University. I was an anatomy lab instructor at Weber State University. I love the human body. I hope to be a Physician Assistant. I love family time. My best friends are my sisters. I love the outdoors. I miss my Utah mountains! I want to live in the country and own horses. I love cooking. Total believer of "work hard, play hard"! I love to be happy! There is too much to be grateful for and life is too short not to be. I love serving others. I love my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ because it is where I have found happiness, direction, peace, protection, and eternal love. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who's loves me, and all his children, more than I can comprehend. I know he watches over me and guides me. I know that his Son Jesus Christ suffered for the sins of the world. I am humbled and eternally grateful for his unfailing understanding for my trials. I am overpowered by gratitude for repentance an in turn forgiveness from my Heavenly Father. I know that the standards and guidance from our living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, come from God. I know that these standards protect us and provide us with how to gain happiness in this life and eternal happiness in the experiences to come. I know that before I came to this earth I followed Christ and his plan and that is why I am here. I know that if I choose him once in Heaven I will choose him again on Earth. I know that we are made in Gods image and that we are destined to live forever. I love this Gospel because I can feel the power of the Holy Ghost and I cannot deny it. I know that this perfect Gospel is made up of imperfect people. I know that it doesn't matter where I am at compared to others in my spiritual growth, but as long as I am moving forward, trying, and improving then I am where I need to be. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and he did restore this Gospel. I am eternally grateful for all the hardship and devotion that he went through so that we could receive another testament of Jesus Christ (The Book of Mormon) and further our spiritual growth learning from the doctrines within. "Shall we not go on in so great a cause?" -Joseph Smith

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in New City, New York as a full-time missionary and I LOVE it! I grew up leaning on my parents testimony of the church. During my early teen years I realized that it was important for me to gain my own testimony. Through the good times and the bad I thanked my Heavenly Father for his eternal plan of Happiness. I live this Gospel with devotion and love for my Savior and his infinite atonement. I know my imperfections are great, but I also know that if I am obedient to Gods commandments I will return to him perfected. Keeping his commandments is where true happiness lies. Serving others is how I find joy in this life. Serving a mission is crazy, hard, worthwhile and worth it!
