Hi I'm Hayliann Gatten

I am a future LDS missionary. I love to sing, laugh, and smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student at Utah State University studying Athletic Training. I am very outgoing and love being involved. You can often find me singing or laughing uncontrollably. I grew playing many different sports, but I have a passion for softball. I love reading and playing card games!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the joy, happiness, and blessing that come with it. I believe that each of us was put on this earth to be happy, and for me, being a Mormon increases my happiness because I know that there is a plan for me. I know I have a loving Heavenly Father and a brother, Jesus Christ, who died for me so that I could be forgiven of my sins. I know that I can live with my family FOREVER because of the plan of salvation. When I was younger I always went to church just because my parents did. At the age of 7 I started reading the Book of Mormon in preparation to be baptized at the age of 8. At the time I didn't really understand much of what was taught in the Book of Mormon, but I knew I had a good feeling while reading it. As I have gotten older the Book of Mormon, as well as the Bible, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price, have become tools that I use in my daily life to help answer any questions I have, and to bring me peace. I know this church is the true church, and I know I receive blessings as I live the standards that are set by this church.

How I live my faith

I am currently attending a Young Single Adult ward at my college. I have a calling that involves planning Monday night activities with groups of young adults. I am currently preparing to serve a mission in Reno, Nevada, speaking the Spanish language, and I couldn't be more excited. I have grown up as a member of the Latter Day Saint church and have had many callings as I have grown up. I live my faith my keeping the commandments and studying my scriptures daily, as well as serving those around me.
